Thanks again, Will. Obviously, as John Higgins, I believe,
if I recall correctly, pointed out, that "b.c.1458" date for
Alice Middleton came via *AF* and it took me awhile to
solve the conundrum he presented. I am a naif when it
comes to stepping into the comfort zone of medieval
scholars and placed too much trust in the *AF* dates!
So: agreed. What I am learning from citations and dating
and placing on *gen-medieval* is that wills and chancery-
type record dates are quite reliable: I will attempt to
extract those from the NEHGSR articles. Sorry about
the faux pas. I leave it for others to clean up the *AF*
dating mess: despite their disclaimers.

The idea that Alice was b c 1458, that she was born in Wakefield, and that she m 1490 should all
be discarded. Exact statements like these need exact citations, stated and quoted in the text.
In fact 1462 is about the minimus date on which Alice could be born, and we have nothing, so
far, to my knowledge, that gives her any maximus, excepting that her husband has an IPM 28 Aug
10H8 and they evidently had six children as a couple.
That's not enough to pin her to such an exact date as 1458. Her father Peter was "of Stokeld"
so I see no reason to expect her to be born at Wakefield
