Need to have one person disconnected b:bef.1500 etc.

+7 votes

Hello: I am a Markham researcher, and have begun to edit this general section of the tree, but have immediately found a whole series of problems, and need to change them. Most of the John Markham are mis-linked etc. Per book value, including Markham Memorials, and just about every other single online source of information, is a perpetuation of the same misinformation, badly linked here. I am currently doing intensive sorting for this specific area based on primary texts etc. off-line. There are some truly golden texts that book authors never had it seems, plus Markham Memorials has one date wrong being 1528-02-02 when it should be 1507/8-02-02 etc. (!Out by 20 years!). Just on this point alone, the consecutive John Markham have been mixed up much. Needless to say, the entire chapter around these consecutive John Markham are heavily mixed over !!!. I am still busy to finalize all of this, and there is as I write, sufficient primary information to sort this out. But in the mean time, I need to correct this whole badly linked area even just according to basic book value etc. For me to move on, a few steps at a time, I require a pre-1500 person to do the following for me please (This should be the easiest start way to sort an immediate problem it seems!):

Please can you remove Babington-103 as wife of Markham-56.
Then merge Markham-528 into Markham-56.
If the merge becomes say Markham-56, please merge any duplicate wives, probably being Anne Neville and Anne Strelly, I will sort their offspring out if I am not further restricted etc.

I will sort out Babington-103 in the right place myself, and add her husband in the correct place etc.
I will also assign the comments/etc. to the correct John Markham persons from others as I go along. I did contact a number profile managers with no response yet. This is holding me up a lot.

Thanks - Bart.

I, somewhat reluctantly, removed the marriage between Babington and Markham.   The profile does have a manager.  In the future, could you add a comment to the profile page.  This way, we can see if the profile manager has had a reasonable amount of time to answer your request.
Unfortunately none of the profile managers for John Markham are Pre-1500 certified, so they're not going to be able to help with this.

And... I just realized this thread is two years old. I wonder why it popped up at the top of my feed? :D

I did a bit of formatting and some footnoting to try to determine what information in this profile is and isn't sourced, and I added a source as well that at least confirmed the three wives (though not marriage dates or the names of most of the children). I don't currently have access to "Royal Ancestry", so if anyone wants to tell me what information is included in that book, I'll be happy to footnote those pieces of information as well.
