Surname error [closed]

+3 votes

This abandoned profile has an error on the surname.  I've added 3 sources which show the correct surname is Knot / Knott.

One link/ source I've left to the image of the marriage entry shows how the transcription error by Chris Graves has been made due to sloppy handwriting.

I can't see that either Chris Graves or Julia Margaret Nash are Wikitree members.

Who is to correct this LNAB?

Abandoned Profile? adopt it and correct the LNAB. Easy.
Works every time. Tricks of the trade.
Yes, I know that works.  BUT I do not want the follow up alerts which would happen after that.

I looked at the profile because of the incorrect surname! That was the surname of interest to me.

So I want someone else to ....

How odd.  The vicar has confused the years and done the same year twice.  This is the previous image, spelled Nott

As for the other one

the same peculiar letter appears here

(2nd baptism up)



After looking at some more pages, I think the vicar has in fact written Rnot on image 108, unless his Ks and Rs are identical.
Beryl, adopt to change LNAB then orphan.
It is definitely Knot on image 10...the letter was often written like that, especially when done at speed. The original marriage register would probably be clearer, but I can't find the marriage in the Devon collection on FindMyPast.


I'll adopt the profile - change the LNAB and see if I can find her birth place/baptism


Edit - I found the original marriage register ( as opposed to the bishops transcripts)
I've found her 2nd marriage and burial, and found her baptism at neighbouring Farringdon, 2 miles from Clyst Honiton
Michelle, I don't know how you find the time! Wish you could have put it as an answer so I could vote it best! That was really kind and community spirited of you :-)
Thanks for adopting that profile.  I did not want to as later I get updates on it even if I orphan it.

I noticed this simply because I search for IHNOT - a Hungarian surname intermarried into one of my close family lines.
