GENEALOGICAL NOTE: Mary Littleton was given by Wise (7:41) as the daughter of Nathaniel Littleton and Ann Southey. Littleton had come to Virginia in 1635. Wise listed Nathaniel as one of the eight sons of Sir Edward Littleton, but listed no daughters of Sir Edward. Another source (29) says Sir Edward and his wife Mary left eight sons (of whom Nathaniel was one) and five daughters (of whom Mary was one). The Littleton line runs from ?Sir Thomas Lyttleton, or Littleton, Knight of the Bath, dec?d August 1481, author of Littleton?s Tenures . . .? (32-62) (33) (34).[3]

The information you have is wrong; his wife was not a Littleton. And the merge was necessary because you named her as the daughter of Edward Littleton and Mary Walter. Mary Littleton, the daughter of Edward Littleton and Mary Walter, was provably married to Gilbert Jones.

Before this exchange becomes any more contentious, I am simply going to restore what I had for the wife and children of Edmond Scarborough, the information I have says his wife's surname was Littleton, I am going to leave her with no parents, for the time being, that can be corrected at any time.

While merges are necessary data should never be manipulated and changed to that end. Differences should be discussed and considered, not deleted and erased.

Except we have no evidence of that. The only Mary Littleton we have evidence of is the one who married Gilbert Jones and never came to Virginia. There is no evidence that Edmund Scarburgh's wife was a Littleton. In the absence of such evidence, she should have the surname removed (there's already a "Mary" as wife to Edmund Scarburgh, although her name probably wasn't Charlton, either).

Let's just consider something totally crazy, there are TWO Mary Littletons, unrelated, one married Gilbert Jones, and the other Edmond Scarborough, and move on.

No, this Mary Littleton's father is not Nathaniel Littleton. Nathaniel Littleton and Ann Southey weren't married until 1643 (she was referred to as Harmar in June and Littleton in October, so she married Nathaniel Littleton between those dates); Edmund Scarburgh was married to Mary (surname unknown) by 1639. There is no evidence that Nathaniel Littleton had any other wife. And posting a link to an inaccurate tree that states an impossibility does not prove anything.

This Mary Littleton's father is thought to be Nathaniel, brother of Edward, still looking for who her mother may have been, there is some evidence that she was married to Gilbert Jones, and also to Edmond Scarborough, she did immigrate to Virginia in 1640, as the wife of Edmond Scarborough, she did not die in England in 1649, in 1649 she was in Accomac, Accomack County, Virginia Colony, giving birth to 7th child with Edmund, Henry.

This references both marriages but does not site Nathaniel as her father.

Littleton-489 and Littleton-58 do not represent the same person because: They are not the same person, data for Littleton-58 changed and manipulated to match Littleton-458, 8 year difference in birth years, 42 year difference and the distance of the Atlantic Ocean in the deaths.

Littleton-489 and Littleton-58 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents and other details; Mary, daughter of Sir Edward Littleton and Mary Walter, married Gilbert Jones; they had no other daughter named Mary.
