his estate on which Robert Bird was granted administration, May 10, 1710." Adventures of Purse and Person pg. 454

I am not sure that I agree with Mr. Smith's order of marriage since both of Letty's marriages are listed in the US and International Marriage Records 1560-1900 and it shows
Matthew Lidford as the first husband. However, Mr. Smith does explain the rather complicated relationships in the family. Sharon Thigpin Davenport

Abraham Weeks
Millicent Ledford
"Paul Goodloe states that a power of attorney was executed by Millicent (not
Mildred) Weeks that empowers Henry Goodloe to represent her in Middlesex Court "to acknowledge unto my daughter Mary Weeks and her son James, four Negro slaves....2
Oct 1703." Millicent's name was erroneously given as "Mildred" by W.G. Stanard who quoted another POA from "Mildred", widow of Abraham Weeks, to Henry Goodloe
mistakenly as "my loving son" rather than "my loving friend".

Another power-of-attorney was executed by Millicent...not MILDRED Weeks which reads, "I do hereby empower Henry Goodloe to appear for me in Middlesex Court there to
acknowledge unto my dau. Mary Weeks and her son James, four Negro slaves.....2 Oct. 1703"

Then another deed to Mary and her son James on the same day. George and Mary Goodloe DID NOT have a son named James. The absolute proof that Mary Weeks was
not Mary Goodloe is:

"Middlesex County Order 1700-1702 - "Judgment is confessed by Milliscent Weeks to the Parrish of Christ Church in the County for five hundred pounds of good tobacco
being the Fine of Mary Weeks for hir haveing a Childe unlawfully begotten and ordered to pay costs. Milliscent Weeks promises and assumes inCourt to keep the Parrish of
Christ Church in this County harmless and indemnified from the keepeing and maintaining the Childe borne of the body of Mary Weeks." (This is the "James, son of her
daughter Mary Weeks" to whom Milliscent gave slaves.)

Abraham Weeks
Millicent Ledford
"The birth/death dates for this family vary greatly. I have tried to choose dates that were well documented, but I have not personally verified them.
Allan Weeks says that Abraham Weeks "is my 9th Great Grandfather. I have been looking for his parents for years I am showing Abraham born at St. Clements Danes in
London, England in 1631. I have him being apprenticed at age 15 as of June 7th, 1646. His Father's name was Francis Weeks of Amesbury Wilts." Abraham was named by
the town of Jamestown, Va as a "Founder of Jamestown" because he was one of the original colonists and he brought three other people to live in Va.

Appears in the Lancaster County Court Orders, 1652-1655, Page 234, as collector of tythes for his district.

He is listed in The Middlesex County Militia in 1687

The Rootsweb / Worldconnect Chambers and Before Genealogy Database suggests: Abraham built the first Christ Church in Lancaster Co., Va in 1666. He is an accredited
James Town Ancestor with the James Towne Society. In Lancaster Co., Va on Oct 6, 1653 he received land for importing three people into the colony: Himself, John Barnis
and Thomas Chatton. In 1653 he is listed as attorney for suit between Thomas Bemister and Maj Thomas Curtis. In June 1654 he was elected Constable for Lancaster Co.
In 1657 he was chosen a vestryman of Lancaster parish. In 1662 he received a patent for 450 acres on the north side of the Rappahannock. He continued gathering large
amount of land in Lancaster and Middlesex counties. In 1666He became Justice of Lancaster and middlesex counties and served several terms. Warrent to him Feb 10,
1668 by Sir William Berkeley. On September 26, 1680 Thomas Deadman, Henry Griffin with 20 other persons were transported to Virginia by Abrahm Weeks and Hubb
Williams who were awarded 1091 acres back of land purchased by Henry Corbyn (Corbin) esquire, deceased. Abraham was a member for Middlesex in House of
Burgesses in 1680 and 1681.
June 30 1688 There is a deed recorded in Middlesex from Abraham Weekes, of the county of Middlesex, and Millicent his wife, conveying to Mr Henry Williamson of
Rappahannock county and Catherine his wife (daughter of said Weekes) part of a tract of land. the remainder of which had been conveyed to Francis Weekes, son of said
Abraham Weekes. The will of Abraham Weekes awas dated Jan 1691 and proved March 1691. Legatees: son Francis, Daughter Mary, Daughter Letty Lidford, Neice

plantation, first granted to the aforesaid Abraham Weekes.
Virginia Tax Records, Tithables of Lancaster County, Virginia p. 246

