It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Find your roots!

Leeke 1: Leeke of Cotham, Leke of Scarsdale, Leake /Leeke / Leke of Sutton
BE1883 & BEB1841, which provide the same information about this family, identify this as a "very ancient family in those parts", referring to Derbyshire. TCP reports that a "very elaborate pedigree of Leeke was entered 4 D. xiv, pp. 89-103 in 1717 at the Coll. of Arms". The information on the earlier generations of this family still has to be confirmed.
Sir John Leeke, lord of Cotham b about 1330

m Richard Willoughby dsp 1471
Visitation mentions the following Sir John, indicating that he had issue. We thank a site visitor DS, 28.01.09 for drawing the following to our attention. It comes from newsgroup correspondence within soc.genealogy.medieval SGM which notes that some sources suggest apparently wrongly that the following John was son of a Ralph.
ii. Sir John Leek or Leake of Sutton, Derbyshire b about 1430
The SMG correspondence identifies Sir John's wife only as Alice Grey. Some web sites support the connection we make but others identify her as daughter of a John Grey of Unstone Ounston or Ownston. The connection should be viewed as somewhat speculative.
m Alice Grey
a. William Leek or Leake of Langford b about 1460
m Katherine Chaworth
The SMG correspondence follows their son Thomas, identified as probably the 2nd son. Various web sites show their elder/eldest son as the following John and provide the connection to Sir Francis shown at the continuation point.
