Merging with a difference in LNB

+4 votes
Styles-581 and Style-44 are obviously the same individual.  I would like to add the name of Styles and the name of Stiles to Style-44 so that searching and finding is easier for all.  Is that allowed.  I am uncertified pre 1500.

Many thanks.

Hi Orinda

Yes these are the same person but there more problems than an incorrect LNAB especially the fact that there are few sources. Based on the extracts from the registers in Lysons, Daniel. The Environs of London: Counties of Herts, Essex & Kent. T. Cadell, 1796, p. 301. and the Hasted reference I would agree the LNAB should be Style.

There are so many issues with this and associated profiles, eg the image of Style-44 is more likely his great grandson Humphrey Style 1596–1659, his second wife Peryente-3 has 14 children born to her second husband Townsend all in the space of 22 years in her bio which would be remarkable whatever era you are looking at, names and dates are not sourced and inconsistent, etc.

If you have any sourced info I can add it for you now but given the depth of problems with these profiles the England Project could work to resolve these issues with the profile managers.

Vivienne and Orinda,

Clean-up is now complete on Style-44.  Although there is no doubt his LNAB would have been Stile, I have left it as Style as that is how he is referred to in most of his documents.
