Does anyone have any good sources for information on Richard's parents? There seems to be some conflicting information about his mother.

If no one has a good source for his parentage, should we remove them?

There apparently is ZERO good information on Richard Sears prior to his settling in Massachusetts in the 1630s.

His "ancestry" was extensively faked up by one of the most notorious genealogical fraudsters of the 19th century, possibly of all time - Horatio Gates Somerby.

I agree. It's a pile of hokum and was incisively debunked in 1890. The errors are still out there though.
