It is indexed twice - under SMITH and TRANTER.

The usual explanation is that this is a child born to an unmarried couple, registered by both together as joint informants.

The fact that a maiden name of JONES is shown means the mother is married (or has been) to someone else.

You need to get a copy of the certificate to see exactly how the mother's name(s) are recorded to be certain - the wording you remember is not the way it will be written.
