Is it time Catherine Stuart was removed as a daughter of Charles II?

There was discussion about this a year ago. I found a duplicate for Catherine Pegge and have set up the relevant merges. When they are complete it will show three children for Charles II by Catherine Pegge but only two are known to history. A daughter of Charles II and Catherine Pegge almost certainly wouldn't have been called Stuart.

Can you find better "sources" on her and her daughter than ancestry, myheritge, and genealogy.com?  Do any of them source any primary documents on either of them?
I suspect there are no better sources for the daughter, because she is totally or partially invented.

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Paulet,_2nd_Duke_of_Bolton] doesn't list her as one of his three wives.  [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_FitzCharles] lists her surname as FitzCharles, not Stuart, though it does list her as an illegitimate daughter of Charles II and Catherine Pegge.

Surname should be changed to FitzCharles as Charles II did have a daughter Catherine Mary.

There is another Catherine on Wikitree, she will show up when the merges go through. But I cannot find any source to say she married or even grew up. The Catherine Stuart is said here to have had children.
Catherine Stuart's LNAB should be FitzCharles.

Possible husbands, Charles Paulet and Charles Paulet KG, have already been marked as unmatched merges.

You don't need to merge the two Catherine FitzCharles profiles, you can make them unmatched merges  until more definitive evidence is found.
