Would this have ever happened? Twins?

If a couple had two twins in Victorian times, how common would it have been to give one up to a family member or friend?

I would find this quite unusual though to do so. And if they tried to say they were born to two separate families in the same village then they would fail miserably as everyone would have known the truth.
