European Aristocracy
Milo Courtenay was a member of the aristocracy in Europe.
MILON de Courtenay (-after 1138, bur Fontaine-Jean)

[m firstly ---. This first marriage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[107], but the primary source on which it is based has not yet been identified.] m [secondly] (before [1110/16]) ELISABETH de Nevers, daughter of RENAUD [II] Comte de Nevers et d'Auxerre & his first wife [Ita Raymonde] de Forez et de Lyon (before 1085-after [1120/39]) [1] Milon & his [second] wife had three children:

2. The Complete Peerage G.E.C. Eng. V, v. 3, p. 465, v. 4, p. 317
3. Visitations of Devon, Devon 2, p. 243
4. Edmondson's Baronagum Genealogicum, Eng. AM, v. 4, p. 340
5. Hist. of the Fam. Courtenay, B18A16, p. 2
6. Anderson's Royal Gen., Eng. 132, p. 621 (not reliable)
7. Memorials of Old Devonshire, Devon 18, p. 35, 47-48
8. Collins Peerage, Eng. Z-1, v. 6, p. 215, 231-38
9. Tableaux Genealogiques des Souverains, France 22, Tab. 35
 !RESEARCH NOTE: 1. The above child Reginald would be known in France as
Renaud; however, he came to England with Eleanor, Queen of Henry II of England
when she married him or when arrangements were made for the marriage (1151 or
1152). In virtually all of the sources above (except for the Complete Peerage)
Reginald the above son has been confused with his son Reginald as though they
were one and the same person. A study of the dates reveals the impossibility
of there being only one Reginald. The above child Guillaume does not marry
Matilda (Maud), daughter of Robert Fitz Edith, natural son of King Henry I of
England, but rather she is the second wife of his brother Reginald.

Respectfully: this profile has too many sources listed, which don't support the too-short a bio-- which largely lacks in-line citations. The overall effect is to make it appear to be well supported, when it's not.

In fact, the entire bio appears to be plagarized from Cawley, here:

That's not OK. For multiple reasons. Incl. the possibility he's wrong in this case; also because we are copying-and-pasting his work onto WikiTree without explaining that; and also because the in-line citation goes to the wrong member of the family group, so it's a bit hard to notice the copy and paste unless you're already familiar with Cawley's trademark syntax; and lastly, because of the way this bio is formatted, it kind of looks like we're sourcing the Cawley blockquote from Richardson (1st citation =/= 1st source.)

We also don't name the authors of some listed sources, including Richardson.

p.s. Is there a better way to write in-line citations to CENTRALLY defined sources, so we don't have 1M different WikiTree profiles EACH re-writing the name of Richardson's books, or whatever, differently, on each profile page? This is a hassle for profile writing even with merely large family groups. Considered across the universe of all gateway ancestors, or all euroaristos etc, the inefficiency is gargantuan. It is a sin of database bloat and non-standardization to over and over again write out long lists of the same sources page-wise, and do in-line citations page-wise, when that could easily be refactored onto a centralized/discretized list of canon. This is one of the few things I think gets righter than WikiTree, right now.
