Just a heads up on a merge. I plan to merge this profile Sherburne-18 into Sherburne-10 after temp remoming the PPP protection for Sherburne-18. Once the merge is completed the profile will be under Sherburne-10, the lower numbered profile. No documentation, sources or other details will be lost. Sherburne-10 contains no contradictor information and the doc from Sherburne-18 will be retained in it's entirety. The only thing that may need to be updated is links to this profile in Project pages. Once the merge has been completed the profile will again be PPP

If someone has an objection to this merge taking place please express your concerns here.

There is an unmerged match that has been sitting unaddressed since 2015. These profiles do appear to be duplicates and should be merged.

Hello PMs! Wanted to let you know that I'll be working on this profile as part of Peter Worden's Magna Carta Trail on behalf of the Magna Carta Project. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. You might also be interested in this discussion on G2G: Do we accept the evidence for John de Mowbray as father of Christiana (__) de Plumpton? as it relates to some of his claimed lineages. (Don't worry, he's still a legit Gateway!) :)

Married Richard de Bayley of Stonyhurst in 1377. Their son Richard changed his name from de Bayley to Richard Sherburne, his mother's maiden name as at that time the Sherburnes were very rich & powerful. So he became the First Richard of Stonyhurst. But for that change we would be known as Bayleys.
