Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Surname: This database uses Melford. The apparent misspelling Wilford is found in "Genealogical Gleanings in Great Britain." [periodical-genealogical-gleanings-in-gb-1913]

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]

FOLLOWUP

Mary is implied to be the youngest child of Thomas Melford in "Samuel Levis, Quaker Immigrant to Pennsylvania." However, she was not mentioned in his will. [periodical-samuel-levis-quaker-immigrant-1999]
