Here are the four daughters:

Bridget: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bodkin-590

Mary: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bodkin-591

Margaret: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bodkin-592

And here are the parents:

father John Bodkin the mayor: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bodkin-470

mother Janet Morris: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Morris-23855

The daughters' birth dates are unknown but put in the order of birth so that descendant charts will show that order correctly.

The source being cited is a genealogy compiled in 1723 referring to people born over 200 years earlier, which is often not a reliable source of information.

Sometimes for this Tudor or earlier period, that is the only source we have, but I'm reluctant to make those changes without some research into whether sources more contemporary to the time period can be found.
