I see you are familiar with Omerud's history of Cheshire, England. Although Omerud is not w/o errors, the late Cheshire historian Joan Leach told me Omerud based much of his history on that of Peter Leycester of Nether Tabley, and the latter was quite accurate in Joan's opinion. I recently joined WikiTree hoping it would be better than Family Search, and I will be happy to perform an audit on the Daniell or Danyers family of Over Tabley. My ancestor Robert Daniell of East Anglia has never been positively linked to the Over Tabley family, but I have collected much info & data over the years. I am also on Ancestry and Find A Grave.

Hi, RJ. Seeing your recent interest in expunging errors in the history of English families named Lyon, I wonder if you would be willing to find a good home for unconnected profiles Lyon-731 and Lyon-733.

Hi RJ!

Thanks for your hard work on WikiTree. I noticed you have created some Pre-1500 and Pre-1700 profiles, without including any sources. Just a friendly reminder that point 8 on our Honor Code is "We Cite Sources." This is especially important for such early profiles as they are much harder to find accurate records. The Pre-1500 Certified badge is required for adding or editing these profiles. Feel free to stop by the Pre-1500 badge Certification page and check it out.

Again, thanks for all you do here. Have a great weekend!

My tree has Mark Chilton (later spelled it Shelton as the father, and this is confirmed by genetic testing at Family Tree DNA and at They have John Shelton, born 1748 as the father of William Shelton. Nothing good will come of such a merge. I they change the ancestry to match what I have then clearly there should be a merge. Silarly if they can convince me their ancestry is correct, then I would agree to a merge wit their tree shown, but it would need pretty strong proof.

Should we try to stick to the 5 generation limit on the first page, and make one of its main aims a simply listing of further lines?

As we both play with those royals I can see that the style of work appropriate to those further lines can be quite different depending on different aims, and the aims will be different for different types of lines.

I guess one primary aim is looking for things like missing/forgotten people, fake lines, and needed merges - basic clean up. I think with RA checking we are doing a reasonable job of that and we can maybe eventually announce the page as a place to come and look for the latest.

But a second aim is to look then also for lines that have not been much studied. But for the royals this would imply looking for things like illegitimate lines, not famous

Would it be crazy to start a second page to already start sketching tables in a similar format going beyond 5 generations? Seeing forward to how they collapse can be handy for working out the best way of simplifying the very inbred tables on the existing page already?

I tried it out a bit: 1. I took some many-copied lines out of some of the new tables, 2. made a special table for the first generations after Gaunt, and 3. made a section for "recombined" families.

In the Gaunt table I cut out a lot of details for continuing lines and put big bold links to follow for the branches. Does that work? If so we can use that approach in more cases?

The recombined tables begin with many copied lines that would be redundant if we had nice clear linking to the points of origins.

Howdy RJ, It was expressed to me by Eowyn that BCE profiles are not allowed at this time on as we have no way to properly denote(in reverse) them in our present computer codeing structure/ syntax format. As you may know... AD = (After Death) of Christ. BCE = Before Christ Existed. or at least that is how most we silly modern day anglo-saxins do the do. LOL. Presently we can not make our date structure run backwards. Therefore: BCE 200. is longer ago... than BCE 100. I had a page for the City of David W/ tags & w/ pictures & the Copyright embedded properly from the site I gathered it from. But deleted it when I realized it is presently against our rules. That being said ...I myself appreciate any work you do on those files I created.

Hi RJ! I just noticed that you hid Isham-12 as a Gateway Ancestor to Lacy-284 on Lacy-284 Descendants, but Isham's profile shows him as a Gateway Ancestor and that he's a descendant of Lacy. Has the trail not been reviewed/approved? Thanks, Liz

Thank you Rj for your research! I find nine pages on James Cudworth in The Great Migration, all one article - he was a major figure in his community. The problem is I find only one wife, Mary Parker, and she is the mother of his son Jonathan, not Sarah Stoughton. Both Richardson and Anderson agree on this. The mother of Mary Parker married for her 2nd husband Rev John Stoughton. It looks like the wife of Major James Cudworth is royally mixed up on Cudworth-63. I'd like to do a little more work before the two profiles are merged. best regards, April Dauenhauer

Hi Horace, I noticed that you rejected the proposed merge of Henry Percy-689 and Harry Percy-4. You also edited the mother of Henry Percy replacing Mary Percy (Plantagenet-1723) with Mary Percy (Plantagenet-54). I see that somewhere in March I had happened during the merging process to propose the merge (I'm not part of this project nor knowledgeable in any way as the Plantagenets go). I'm just curious why the disconnection of one mother effectively orphaning another ... if this is Harry is not the same as the profile protected Henry, what is the exact relationship? Is he a brother or half-brother or no blood relationship at all?

not a big fan of the expanded table - way more involved than I think we should try for while so many duplicate profiles exist. I quit trying to follow it when I felt a headache coming on. I was just wanting to modify the outline to add the Henry above the Henry who bought Oakwell and the missing John below him, then making the name a hyperlink to the best option for profile. I was hoping to get some input from you, Michelle, or April about your choice of Rev. Robert's parents... I couldn't quite tell from the table, but I did find where it looked as if you had him (or one of him) as son of John & Margaret Wood. (Found because that's what I was looking for :D) I'd like to get the Rev. Robert profiles merged next month, so I'll get the ball rolling with a G2G post this morning. Cheers, Liz

Decided to go the other way and see if I could start in Virginia and work my way back to him (not too successful yet).

Hi RJ,

I'm working on the Culpeper tangle today.

Thank you for your notes on Elizabeth (Brooke) Culpeper1151. Please, as you make these helpful notes, could you add your WikiTree ID - double bracket, surname dash ID# pipe name and double bracket? and add the date after it? It is a common practice among the members recognized as currently researching a profile. Or you could add the comments in the right hand column, the Comment Box (aka "Bulletin Board"), which would automatically add the date and your ID# link.

I know I could find it in the Changes tab but it would be a great help to have those additions in the bio text box, or alternatively the comment on the bulletin board.

Again, thank you for your work on the Gateway Ancestors/Magna Carta Project.
