Hi! I've connected Nicholas Ridgely to his parents here as he's mentioned in the will and you've given his birthdate here. However, a birth of 12 Feb 1693 or 1694 are both within nine months of Elizabeth's birth. How shall we proceed?

Ridgley-98 and Ridgely-97 are not ready to be merged because: I am still working on this lineage and have a couple of errors that need to be fixed. Will look at it as I have time. Contact me if you have any information that would be of interest to improve/correct the Ridgley/Ridgely line (Note: Last name spelling varies between generations and research shows either one.

Ridgley-98 and Ridgely-97 appear to represent the same person because: Both people have the same name, same date (month and year) and place of birth, same date and place of death. Both have a father named Henry and brother named Charles. Need to determine if last name is spelled Ridgley or Ridgely.