______________________________________________

Abraham Weeks was not md. to a Mildred, nor to a Goodloe/Goodlow. The mistake was made because individuals misread a deed for Mildred instead of Millicent.
Researchers have tried to create Weeks/Goodloe marriages for years...there were none.  The two families were neighbors and friends, but no marriages between them.

"Note: Lawyer who defended Sir Walter Raleigh when he was in trouble with Queen Elizabeth I. Both were sentenced to the Tower of London. Sr William was released when
he convinced the court that the land titles that Walter Raleigh gave him in Virginia were legal. He was released on the condition that he go to Virginia. Helped to establish
colony in Jamestown by arriving on first boat from England. His Brother John Weeks was also on that boat. Almost all Weeks in the US are descended from these two
brothers. There is a Weeks Coat of Arms awarded by James I consisting of an ermone sheild emblazoned with three red battle axes

Ryan Weeks Family Tree - Allan D. Weeks

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note:
[Robert Coles.GED]

He came to America in 1635, landing at Salem, MA and then moving to Dorchester.
Said by family tradition to have lived first in Virginia, in which case he was the son of Frances Weeks who is of record as dying in that colony in 1627.

He was one of the five persons who was with Roger Williams in the canoe when he first landed at Providence. The first record we have of Francis is contained in a
1677 affidavit of Roger Williams:

"My soul's desire was to do the natives good, and to that end, to have their language, which I afterward printed, and therefore desired not to be troubled with English company,
yet out of pity I gave leave to William Harris, then poor and
destitute, to come along in my company. I concented to John Smith, miller at Dorchester to go with me and at Smith's desire, to a poor young fellow, Francis Wickes, as also
a lad of Richard Waterman's. These are all I remember."

Not being of age, a portion of land was set off for him and held by the Proprietors until he reached legal age. When he did receive a deed, his lot was No. 35, comprising
about 5 1/2 acres in Providence, in addition to a six acre lot at a
distance from his home lot. Even though he was probably illiterate, as he signed his name by mark ("W") in public records, Francis came into a considerable portion of land
in Providence and if he had remained there, he might have become a
fairly prosperous citizen.

He married Elizabeth Luther (said to be a direct descendent of Martin Luther.), of Rhode Island, sometime after 1638. By 1642, he had left Providence. He may have left
because of religious differences caused by the change of faith of Roger Williams, who embraced the Baptist thought, but it could have also been because of the arbitrary and
intolerant attitude of the Boston hierachy, who prosecuted all "heresy" with great severity.

We believe Francis moved for a time to Manhattan, possibly Gravesend, as Francis Weekes is designated as the owner of Lot No. 12 in an early plan of the area. Several of
his children were baptised in the Reformed Dutch Church of New York in 1647, 1651 and 1652. In 1655, there is a record of Elizabeth Weekes selling her husband's property
in Gravesend under a power of attorney.

Francis and Elizabeth then moved to Hempstead, Long Island, NY,
where on March 17, 1657, he was chosen townsman. He and his wife, by reason of their "entertaining Quakers", were in 1658 heavily fined. According to published records:

"Hempstead ye April A.D. 1658. At a Court holden this present day stilo novo, Present, Mr. Richard Gilders Leeve (Gildersleeve), Mr. John Hicks, Mr. Robert Firmen, Mr.
Richard Willetts.

Forasmuch as Mary Schott, the wife of Joseph Schott, together with the wife of Francis Weekes, have, contrary to the Law of God, and the laws established in this place, not
only absented themselves from public worhips of God, but have profaned the Lord's Day by going to a conventicle or meeting in the woods, where there were two Quakers -
the one of them as named, the wife of Francis Weekes, being there, and the other being met with near the place, who, upon examination, have justified their acts, saying they
did know no transgression they had done, for they went to meet people of God - be it therefore ordered that each party shall paye for this offense twenty guilders and all costs
and charges that shall arise therefrom."

