Name: Richard Byshop Marriage Date: 24 Oct 1620 Marriage Place: Glanvilles Wootton, Dorset, England Spouse: Dulcibel Kingman Dorset History Centre; Dorchester, England; Dorset Parish Registers; Reference: PE/GLW: RE 1/1

NOTE a merge done in 2017 may have linked her to wrong Bishop...or King...

set for a merge. Her LNAB is yet unknown. Needs to be detached / attached to correct Richard Bishop
posted by Beryl Meehan
Bishop-13547 and Unknown-248310 appear to represent the same person because: Bishop-13547 (orphaned profile) needs to be detached from incorrect Richard, someone has mistaken her LNAB which is yet "Unknown."

Information about Dulsabel was included in the G2G post, "Straightening out some Kings and Bishops, early New England immigrants"

Is everyone cool with/any objections to changing LNAB to Unknown? Also, associating her as the wife of Bishop-179?

Or, would you like me to run another question past G2G? Thank you in advance.--GeneJ
