I've been trawling through the parish registers of Harwich and have found
the baptisms of the following children:

Sarah daughter of Henry and Sarah Deane baptised November 5 1764
Sarah Maria daughter of Henry and Sarah Deane baptised December 3 1766

There is no burial record for the first Sarah and the family didn't move
away from Harwich.
Also there was only one set of parents called Henry and Sarah at the time.

The question is, how likely is it that parents would have two living
children, one called Sarah and one called Sarah Maria?

Thanks
Diane
