update: removed John Locke as her husband and Thomas Locke as her son (July 21, 2015)

Lewis has birth as 1398 & only le Despenser & Percy as husbands. Percy died 1455. Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry shows only le Despenser & Percy as her husbands (p 249).

Only place I could find that she married John Locke was in Wikipedia's sidebar for her - not in the article, just the sidebar. And no references or sources for either.

So... unless anyone objects (and/or provides a source), I'm going to disconnect John Locke as husband #3.

Neville-1988 and Neville-49 appear to represent the same person because: birth years differ - 1407 is marked with "Citation needed" in text for Neville-49 & Neville-1988's 1398 has no citation. However, these are duplicate profiles that should be merged (both married to Henry Percy, attached profiles for dads are in a proposed merge & their mom's the same). Thanks!

Neville-1861 and Neville-49 appear to represent the same person because: I just merged duplicate profiles for son Ralph. These profiles should be merged too. Thanks!
