Mass baptism in a family - why?

In Norfolk in 1784, five children of one of my ancestors were baptised on the same day, in a Church of England church. Their ages range from 28 to 17. In all the parish records I've looked at, I don't recall ever seeing such a baptism.

Does anyone have any idea why such a baptism would take place?
