Humphrey and Humphreys question

I have the names Humphrey and Humphreys in the list of ancestors I have added to WikiTree.  In the records I was given the spelling is both ways.  My grandmother was not consistant in her use of the spelling.

Two things I do know 1) all the individuals I entered are the same family and 2) a cousin from one generation above mine does not use the 's'.

The families are properly linked.  Should I leave the spelling as is or make it consistant.

Leave them the way you find them. It was a personal preference. Respect  their individuality if you think they spelled it that way.

On the other last name line, add the other name.
