Should Robert Townsend's surname be changed to Townshend?

+3 votes
Sir Robert Townshend's profile currently has the current spelling of his lnab, Townsend. The correct spelling in his time was Townshend and not Townsend. Since we use the rule in their time, not ours, should his lnab be changed to the more appropriate spelling, Townshend?

Note that many of the attached family members show the spelling Townshend. Sources confirm that the spelling was Townshend.
