According to Simon Payling's *Political Society in Lancastrian England: The Greater Gentry of Nottinghamshire* (1991), Simon Leek (d. 1420s) of Leake and Cotham, Notts., was married to Joan Talbot, daughter of Sir John Talbot of Swannington. Payling indicates that Simon Leek and Joan Talbot were married ca. 1405.
