Notes: Submitter would prefer <Dunstana> but we were unable to find documentation for that form, the closest we found was the above I-batch which we are hoping will be found acceptable.

Also consider, <Joyes Denstanes>, if the above doesn't pan out. Batch M03929-3

Submitter originally offered <Dunstana> as a feminization of <Dunstan> but it was explained via Withycombe that while it might have been recorded in Latin records with an <a>, the given name would still be <Dunstan>.
