Samuel Weeks (Ahnentafel No:640 )
Leonard Weeks's surname is also seen as Weekes.
Leonard Weeks may have married an unknown daughter of Samuel Haines. Samuel Haines mentions Leonard as a son-in-law in his 1682 will. However, there is also the possibility that Leonard Weekes was a step-son and that Samuel Haines married Leonard's mother after the death of his wife Eleanor Neate. The problem is that Samuel's wife mentioned in his 1682 will is not named. If it is Eleanor still living, then the step-son theory would be false. There have been claims that Leonard Weeke's first wife was a daughter of Samuel Haines named Mary. But it has since been shown that Mary is actually Mary Redman, daughter of John Redman.
