Proving links in Anc trees.

I was contacted by someone who had an Anne Lawes born in 1724 in Suffolk, daughter of Thomas and Frances Lawes. My Lawes family are from Wingfield, Mary Lawes born 1662 in Wingfield.

Ann Lawes wed Robert Harvey in 1748 in Wissett, Suffolk, 7 or 8 miles from Wingfield.

The contact has no source info as to where Ann was baptised, just Suffolk, to Thomas and Frances Lawes, but I myself did find a Thomas Lawes marriage to Frances Bungay in 1719 in Denham, near Wingfield.

I like to check things myself to prove a link.
