Without looking deeply, I'd say probably none. The Profile is mostly a gedcom import with very little work having been done since then. The sources are not the best. Research needs be done. Are you questioning the validity of said parents? Excellent to do so. Have you done research? Do you belong to Wikitree?

Edward Seward and Anne Lister were married in Adel Parish, Yorkshire in 1626.  A child was born to them in 1627, but was a daughter named Elizabeth.  This is also found in the records of Adel Parish.  No other child named Seward was recorded.  I have been looking for several years and have found no records (other than his own assertion), birth, baptismal, or otherwise, to confirm Lt. William Seward's birthplace or parentage.  The records of St. Leonard's Parish, Bristol, which might have contained these data, have apparently been lost.
Thank you.
