Why is the Drake name a red flag on William FitzHarold Drake?

+2 votes
Andrew Lancaster, in the comments on the profile for Harold de Sudeley, says that the name Drake is a red flag for William FitzHarold Drake. Harold de Sudeley had 5 sons, only the first four are listed in a charter for Robert de Ewyas de Sudeley. I assume that William was the son of an unknown second wife or mistress, who may have been named Drake. The sons of Harold did not all take the name "Sudeley"--presumably because Harold divided his barony among his sons, they took different names to differentiate their records and branches... which could have been merely logistical rather than feudal.

The following is just a thought as I can't state for certain as to why exactly.

I believe It may/might be a culmination of factors that stem from the fact of this profile is/involves a pre-1500 individual that's unsourced.

It may/might have been a profile created as a result from a GEDCOM import from someone who is not pre-1500 certified who had placed it up for adoption when that individual couldn't do anything because their not pre-1500 certified.

Just an opinion...

That profile does need allot of TLC from a pre-1500 certified member.
