Hi Richard, you have proposed a merge between Emily Charlotte Stafford-Jerningham-1 and Jerningham-23 with a comment that the LNAB should be Jerningham, but The Complete Peerage, Vol. 12(1), p. 196 states that the name was officially changed by Royal Licence to Stafford-Jerningham 5 Oct 1826, which was before she was born. Just wondering if you have other information to suggest her name should be Jerningham?
