Hi, these profiles need pre-1500 certified members to complete.  Thank you.
WikiTree profile: Agnes Buckfold Gent
asked in Policy and Style by Betty Tindle G2G6 Mach 6 (68.6k points)
There is no notation on the profiles, that the research has been done, concerning her LNAB.. Do you have source for correct name?
Ugh, no, I am sorry I do not. :(

Looks like the lady is either Buckfolde or Buckhurst. The gent looks like someone has mistaken the suffix gent for her fathers surname.

There is something about her in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register from 2012 ( I found the index  pdf ) but I don't have access.  I know some members do.

 Agnes (Buckfolde? Buckhurst?)  53  53n  66

Thank you very much for your help.  :)

Did not take a lot of research to figure out that the correct name is Buckfolde.   The "Gent" came from a tree that everyone seems to be copying that has the father as "Sir William Buckfolde, Gentleman"   That got shortened to Gent and finally in copying lots of times, as people do....it became his last name.

 

However, even that initial tree has NO SOURCES to prove any of the data or spelling, as far as I can tell, this is a person made up as Baron of Kent, Sir William Buckfolde, Gentleman
