It seems that the error was in the first 670 of the authority record. The bib record referenced (LCCN 54051812) has Kent, William, baker, as 100 and 600.

Subject: [PCCLIST] Coda on using functions in headings
I just came across an authority record that, assuming a typographical error (or a thinkographical error) wasn't made, could be used as the poster-child NAR for avoiding using a person's occupation or other function in a heading.
100 Kent, William, ?c baker
670 Kent, William, butcher. Report of the proceedings at the General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the county of Berks, held at Reading, January 16, 1811, 1811: ?b t.p. (William Kent)
670 NUC pre-1956 ?b (hdg.: Kent, William, baker, appellant)
