There must be some questions raised about her children with Geoffrey Fenton, as the dates don't match up. If she was widowed from Hugh Brady in 1685 then the earliest she could have married Geoffrey Fenton was after 1585 (the wikipedia entry says June 1585). However the children John Fenton is said to be born in 1560, Catherine in 1565 (both while she was still married to Hugh Brady), and William in 1602 (when she would have been 59).

I changed the birth dates of the children William and Catherine to make them compatible (ie after 1585) since there was no source evidence for the earlier dates anyway, and a note that some of the imported biographical info was unclear.

Weston-1314 and Weston-7 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents, spouse, same children although I think that Catherine is different since she has a different spouse.
