PGM Thomas Lettice wife: Anne Savoy or Anne Unknown? [closed]

+6 votes

Arborist proposing merges. Wife of Thomas Lettice 1604-1681 (Lettice-7 and Lettice-19) was Ann/Anne 1606-1687 (Savoy-26 and Unknown-53086). Not a Mayflower passenger but related to the Shurliff (Bradford) family. Some sources say LNAB Savoy, some say Unknown. Sources saying Savoy: Findagrave,, (cites George Naylor, The Register's of Thorrington (n.n.: n.n., 1888)). I'd like the merge to be in the correct direction. Any opinion from the Puritan Great Migration or NEHGS researchers?

Bob, there is nothing in either the (published to date) Great Migration series, nor in any of the journals published or otherwise made available through the NEHGS web site. (I.e., the Register, TAG, Mayflower Descendant, etc.)

I did find Thomas' will, which I added to the lowest-numbered profile. His wife survived him.

The "sources" you list above are pretty suspect. I found the Thorington (not Thorrington) registers on and no Ann(e) Savoy to be found. Too bad there was no page number. The reference has several errors in it (note duplication of children), so I wouldn't trust it.

The most definitive and recent source I could find is the 1986

Plymouth Colony, Its History & People, 1620-1691

 By Eugene Aubrey Stratton


p. 317-318

which mentions only Anne, no maiden name.

I suggest you go with Unknown and put "Savoy (unproven)" in Other Last Name.

Then copy paste the above text (edited for clarity) under a header "== Disputed Origins =="

Thanks for the work you're doing, Bob!

Jilliaine and Bob,

I wnt down a rabbit hole this morning and ended up in this profile....take a look, there were 6 duplicates, i have all but one under "unknown" now.   Can we protect this profile so that no one tries to change it back?
Thanks, Robin.
