Regarding Adam Gregory ancestor of Henry Gregory, Immigrant?

+4 votes

Modern pedigrees in an effort to stretch our ancestors ever farther into the past, have twisted and combined the ancestry of the New England immigrant, Henry Gregory. It currently looks like this on wikitree and elsewhere.

John Gregory & Maud
Nicholas
Adam & Miss Ormeston
William
Hugh
Thomas & Dorothy Beeston
John & Alice
Henry, the immigrant, died 1655 in Connecticut.

Nicholas had a son Adam, but there is no indication that Nicholas' son Adam was the same Adam who is part of Henry's Line, other than that they both got mentioned in the same Register article. John, NIcholas, and Adam on page 304 and Adam on to Henry on p 306. The author of the article makes no such connection.

Then there is Adam himself. The early pedigrees in the 1567 Visitation of the County Palatine of Lancaster and Thoroton's Antiquities of Nottinghamshire (1677), name Adam and his lineal descendant, not son, William. They are very clear on this point. Grant Gregory in the Gregory Genealogy acknowledges this gap in the pedigree. But, subsequent printed pedigree charts (including Grant Gregory's) do not acknowledge or show in any way this gap.

It is my intention to disconnect Adam from Nicholas, create another Adam to be the son of Nicholas and then to disconnect Adam from alleged son William. All profiles will have appropriate links in the bios to the other profiles.

Thoughts? Objections?