Soon thereafter, Francis and Elizabeth removed to Oyster Bay. The earliest town record of Francis is dated 1660. The first home lot was situated on South Street. Later, it
came into the possession of one of his sons. A street was opened though it, named Weeks Street, and close by is an old graveyard containing Weeks graves. Before 1673,
he had left the first home lot and settled on what became the homestead half a mile east of the village. This lad was owned by descendents of his son until it bacame the
property of John Abel Weeks, who sold it to William L. Swan, who owned it in 1922.

Francis' name appears often in the town records, as surveyor, arbitrator of land quarels, and as one of three "apoynted to use their endeavor to bie Matinecock land of the
Indians". He spent 30 years in Oyster Bay and is buried in the Weeks
plot, but no headstone marks the exact place. A copy of his will, written on June 25, 1687, is in the old book of Town Records.

Roger de Bello Beaumont
Adeliza Adeline Meulan Meullent - Heiress of Beaumon
tROGER DE BELLO MONTE married ADELINE DE MEULLANT, daughter of WALERAN and
sister and heir of HUGH, EARL OF MELLENT. They had three sons and at least one daughter. My family follows the line of the eldest son, ROBERT DE MEULAN
(1049-1118) who joined his father and younger brother Henry at Hastings. Both sons were knighted on the battlefield, though Robert was only 17 years old. He married
ISABEL, daughter of Hugh the Great, Count of Vermandois and  Valois, the younger son of Phillip, King of France. In 1077 Robert succeeded to the Earldom of Mellent
through his mother. In 1098 he was Chief Minister of William Rufus and of Henry 1 from 1103-1118. In 1107 he was created Earl of Leicester for his services to the State. He
founded 3 priories, Monks Toft in Norfolk, Spettisbury and Wareham in Dorset. Robert and Isabel had two twin sons WALERON and ROBERT, a weakling son HUGH
and others. On his death in 1118, Robert left his sons, then under age, to the guardianship of Henry I. They received the highest education of the day and visited Normandy
with their guardian. Waleron was the most powerful of the Norman chieftans and was knighted at 16. In his youth he is said to have had a reckless boldness and throughout
life was fiery, warlike and indomitable. He succeeded to the Norman estates and the Earldom of Mellent at 19 on the death of his father. He rebelled against Henry I and was
brought to England as a prisoner and confined from 1124-29 when he was pardoned and his estates restored. He and his brother were present at the death of Henry I. He
declined to hold his fiefs under Empress Matilda and went to England and supported Stephen who made him joint Lieutenant of Normandy in 1138 and Commander of the
army in 1141. He was made Comes de Wigornia in 1149. He became a Crusader to Jerusalem in 1145, but soon after (in 1150) entered into a pact with Empress Matilda
and rebelled against Henry II. He founded the Abbey of Bordesley in Worcestershire and entered the Abbey of Preaux 21 days before his death on April 9th 1166. WALLERON
married AGNES DE MONTFORT - heiress of Journey sur Marne, daughter of AMAURI, COUNT OF EVREUX. They had at least one son called ROBERT"

I love this place!!!!!! Here is what I found about Robert in a book I have entitled Earldoms in Fee:

