Hello Anonymous, This is a collaborative website. Mistakes can creep in as they do on all genealogical sites, but we all do our best to correct them when we see them. Would you be interested in joining Wikitree and helping to improve the profile you think has errors? There is currently no manager for that profile, so you could take it on and develop it with sourced information.

What is incorrect?  I see on Ancestry.com that the name comes up Emma Marian Kate Peirce. Corrections can be made if we know what they are.  

Australia, Marriage Index, 1788-1950

Name: Emma Marian Kate Peirce
Spouse Name: Henry Boyd Coles
Marriage Place: Victoria
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration Year: 1877
Registration Number: 1512

It looks as though the birth year is out as a Henry Boyd Coles wasn't born in 1857, but there was a birth registered in 1848 in the Stepney Registration District that covers Limehouse, and mother's maiden name was Skene, so I will correct the birth year and add sources for the marriage and birth
