As you can see the Forenames and Birth and Death dates are too close to be coincidental, especially as they are all from Lindend, from where there are just four families (If you count Banks/Gilbanks separately) mentioned in the Broughton Parish register. The exception is Margaret Banks, I have not been able to find any marriage or death details for her. Let's know what you think, and whether you think I am clutching at straws.

Best Wishes, Jim.
