Ancestral File has Elizabeth Randolphs born in Virgina on 1695 and also about 1676. Although the  birth dates are close to two decades apart the husband and the parents names are the same.

In England there were many Elizabeth Randolph's with different birth dates such as 1676, 1679, 1690, 1693, 1695 and so on. They can be found at  familysearch.org

There are many, many 17th. Elizabeth Randolphs born in the colonies. The Randolphs have recently been checked & edited in Wikitree so in every case, please look carefully at parents, spouses and siblings before deciding which particular Elizabeth Randolph you are dealing with.

Their dates of birth will often be approximate or from hearsay; it is their relationships that are important.

Do a name search within Wikitree to see the extent of these ladies already listed here; at least half-a-dozen 17th C. in Virginia and dozen or more in the 18th C.

Just looked at the profiles in question - OH DEAR - more checking & editing needed - can see the issue here.
