Please....Can a Pre-1500 Certified member merge Elingbugge-2 into Elyngbrigge-1?" in our G2G forum. Thank you

John Carril and Margaret Carril. ... Name: Margaret Carril (born Elingbugge). Birth: 1477 -- Merstham, Sussex, England. Death: May 12 1525 (Age: 47-48) ...

WikiTree profile: Margaret Caryll
in WikiTree Help by Andrea Pack G2G6 Mach 5 (57.9k points)

Do we have any evidence for the spelling?

(A quick look didn't see any evidence at all apart from trees)

Mentions that this family 'spelt their names in at least 15 different ways'  

There are two early brasses in the church, one for a John (Johes) who was buried in 1477 , that is spelt Elinebrygge and his grandson b 1507 whose name is spelt Elinerugge and Elyngbrigge on the same brass( hope that is copied right; it is annoying not being able to copy and paste on here now when using a phone) 

The editor of the VCH uses Elingbridge for the family.

History of Parliament uses Elinbridge for Margaret dau of John Caryll

EDIT just realised that I have already found some primary evidence for the name

See my answer .The will of John Caryl mentions the name of his first wife.I will check the spelling later today when on a computer.I am pretty certain that it was not Elinbugge

Thank you so much for your help and replies
I'm sorry, this merge would be ready to be completed and it still isn't clear which name should be used. Elinbridge? Elingbridge? Both profiles have a different LNAB from that. There is no indication on the merge proposal which name should be preferred.

There is nothing on either profile that clearly links a source to a spelling.

I can't merge this, it"s too confusing. I hope someone can help you. 

pm is not Pre-1500

pm is not Pre-1500 

If only we are able to get these two profiles from both pm's since they have not obtained their Pre-1500 badges 

There is another that does not have the Pre-1500 badge listed and another pm not pre-1500 certified

These profiles need to be worked on what do we do?

Above links from me

Thanks Andrea, I had already seen that thread. I am a leader and pre-1500 certified so I can complete this merge (even if the wanted LNAB is neither Elyngbrigge nor Elingbugge), but I need to be told exactly what the LNAB should be.

I understand that there were several possible spellings of the name at the time, but (especially in light of several recent threads) since we must "never ever" merge into an incorrect LNAB, I will not take the risk of picking one.
