Percy-44 and Percy-471 appear to represent the same person because: same name, same time frame, same location, I really do not like the beautiful pattern over the details of the profile, merge by faith

Percy-448 and Percy-741 do not represent the same person because: They appear to be brothers. One dies 1421, one is born in 1421, using the same name, if there is proof displacing that, I will merge.
