Please hold on this merger.  I believe it is incorrect.  When I have a some time I will attempt to provide some documentation. 

Edit:   See answer below - concern addressed - good to go.

appears to be the same person as



I am pre-1500 certified, and can "do" the merges, but would like to have some discussion first,

Her death date is well documented, but there seems to be some differences in her birth date.  Also some problems with children's birth dates.  And multiple versions of her father.

Don't think there's a problem ... the other manager is very active and is Pre-1500 certified ... so, when he approves the merge it will get done.

OK, I believe the match is good and can go ahead in the direction proposed.

There is actually a very unusual situation which gave me pause.

Millicent de Bickering/Bekering was married first to John Burdon and by him had a sole daughter and heir Elizabeth Burdon.  This Elizabeth Burdon married Robert Markham, son of the Judge John Markham in question.

Apparently in an effort to get control of all of the Burdon estates Judge John Markham married Millicent (Bickering) Burdon, e.g. his own son’s mother-in-law.

Go down to John’s son Robert Markham-66, to his wife Elizabeth Burden-30, and then her mother Millicent Bickering-1, you will find another Millicent which needs to be merged.

So, Millicent UNKNOWN-3067, Millicent Bickering-1 and Millicent Berkeryng-2 are all the same person.  I would probably merge them into Bickering-1.  Preferred LNAB being either Bickering or Bekering.

Before approving this merge from my side, I would first like to know why Bickering is the preferred LNAB, I have seen many variations on the spelling, Bekeryng, Beckeryng, Bekering, Beckering etc,  but never a Bi prefix.

I am happy to reverse this merge to the Bekeryng-2 profile, or wait for evidence of Bickering being the preferred LNAB. Its a lot easier to merge later than try and fix a bad merge.

I was going by Joe Cochoit's statement above:

" I would probably merge them into Bickering-1.  Preferred LNAB being either Bickering or Bekering. "

Since the Bickering profile already exists, I picked that.

I have no objection to changing the LNAB to Bekering or Beckering, etc..

History of Parliament uses Bekering, so that would be my first choice if Bickering-1 did not already exist
Hi Janet,

I figured that's why it was proposed that way :)

I'm just not happy to merge into Bickering-1 without there being any evidence of Bickering being the preferred LNAB first, as I am not aware to the Nottinghamshire Bekeryngs/Bekerings/etc ever using it.
LNAB changed to Bekering.

As a result of the other merges that have been completed, I am now a Profile Manager, and can change LNAB.
