Info on Burleigh of Suffolk or Norfolk, England

I am looking for information on a Burleigh family of Weybread and Marlesford, Suffolk, England. One, a Francis Burleigh was listed along with a number of members of the Mean family in a book entitled "The Wills of Weybread."
I come from a family of Burleighs that seem to have a Samuel or a Francis, or both in every generation. This family from Weybread did also. Information from an old family bible indicates that previous generations in my family were Samuel and Francis Burleigh, but no place names were indicated. The last concrete connection I have to my family is a Samuel Burleigh(shoemaker) who died in East Dereham, Norfolk in 1820 at age 56 which indicated he was born in 1764, I know not where. The Suffolk Burleighs seem to have disappeared from the Marlesford, Weybread, Fressingfield area about 1750 or 1760. I am hoping that someone doing research on the Mean family may have noticed these Burleigh names at the same places since they came from the same area to begin with. It would be really helpful. I haven't a clue where to look. Researching other towns nearby has been unsuccessful at this point, but I am continueing to search.
