They have the same birth years, so if they are two different Annes, it seems the birth year of one of them should be different.

Boleyn-104 and Boleyn-74 do not represent the same person because: There would appear to have been two daughters of William Boleyn named Anne. The first Anne died, hence the memorial inscription. William Boleyn then had another daughter, he also called her Anne - she married Shelton.

Boleyn-104 and Boleyn-74 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same birth year, same parents, must be same person. Different death needs to be resolved [Anne (Boleyn) Shelton seems to be better sourced].

Apparently William Boleyn had two daughters called Anne. One died in Oct 1479, slightly under 4 years old. The other married Shelton.
