Matthew-387 and Mathew-246 appear to represent the same person because: These two profiles would appear to be duplicates. Both daughters of Edmond Matthew, and both married a Courtenay and had child Catherine Courteny who married William Chappell/Chapple. Neither have adequate sources so it's difficult to assess most appropriate LNAB and dates of birth and death, though a death date of 1609 would be very unusual. Presumably the Current Last Name of Chapple on Mathew-246 is a mistake?
