Is wife attached to the wrong man?

It certainly does look like Elizabeth Church is the wife of Thomas Vesey or Vesy of Aldham in Suffolk not Thomas Vessey of Little Baddow, Essex.

For some reason known only to Google, I couldn't access the full-text from Google Books but it is here  and the original Visitation of Suffolk is here 

If the baptismal dates on the Thomas Vessey profile are correct then John, Sybil, and Susan are his children with an unknown wife.

Edward Vesey and Mary Vesey are then the children of Thomas Vesey of Aldham and Elizabeth Church.

The son Thomas Vesey is interesting because the baptismal date is as of the son of Thomas Vessey of Little Baddow, but the death date is possibly that of the Thomas Vesey the son of Elizabeth Church and Thomas Vesey of Aldham.

There are a couple of Vesey of Aldham profiles already (Vesey-10 and Vesey-69) but they are in a real muddle and also seem to have a Vezey immigrant attached that perhaps doesn't belong.
As all of this was uncovered as we were trying to work the ancestors of US Presidents, is it OK if I continue to work these profiles and try to straighten things out?
Very happy for you to do that Robin, I only got involved because I thought one of the Thomas Vesey profiles was going to be incorrectly merged, and I'm not really sure who added the EuroAristo project as a profile manager.

If you think the US Presidents project needs to become a profile manager then I certainly have no objections.
