William "Dorwin" of London

Dear Fellow Researchers;
I wonder if anyone else has looked into the IGI record for one "William Dorwin", christened 25 June 1706 at St. Mary the Vrigin Aldermanbury, London, the son of a William and Margaret "Dorwin".

The Darwin/Bland Bible record, of course, states the birth of 'our' William Darwin as "26 June 1707"--but maybe the year is out in one record or the other? The Darwin/Bland Bible, after all, was probably not put together until sometime in the 1820's in South Carolina.

I'm endeavouring to view the original parish records for St. Mary the Virgin--but wonder if someone else has already done so?

Most likely this only a vague coincidence, but who knows?
