Thanks Eric. I don’t know why I adopt some of these distant ancestors when I know nothing about them (and now WikiTree says Elizabeth isn’t even a lineal ancestor, so I have no idea why I adopted her!).

Also... maybe I haven’t had enough coffee, but I can’t figure out quite what you’re saying (should she be merged with Eure-89? What about son Ralph Bulmer? etc.)... Can I impose? I’ve orphaned https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Eure-12 - would you please correct her relationships?

Thanks SO MUCH for your help, and for all you do for WikiTree!

Cheers, Liz

Hello Liz

This is the wife of James Strangeways and not Elizabeth Eure-89. This Elizabeth was betrothed quite young as the date of May 14, 1431 is a marriage contract date and would have married at a much later date. I have put the records of Durham University in the bio which clearly show this is the correct Elizabeth Eure.
