Please protect PGM immigrant William Dyer [closed]

Yet another instance of someone coming along and disregarding text at the top of a profile, and adding a disproven parent. Please protect this profile from that happening again.  

The "mother" was also added as spouse to this man's known father.  This is another example of why project protection should extend to spouses.

The "mother" in this case was married to a *George* Dyer in another part of England from the found and documented birth location of the immigrant.

See [https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/115864/was-dorothy-shirley-the-mother-of-william-dyer- this g2g discussion].  

Thank you.

His father also needs protecting. This is a disproven Magna Carta gateway situation. Thank you.
_Thank you_, Jillaine.  William Dyer (II) and William (I) are my 8th and 9th great grandfathers respectively, and while of course I would love to find some connection to the Magna Carta, first and foremost I would like to know the truth!

I grew up hearing only about II's first wife, Quaker martyr Mary Dyer (I can remember at age 9 being present at the dedication of her statue in front of the Massachusetts State House) -- nothing at all about William.  Very recently I read Beth Powning's very fine novel, "A Measure of Light" -- others interested in Mary and William might also appreciate it -- and learned a great deal more about both.

My thanks to WikiTree and specifically to anyone who has worked on their profiles; until I saw William II's, I did not even know he'd had a second wife.
Thanks for the link to the novel; I've just purchased it.
