Is wife really Anne Percy?[edit]

In (Richardson, Douglas (2004). Plantagenet Ancestry. Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co. Inc. pp. p. 405. ISBN 0806317507.  ) lists the wife of John West merely as "Ann _____" As Richardson's book seems to be a very reliable source, this make me concerned about our article stating clearly that the wife's name is "Anne Percy." Also, when I consulted the external link, Tudor Place: John West, Governor of Virginia, it provides no documentation for its claims at all. I have emailed the Tudor Place webmaster, but have not received any response. When I proceeded to do further research, I was able to find a source for George Percy having married Anne Floyd, Anne Percy's supposed mother. (See George Percy.) However, I was unable to access reliable sources of Anne Percy actually existing. I did find some sites discussing the issue and it's lack of documentation (See Begin Your Adventure & If anyone finds documentation, actually posting it to this article would be a very great help as people are quoting this unnsourced article as authority for their family genealogies.Kenalynn (talk) 14:28, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

You are correct. I was just notified today about this misleading claim and I've just deleted it. is an unreliable source, not just on this connection, but in general. Wjhonson (talk) 03:41, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
