I'm not sure about the wisdom of adding Wiki links to the names of all the directors of the Plymouth Company. Few of these individuals are notable (probably most were just businessmen or investors) and unlikely to be worth a Wiki entry of their own; most of the links that aren't red lead to wrong people anyway.Grimhim 10:13, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

There are various articles available for the likes of Lords Eliot and Devon, but it is not clear which particular Lord was relevant. I thought that by adding the wikilinks someone with relavant knowledge would be able to disambiguate the links. It would be very interesting for readers to know the identity of these people our streets are named after. A.J.Chesswas 20:15, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Pending any further information on these individuals, I have removed the wiki links that directed to wrong people in an effort to reduce confusion. Grimhim 10:08, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
