Missing Boscoe baptisms

Sarah Boscoe married Samuel Whitfield in Prescot, Lancs in 1756. The same year John Boscoe married Jemima Yates, also in Prescot. A witness at his wedding was an Edward Boscoe. Sure enough Edward Boscoe also got married in Prescot in 1759. I have also found a Richard Boscoe marrying in 1748 in near by Rainford.

I have found probable deaths for Richard and Edward which gives birth years if c 1728 for Richard and c 1737 for Edward.

What I can't find are any baptisms for them within the period 1725 to 1740, not only in Lancashire but all other counties. I have tried all the sites I can think of. Sarah appears on a couple of on line trees that I have found but only a guess at a birth date and no parents names.

Bearing in mind the several variations of the name Boscoe/Boscow/Bosco/Boskow etc can anyone find them being baptised?

I think that they are siblings and can I stress that I am not interested in who they married.

Many thanks
