In reading the profile it could be a misinterpretation of old style and new style dates. It would be worthwhile to look at the original town records.

I thought of that before asking and used the link to the source - but it showed a typed transcription with the same dates indicated in the profile/history facts. I did not see a way to view the original documents and thought perhaps the managers of the Richard Man page could do so and clear it up. The facts for it do give a nod to the discrepancy by putting Man's death year as "1655/6" but verification would be nice. Thank you.
Yeah, my first thought is in OS dates, Feb 1655 is after Nov 1655.
If you look at https://archive.org/details/cu31924070695063/page/n107 , he clearly died in 1655/6.
Okay; I am up to speed now re the O.S. - got it and thanks to all!
