The further back a stem goes, the more cautious I find I get. I have a Richard Green, died 1561 (and yes, baptismal records lead to him), born 1492. He seems to appear in the history books, and he did leave a will (which I need to get a friend to read for me because I can't read it very well) which indicates there was money in the family. Trouble is, I am loathe to add any further people as I don't have any real evidence other than history. Am I being too cautious? I don't want my tree to descend into ridicule.
