About Margaret Leeke

1. Sir Simon not John Leeke of Cotham, Nottinghamshire b about 1375

Named John by the Visitation but the SGM correspondence mentioned below reports that this was a mistake for Simon. The SGM correspondence identifies Simons's wife as Margaret Vaux


In June 1351 the Pope granted the Abbot of Welbeck a mandate "to dispense Simon de Leyk, donsel, and Margaret de Vaux, so as to remain in the marriage which they contracted without banns, knowing that they were related in the fourth degree of kindred on both sides, first enjoining them a salutary penance, and declaring their offspring legitimate".[1]
