Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Marriage Date (Humphrey Need, Mary Melford): This source uses 15 May 1586. "Genealogical Gleanings in Great Britain" gives the date as 11 May 1686. The year is clearly a misprint since Humphrey's will was proved in 1591. The reason for the difference in days is unknown but another potential misprint. [periodical-genealogical-gleanings-in-gb-1913]

Social Rank: This database uses husbandman as his highest social rank. "Genealogical Cleanings in Great Britain" notes that Humphrey attained the social rank of yeoman, a rank just above that of husbandman. [periodical-genealogical-gleanings-in-gb-1913]

FOLLOWUP

Humphrey's parents were William and Agnes (_____) Need. William held the social rank of husbandman. Agnes' will was dated 19 May 1588 and proved 14 Oct 1588. [book-plantagenet-ancestry-2004, periodical-samuel-levis-quaker-immigrant-1999]
