Wikitree guidelines... Use their conventions not ours. The more I look at this, the more convinced I am that the correct (their convention) is Bristow. All the references in the town and colony records use Bristow or occasionally Bristowe. 13 of the 14 children were born with the spelling Bristow. His marriage to Lydia was Bristole and the birth of Rebecca was Briftoll. Neither of which is the spelling that we're using. All these LNAB's should be changed to Bristow. I'm going to change my personal database to reflect this. Objections to my changing this?
