Shouldn't the Daily Telegraph know better?

It seems that Megan Markle is of Yorkshire stock - baby Martha emigrated with her family in 1869. According to the DT:

'Martha is a direct descendant of Ms Markle's father Thomas, a lighting director' shock

Whatever happened to sub-editors?
The DT is littered with spelling, grammatical and simple factual errors.

Is that online?
My paper version states, Martha is a direct ancester of Thomas , Ms Markle' s father, a lighting director.

Yes, annsixty on-line.

I thought it would be corrected by now but just checked and Martha is still a descendent of Megan's father!

Black marks then to whoever puts the copy on.

Who cares, ok just spent 2 hours filling in some very complicated forms online in French, so neither care who Martha was or who she is related to.

The worst I saw today was an article which started with:
Student Rapist, then his name, followed by the offence.
