Meppershall and Litlington Rainbows related?

LIke many branches, mine goes back to James Rainbow in Meppershall c1757 and gets stuck there. I note from the Bedfordshire Apprentices List, William apprenticed as a currier in 1703, who is son of William Rainbow, a yeoman of Litlington (now in Cambs). In addition the List mentions Henry, son of John Rainbow, a wheelwright from Litlington being apprenticed as a dyer around the same time. Since the two villages are quite close, one might reasonably suspect a relationship of some sort. Has anyone managed to plug this gap? (which should then take us back to about 1665 or so.)
