William Large according to Anderson Immigrants to New England 1634-35" Vol IV:237 was in the colony by 1635. We need this profile which has wildly inaccurate dates to come under PPP as quickly as possible as false information is being reintroduced to this family and profile and erroneous attachments are being reconnected.

There are serious issues with this profile as currently presented in WikiTree. William Large was deceased by 1637 according to court depositions, he was NOT married to Rebecca Phippen. Anderson states he had no children and that the attachment of children was introduced in error by Savage and since perpetuated. It appears there may be multiple duplicate profiles involved now but I'll have to do the searching later today.

Yes, there is a dupe already managed by PGM and it is here https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Large-25.  There is an unmerged match set with Large-556. Sorry didn't catch the Large-25 on the first pass on this.

The profile for Rebecca is 'sourced' by references to a Rebecca living 2 centuries later in Norfolk, England. 

 David Phippen an immigrant  from Dorset is said to have had a daughter Rebecca born c 1622  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Phippen-55#_note-1

  ( its a family which seems to sprout mythical members)

I've ppp'd Large-25

Thanks, Marion. I've contacted the PM to prepare the profile for merge with Large-25 and sever the erroneous connections.
