Why a late baptism? Maybe her parents didn't get around to it, or she might have been privately baptised and no record kept and parents/parish priest weren't sure it was "official".

I have found quite a few baptisms of children when they were about 5 and wondered if it was to do with going to Sunday school or a National Schools.

Another point - she was 9, maybe she was being prepared for confirmation and it was discovered she hadn't been baptised?
