  There is some confusion over the next few generations. Visitation, FMG & Thoroton start with the husband of Elizabeth Leek, Visitation & Thorton supporting MGH (which provides the earlier generations) in identifying him as Richard but FMG naming him Thomas. FMG shows Thomas & Elizabeth Leek as father of the Richard who m. Lora Brookman, missing out the next 2 generations. Thoroton shows just 1 intervening generation, a Thomas who m. Elizabeth, dau of John Strelley of Woodborough, which could be confusion with the Thomas shown here (who m1. Margaret Mollineux, m2. Elizabeth Strelley). The 'main' section in the family in Visitation (1569+1614) shows the following 2 generations of Thomases but does not name their wives. We follow MGH which names their wives as shown.
