  • Visitation mentions the following Sir John, indicating that he had issue. We thank a 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
    • The SMG correspondence identifies Sir John's wife only as Alice Grey. Some web sites support the connection we make but other identify her as daughter of 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
      • 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.

      • m. (c1490) Godfrey Foljambe of Walton (b 27.03.1472, d 1541)

  • Note A. There is much confusion regarding the generation-attribution of various of the daughters of various of the John Savages of Clifton. We have tried to use dates and common sense to attribute them correctly but where there is doubt we prefer to show them a generaton earlier rather than later as otherwise people may presume an additional maternal line that turns out to be irrelevant. However, whilst some time was spent on this, more time is needed to gain full comfort on it so this is all subject to review. Any comments on this, from anyone who has studied the matter, would be welcome!
