Alan- There was a Margery Weekes who married a Robert Follett abt. 1600 in Devon, England. One distinguished branch of the Folletts (Folliott) went to N. Ireland about that time. One person had the theory that some of their (under-tenants I believe they were called) went with them. The Stronge family is a good example. Sir Henry Folliott of Worcester, England became Baron Folliott of Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal on 22 Jan. 1619. I believe some of the family was in Antrim also. Perhaps a Weekes came with them. This may be a total long-shot, but as we know in genealogy any little clue may be the big breakthrough.
