Merging shapes within a feature

Hi all,

I have a polygon shapefile with 1800 records. I want to slim this down by merging together records with either:

a) duplicate/matching area sizes in the Area field

or

b) matching first 6 letters of a reference ID field.

So below, the 4 'Armes Court' shapes would combine into one and same with the 'Avon Court' shapes etc etc...

 

There are too many records to go manually merging them togther.

Thanks.

 

also, why can't i publish this question in a general 'GIS' location? When I click browse places, all the cateogories are really specific. I've had to choose python as perhaps the solution to my question is python...? who knows...
