Hi, welcome to the forum,
cannot be certain it's the same family, but searching for all records involving Edward Grey & Jane in Gloucestershire around that period gives the following records, and no others, which MAY suggest they're all the same family group. These are from the f-o-c FamilySearch site, which is great at automatically offering spelling variations such as Grey and Gray.

---------------------


Searching Edward born Glos c1720-1740, this was the only FamilySearch offering, which seems a good fit;


Name Edward Gray
Gender Male
Christening Date 07 Oct 1731
Christening Date (Original) 07 OCT 1731
Christening Place MINCHINHAMPTON,GLOUCESTER,ENGLAND
Father's Name Edward Gray
Mother's Name Mary


And searching Jane Banfield also gave just the one hit in the county, namely;

Name Jeane Benfield
Gender Female
Christening Date 08 Feb 1724
Christening Date (Original) 08 FEB 1724
Christening Place WINCHCOMB,GLOUCESTER,ENGLAND
Father's Name Thomae Benfield
Mother's Name Eliz

Searching this site's FoD Prs I'm struggling to find any more for their children within our area ???

But could this be our parents, seem reasonable fits age-wise ?
