Here is what I have re: a tanner named Weeks with wife Marie/Mary and dau. Ann.
John Weeks who was supposedly b. 1600 arrived in MA in 1637 aboard the Hopewell with a wife Mary/Marie and infant dau. Ann/Hannah. This John was prob. the s/o Robert Weeks and Sarah Enderlay. John's supposed bros. are Wm. and Robert both of whom were prominent in MA.
According to what I have found which is far from proven, John and Mary/Marie had the following chn:
Hannah/Ann b. 1636 m. Wm. Burton
Mary m. Francis Gisboine
Elizabeth Weeks m. Richard Townsend
John Weeks m. Rose Townsend
The Townsends were related to the Weeks of NY, Oyster Bay so there was a connection between the NY Weeks and the MA, RI and CN Weeks'.
There was a Joseph Weeks in VA and who signed a will of Roger Bagnall in IofW, VA in 1647. When or how he arrived, I don't know, but he is the Joseph Weeks/Wickes who migrated to Kent Island, MD in 1650 and became a justice and large land owner along with the Hynson/Hinson Family.
Hope this may shed some light on your question.
