I'm rather curious about this myself, particularly the issue of Richard's parentage. I've seen the references to Richard Leech's (b. c. 1551) parents as Edward Lewis and Margaret Jones--does anyone know where this comes from? Any chance it's indeed the case? The information I've seen seems to indicate that Edward and Margaret were Welsh, whereas Richard was from Leigh in Lancashire, if I'm not mistaken. I've also heard that Edward may have had a son Richard Lewis, born early in 1552 in Penarth, Wales--could this be the source of the correspondence, and is it by any chance legit?
