Re Disputed Mother - Hunt's TAG article DOES NOT suggest that his mother was named Catherine Bucke. It states that her name was Katherine (which was the name of father Kenelm's widow as established by his estate papers), but suggests no maiden name. The article suggests that Kenelm's MOTHER was a Bucke (Mary Bucke)

Unknown-381462 and Winslow-4 appear to represent the same person because: This looks like a clear duplicate though the death dates are a few months apart (but one of the profiles is unsourced and may be inaccurate).
The last name "Unknown" is obvioulsy an error, this person is a Winslow.
