Siamese Twins:

Yoke-fellows, inseparables; so called from two youths (Eng and Chang), born of Chinese parents at Bang Mecklong. Their bodies were united by a band of flesh, stretching from breast-bone to breast-bone. They married two sisters, and had offspring. (1825-1872.)

Siamese Twins.
The Biddenden Maids, born 1100, had distinct bodies, but were joined by the hips and shoulders. They lived to be thirty-four years of age.