EARLDOM of LEICESTER

Robert de Beaumont, heir of a prominent Norman Family, was with the Conqueror at Hastings and received large grants of land in Warwickshire, and to a lesser extent in the
county of Leicester and elsewhere. In the year 1081 he inherited through his mother the Comte' of Meulan (Mellent)and became generally known as Count of Meulan.
Succeeding later to his father's large inheritance in Normandy, he became one of the wealthiest vassals of the Crown, both in England and in Normandy. He took the side of
William II and later, with his brother, was prominent in securing Henry's accession. He was greatly trusted by that King. Ivo de Grandmesnil, who had been a strong supporter
of Robert of Normandy when the latter invaded England at the instigation of his partisians in the baronage, was the holder of a considerable fief in the county of Leicester and
also had a quarter interest in the revenues of the borough.Grandmesnil's confiscated Leicester interests, after peace had been made between Henry and Duke Robert, were
given in custody to Robert de Beaumont.Ivo then agreed to mortgage these interests to Robert de Beaumont provided the latter would use his influence with the King for Ivo's
rehabilitation and would in the meantime provide Ivo with funds to go on Crusade. The King was adroitly persuaded by Robert of Mellent not only to grant him Ivo's Leicester
interest (at the King's disposition as a result of Ivo's part in rebellion), but to give him also the royal interest in the rest of the Leicester borough farm. Robert is said then to
have become Earl of Leicester. There is no comtemporary record of his creation or of any use of this title, and doubt has accordingly been expressed about the existance of
his earldom at this date. (In charters Robert was described as Comte de Meulan, but never as Earl of Leicester). The possession by Robert of the earldom can, however, be
reasonably inferred from the events immediatly following his death. He died on 5 June 1118 and was buried with his ancestors at Preaux, leaving three sons, Waleran and
Robert (twins) and Hugh, who is said later to have been made Earl of Bedford. If so he was deprived almost at once. (Hugh of Bedford was the weakling of a strong family.
Promise of creation is more likely than actual girding and putting in possession. In any event it would be lost with the fief in 1141). As so frequently happened on the death of
a great tenant-in-chief during the first century after the Conquest, the Norman and french fiefs and the English fiefs were separated. The former went to the elder twin
Waleran, who was thenceforth styled Count of Meulan, while the latter went to Robert, the younger twin. Robert is found styling himself Earl of Leicester as early as 1119. He
was at that time only about fifteen years of age, so that he was either created an earl at a very tender age immediately after his father's death (which is unlikely), or was
regarded as succeeding his father in the earldom (which is probable) as well as in the English lands.

THIRD GENERATION

4. Roger de BEAUMONT was born about 1010 in "of" Pont Audemer, N, France. IGI has abt 1022. So does Roderick W Stuart, *Royalty for Commoners*, 2nd edn,
1992, p 161 (lin 220) He died in 1094. 23rd ggf of Gordon Fisher OR: Roger de BELLOMONT

"The same thing is true of Beaumont [i.e., the name "may well be Norman or at least French in origin".] The first Baron Beaumont, Henry de Beaumont, was the younger son
of Louis de Brienne, of Acre, *jure uxoris*, Vicomte de Beaumont in Maine and grandson of John de Brienne, King of Jerusalem. He flourished under Edward I and II. Whether
he was descended from the lords of Beaumont-le-Roger, near Eure (de Dellomonte) we cannot say, but there was a Roger de Beaumont recorded in the Domesday Book as
holding Sturminster Marshal in Dorset, and this Roger certainly took his name from Beaumont in Normandy. From Roger descended the Counts of Meulan, the old Earls of
Leicester, and the old Earls of Warwick."
--- Leslie Gilbert Pine, *They Came with the Conqueror, A study of the modern descendants of the Normans", London (Evans Brothers Ltd) 1954, p 106-107

"ROGER DE BEAUMONT, SIRE DE PONTEAUDEMER (Humphrey de Veulles ..., Touroude ..., Torf), born about 1010, succeeded to the family estates in Normandy, as
Sire du Ponteaudemer, Seigneur de Veulles, Pre'aux, Torville, and du Ponteaitorf, and Seigneur de Beaumont (or Bellomont), by which last name he came to be generally
described. By his marriage he greatly increased the possessions and prestige of the family, and he rose to be one of the most powerful feudal noblemen of his age in
Normandy. When William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066, Roger de Beaumont furnished sixty armed vessels for the fleet and was left in charge of the government
of Normandy when the Conqueror started on the expedition. He munificently endowed the Abbey of Pre'aux, of which late in life he became a monk; and dying in 1094 at
advanced age, he was buried in this monastery at Ponteaudemer, Normandy. (P) He married about 1040, ADELINE DE MEULLANT, daughter and eventually sole
heiress of Waleran, Comte de Meullant, a great feudal nobleman of France. She died in 1081. (P) Children .... [see under their names]." --- J Gardner Bartlett, *Newberry
Genealogy*, Boston, 1914, p 4-5 He was married to ADELINE OF MEULAN about 1040.

