Can someone help with Pre 1500 Profile for William Carrington?

+5 votes

[[Carrington-106|William Carrington]], I adopted this profile almost 2 years ago along with others that were stated as orphaned profiles of an ancestor, currently now showing no relation.  I feel that this profile is either a complete different individual than family linked to or in great need of a complete face lift to correct errors in bio and individual information. 

He is currently linked as brother to [[Smythe-579|Sir William of Carrington V formerly Smythe]] as brothers.  with 32 years difference in age.  but same name.

Need someone familiar with this family line to help either sort out correct relationship.

[[Smythe-579|Sir William of Carrington V formerly Smythe]]  has a son listed on his profile [[Caryngton-1|William Smyth Caryngton VI]], both of these profiles show same birth date of 1310, which shows an  error of them being father/son.  I am thinking that [[Carrington-106|William Carrington]] should be Carrington VI and Carynton VI is a duplicate of Carrrington V.

Please someone who has sources on this family please help sort this out.  I am finding I am very limited to viable sources and only finding information without dates.

Any and All Help is Welcome,

There were no Smith-Carringtons.  It's a notorious 19th century fake.

So are we looking at misdirected surnames, such as Smythe of Carrington who are in fact real persons or totally fictional characters.

If so looks like a project in itself in cleaning up some misguided profiles.
