Research Notes

Magna Carta Project mainenance categories
  • Needs Re-review: Normally, this information would go under the Magna Carta Project section, but this profile doesn't have one (see Space:Magna Carta Project Section). ~ Noland-165 08:40, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Needs Source Check: The biography appears to be copy/paste from Lewis (ORTNCA). Information from Lewis needs to be checked against the source (his style for inline citations is to post them at the end of a prhase or sentence, which leads to misattribution). Richardson citations need to be verified and updated (see for example, WikiTree's source page for Royal Ancestry). ~ Noland-165 08:40, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
