The reason there is a "to" is because the way it is wrriten states that the first person "James Alfred Wight" was born by his father who is also named "James" and his mother "Hanna Bell".
This type of writing is mostly used for legal puprposes. In simple terms, James was born in 1916 and the parents were James and Hanna Bell.
As far as the address, it is a legal way of telling the City, County, and Country in which the person was born. The dates (1890–1960), etc are stating the year of birth, and death of each parent.
