    Biographical Information Based upon his personal research Walter Weeks makes the following observations about who Georges father may have been:

    There was a William Wyke of Whimple, Devon who left a will 9 Feb. 1611; pr. 13 April 1611 in which he names a cousin William Weekes of Woodbury and this William's 3 children. George, John and Agnes. Wyke also mentions an unnamed brother, the brother's son John Weekes who had children.; a servant/cousin Thomas Weekes, a servant/cousin Johanne Weekes, God children., and 6 other servants. The will spells the last names as I have written them Wyke and Weekes even though they are related. William Wyke leaves 20a of land to William Weekes' son George. George Weekes, batchelor, sells this same 20a in east and west of Beathaye to a Michael Wright of Broadhembury in 1620. Whether this is our George is subject to debate but since he sells this land in 1620 one could assume that he came of age which places him at the right age to marry Jane Clapp whose birthday has been portrayed as 1597 to 1604.

    We also know that George leases a cottage and land 30 Sept. 1630 from a John Willoughby in Seaton Parish aka Beer/Seaton today. We also know that in the same year a John Weekes, shipwright leases a cottage and land in Seaton as well, could this be George's brother. John mentioned in the will? 20 Jan. 1633/4 George surrenders a lease of land and cottages in Seaton? and is called a Yeoman. In 1670 there is an Administration of John Weekes of Seaton filed.
