Ralph Tompkins - Merge needed. Two sets of parents?

+8 votes

Need to merge:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Tompkins-2595 and

Each profile has a different set of parents:

  • William Tompkins-2411 & Margery. There is a 1616 will for William Tompkins attached to Ralph. Margery is not mentioned. He had a son Ralph. He was from Marsworth, Buckinghamshire, England, not far from Wendover, where Ralph married.
  • John Tompkins & Ellen Stannis Ralph b. 5 Aug 1585. This set of parents was disconnected before (replaced with William) Profiles Thompkyns-1 & Stanis-1. These parents are from Monnington, hence the alleged birthplace.
  • Anderson assigns no parents but mentions Raffe Tompkyns, son of John bpt 12 Aug 1659 (15 years older than Hotten's passenger)


As it stands, both sets of parents should be disconnected. Objections? Thoughts? Better sources (I'm hopeful)?

This merge is in "complete this merge after a final comparison."

Please remove PPP from Tompkins-403.  I will detach parents. (notation is already in bio.)

Then I will complete the merge and detach parents that are currently on Tompkins-2595.  (notation is already in the bio of Tompkins-403.)

Thank you.

I hope to fix a thing - three Elizabeths and three Thomases somehow mismerged into one couple over at Family search - ahhh!
