Mystery Clayhidon burial transcriptions on FMP

Find My Past has transcriptions (no images for these dates) of burial records in Clayhidon. Two separate transcriptions record the burials of |
Sarah Pike, burial date 12 May 1782 Clayhidon, 'An Infant Sister Of Robert'
Robert Pike, burial date 12 May 1782 Clayhidon, 'An Infant Brother Of Sarah'
DFHS has the Parish Register images for this date, and in the register the burial is simply recorded on one line as 'Betty and Sarah Pike, Infants, May the 12th'. The first name is faint but I think looks much more like Betty than Robert. There are no indications of any relationship between the infants, or of the names of their parents. Where has this information come from? (I have not found any record of baptism in the Clayhidon register).
There is also a transcription of the burial of Mary Pike, daughter of Edmund and Sarah, buried 23 Feb 1782, which should actually be on the same date a year later, but there is no way to report errors on these records.
