Without knowing the source of both here are a number of possibilities

1 – as others have said a private and then church baptism

2 – Different churches

3 – one from parish records and the other from BTs (the clerk got it wrong)

If you got them from ancestry of findmypast both with tell you whether they are PR or BT and also the name of the church

Not a technical problem, but a record source, I have come across two records of christening for the same person on two different occasions, one in 1813 and another in 1814, has anyone else found this?, and how can this be? would appreciate any input, I believe they are at the same church,
