There is serious question about the parentage of Elizabeth, the wife of John Bates (b. ENG 1598, d, VA 1667). I can find no documentation that her last name was Winston, as is commonly held. This may be an error caused by the assumption that William Winston, who was a witness on John's will, was a relative of John's wife. Is there any credible evidence that elkizabeth was a Winston?
Also, John was the son of Isaac, but he is often shown as "John Isaac Bates." is there any evidence that he had or used the middle name "Isaac"?
