Here is Henry's profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bodkin-473

If possible, please also add a line to Henry's biography that says "Henry had only one son, named Richard, who had only one son, named Henry."

Along with the additional line for his biography, please add this source to Henry: https://archive.org/details/archiviumhiberni06cath/page/68

The same answer to the other question

The source being cited is a genealogy compiled in 1723 referring to people born over 200 years earlier, which is often not a reliable source of information.

Sometimes for this Tudor or earlier period, that is the only source we have, but I'm reluctant to make those changes without some research into whether sources more contemporary to the time period can be found.

The source that was attached to Henry several months ago (by me) is the same source used to create Richard though.  The only reason this is being brought up now is because the text has finally been translated, and I was able to understand the text, and create profiles for the remaining people.

Now they just need to be attached.