5. ADELINE OF MEULAN died in 1081 in living 1081. See note under husband Roger de BEAUMONT Roger de BEAUMONT and ADELINE OF MEULAN had the following
children:

Neubourg, Normandy, France. He was buried in Abbey of Preaux, Ponteaudemer, Normandy. OR: Henry de BEAUMONT (OR: de BELLOMONT)

"HENRY DE NEWBURGH, EARL OF WARWICK (Roger de Beaumont ..., Humphrey de Veulles ..., Touroude ..., Torf), born about 1045 at the castle of Newbourg in
Normandy (whence the derivation of his name), succeeded to his father's estates in Ponteaudemer etc., in Normandy, where he generally resided. He received
however from William the Conqueror grants of great estates in Warwickshire, England, where he built the famous Warwick Castle, of which in 1078 he was appointed
constable by the Conqueror; and in 1080 he was appointed Baron of the Exchequer of Normandy. About 1090 he was created Earl of Warwick by King William II.; and dying
20 June 1123, he was buried beside his father in the Abbey of Pre'aux, Poneaudemer, Normandy. He and his dscendants permanently adopted "Newburgh" as a family
surname. (P) He married about 1090, MARGARET DE PERCHE, daughter of Geoffrey II., Comte de Perche, by Beatrice his wife, daughter of Hilduin IV., Comte de Montdidier

Department Aisne in northeastern France, seat of the Varomandui, of Roman times, the surname or title de Vermandois originated. The house of Vermandois is one of the
most ancient and famous of the early French noble houses, and is descended in direct male line from the Emperor Charlemagne. The records of the counts go back to
Herbert, grandson of Bernard of Italy. From 1045 to 1083, the counts possessed also the Valois. In 1102, Raoul de Varmandois was the reigning count, probably son of
Hugh de Vermandois. Hugh the Great, Earl of Vermandois, was one of the leaders of the First Crudsade and died at Tarsus in Cilicia in 1102. (P) HUGH, son of

"His summons [to the First Crusade, by Pope Urban II beginning on 27 Nov 1095] was eagerly obeyed. From as far afield as Scotland, Denmark and Spain, men hastened to
make their vows. Some raised money for the journey by pawning their possessions and their lands. Others, expecting never to return, gave everything over to the Church. A
sufficient number of great nobles had adhered to the Crusade to give it a formidable military backing. Beside Raymond of Toulouse and Hugh of Vermandois, Robert II of
Flanders, Robert, Duke of Normandy, and the latter's brother-in-law Stephen, Count of Blois, were making preparations to set out. More remarkable was the adherence of
men devoted to the emperor Henry IV. Chief amongst these was Godfrey of Bouillon, Duke of Lower Lorraine, who took the Cross with his brothers, Eustace, Count of
Boulogne, and Baldwin. Grouped round these leaders were many of the lesser nobility and a few eminent ecclesiastics, such as the Bishop of Bayeux." --- Steven Runciman,

Torf "The Rich" De HARCOURT
Born: 928, Normandy, France
Notes: He was a great Norman feudal baron. Probably he was a grandson of one of the viking chiefs of Scandinavia who accompanied Rollo ABT 900 A.D. in the Norse
invasion of northern France where they permanently settled and gave to the country its name "Normandy". Torf possessed numerous lordships in Normandy, being Seigneur
de Torville, Torcy, Torny, Torly, du Ponteautord, etc. It has been suggested that he was a son of Bernard the Dane, the most powerful of the feudal nobles of Normandy during
the reign of Duke William I (b. 927 - d. 943) and Regent during the minority of Duke Richard I (b. 943 - d. 955); but this claim has not been proved.
