The information on heritage.com may be someone's best guess at the father's birth year. You need to check the parish registers for confirmation. FamilySearch shows a baptism at Oakford in 1592 with a father John. However, this is a transcription and you would need to check the actual parish register to confirm this. Find My Past offers images of the parish registers by subscription. Some local libraries offer free access to Find My Past.
Similarly - there is a marriage transcription on FMP between a Johane DADSCOMBE and a Thomas BLACKMORE at Oakford in 1626. Again - you need to check the register to confirm its veracity.
As I said previously, Oakford registers before 1568 have not survived, so earlier information may just be guesswork.
