Any concerns about consolidating the profiles for the emigrant William Lane?

In working on my family tree I have found that I am a descendent of three of William Lane's children.  Per Anderson's Great Migration series, William Lane was a passenger on the Hopewell in 1635.  There is no profile for him as of yet identified with the PGM project or category and there appear to be at least six profiles for this person:

Possible matches for William Lane 1580 Norfolk, England - 1654 (Lane-229)
  • William Lane Western part of England - 1654 (Lane-932)
  • William Lane 1580 Norfolk,England - July 6, 1654 (Lane-630)
  • William Lane 1580 Norfolk, , England - July 6, 1654 (Lane-575)
  • William Lane 1580 of Beaminster, Dorset, England - July 5, 1654 (Lane-591)
  • William Lane 1580 Norfolk, England - July 6, 1654 (Lane-724)
 
Any concerns or feedback before I start requesting the five indicated merge requests?  I plan on editing the profile to reflect the information in Anderson's work, my grandmother's research and a few other sources.

Cathy,

Great job in identifying the original profile.  This line looks like it is going to be a challenge!

I added the Project Protection to Lane-229 and the Category as well.  There are probably going to be more in this line that will need to be identifed and PPP.  So, if you need help, let me know!
Thanks, Nae!
Yes, thank you Nae!

Sounds like a plan. With the common death dates and the Norfolk connection, while it isn't guaranteed, it's a good place to start.  Wait for others who may be familiar with the family, though.

Cathy,

Thanks for taking this on, and good to know of another PGM'er who has access to Anderson's Great Migration series. Thank you for helping.

It looks like the only profile that has any substantive content is 575; please try to incorporate some of that-- or at least the source information if Anderson repeats it all. The contributor of 575 should also be listed under Acknowledgements.
