Are there enough discrepancies to disconnect this man's parents? [closed]

I have been unable to find anything that says that the baronet (the father) much less his wife was ever in Virginia. The baronet's death date is later than the parental death given on this profile. The Baronet seems to have been very busy in England throughout this period.

Looks like that profile needs some Primary sourcing.  Neither of the 'linked' parent's profiles state that they were in the US.  

The profile for Robert states his father died in 1662 in Virginia, but the linked father died 1667 in England, so something is not correct.  The profile definitely needs more sourcing, as well as possibly the parent's profiles.

Looking at the Changes Log, there was a merge done in June 2018, which had the parents connected to an unsourced profile, with only a My Heritage family tree attached.  The person that added the parents to that profile is one of the current PMs on Robert's profile.

A quick Google Books search turns up "History and Genealogy of the Lucy Family in America" by Gregory Ramsey Lucy (pub. 1959) which says that this Robert is "likely a son of Samuel Lucy" (Samuel is son of Daniel Lucy or Lucye, supposed to have arrived Virginia in 1624 aboard the Susan and received a patent of four acres on Jamestown Island; this Daniel Lucye was certainly in Virginia by December of 1624 when he sat on a coroner's jury).

on edit: added some sourcing for Daniel and Samuel, disconnected Robert from spurious parents and connected him to Samuel as son (death of Samuel in 1662 fits with info already in the bio for Robert).
