Conrad Gottlieb Scholl 1739 - 1747

Life expectancy
Average life expectancy at birth for English people in the late 16th and early 17th centuries was just under 40 – 39.7 years. However, this low figure was mostly due to the high rate of infant and child mortality; over 12% of all children born would die in their first year. With the hazards of infancy behind them, the death rate for children slowed but continued to occur. A cumulative total of 36% of children died before the age of six, and another 24% between the ages of seven and sixteen. In all, of 100 live births, 60 would die before the age of 16. A man or woman who reached the age of 30 could expect to live to 59. [Thomson Gale, 'Infant Mortality' (1998)]

Translation by Robert Seal:
The middle name of both the child and the first baptismal sponsor appears to be some abbreviated?/variant? form of "Gottlieb" and I further noted in this child's death record that his middle name is clearly "Gottlieb" so that's what I used here in brackets.
1739, on the 16th of August, a little son of Mathies Scholl, tailor and citizen here, from his wife Maria Eva was born into the world in the morning early at 6:00 am, so on the following day was baptized and was named Conrad [Gottlieb]. 
Baptismal sponsors are Conrad [Gottlieb] Kepplinger?, local school master, with Dorothea his wife, and Johann Georg Hörner with his wife.
