I suspect the year of birth should read 1875 but occasionally when we see an adult baptism a marriage soon follows and we find this:
Marriages Dec 1891
Highly Margaret Newport, M. 11a 443
Watkins Albert John Newport, M. 11a 443

and this is the family in 1901 at Breams Eaves:
Household Number Name Relation to Head Age Estimated Birth Year Gender Birth Place
20 Albert J Watkins Head 29 1872 Male Coleford, Gloucestershire, England
20 Margaret Watkins Wife 26 1875 Female Lane End, Gloucestershire, England
20 Lilian E Watkins Daughter 8 1893 Female Cwmcarn, Monmouthshire, Wales
20 Rose Watkins Daughter 5 1896 Female Cwmcarn, Monmouthshire, Wales
20 Bertha Watkins Daughter 3 1898 Female Cwmcarn, Monmouthshire, Wales
20 Thomas M Watkins Son 2 1899 Male Bream, Gloucestershire, England
20 Albert H Watkins Son 1 1900 Male Bream, Gloucestershire, England

The Mongenes database tells us that Lilian Eliza Watkins was baptised on 23 November 1892 at Mynyddislwyn

There are a number of entries in the Mongenes database for Highley.
