Throckmorton-254 and Throckmorton-243 appear to represent the same person because: Hello! These two profiles appear to represent the same person, because they have the same parents and the same siblings. Merge if you agree.

RE: Throckmorton-254 and Throckmorton-243

You rejected a merge over a specious reason. Both birth dates are actually only years, and both of them are given as "about." Otherwise, everything else appears to be the same. Please reconsider. Respectfully, Lynden

Although it's not definitive, the 1614 date of birth listed on Throckmorton-254 is unlikely to be accurate as it would require the mother, Mary Hill, to have given birth to Elizabeth at the age of 48.

Throckmorton-254 and Throckmorton-243 are not ready to be merged because: conflicting date of birth.

Throckmorton-254 and Throckmorton-243 appear to represent the same person because: Hello! I represent the Magna Carta Project and I am interested in seeing these two profiles are investigated with regard to a merge. There is a short variance on birth dates, but father, mother, sibs appear to be all the same. They also appear as "sisters" on some profiles. Could you take a look, and if you agree they are the same, then complete the merge? Thank you.
