pre-1500 and data doctor challenge

+5 votes


Walwyn-90 is on the data doctor list. He is pre-1500 and I'm not certified for that.

His approx. date of death is 1465 not 1423. Here is the source

Family History Library (FHL) - 35 North West Temple Street Salt Lake City Utah 84150-3400 USA - Collections Towards the History and Antiquities of the County of Hereford - Duncumb, John - 6 volumes in 7. Hereford: E.G. Wright, 1804-1912 - FHL book Q 942.44 H2d; FHL microfilms 908,356-908, - - vol. 3 Hundred of Greytree p. 13

Obtained from:

if any pre-1500 certified would like to fix the profile.

thank you

The death date of 1465 is indeed listed by Duncomb but there appear to be other problems with this line:

There is a reference on this profile that Thomas' wife should be Alice Hackluyt.  Thomas' son Richard [Walywn-89] currently has this woman set as his wife.

According to Burke, neither Thomas [Walywn-90] nor his son Richard should be married to Alice but instead, Richard's son Thomas (no Wikitree profile at this time) is the true husband of Alice.

Thomas 90 appears to be married to the correct woman, Unknown Baskerville who, according to Burke, is Isabella, "said to be of" the ancient Baskerville line.

According to Burke, Richard 89 is married to Clementia Write.  The WT line shows Clementia as the mother of Thomas 90.

I've sent an email to the PM to coordinate making some more changes to this line.
There are indeed some problems with this lineage; I'm working with the PM to sort them.

Thanks Melissa, but there is a note on the profile of Thomas' son Richard that there might be problems with a pedigree and I think it could be from the source you mention.

It's also a good idea when referring to a source mentioned on another website to actually look at the source yourself, particularly with pre-1500 profiles.  The book is probably going to be available in full-text on sites like Internet Archive or Google Books or Family Search.
