NBFirst, we have two daughters (Rosalie and Biddy Jane) whose births and baptisms are documented, but who disappear from the record.
Second, we have two other daughters (Joanna and Bridget) whose marriages and deaths are recorded, but not their births and baptisms.
The balance of probabilities suggests that Rosalie renamed herself Joanna (or Bridget) and that Biddy Jane renamed herself Bridget (or Joanna).
So far, nothing in the record helps to resolve this problem.
