The Leach family goes back, In
England, to the time of King Edward
III., who ruled from 1327 to 1377. Dur
ing his reign there were three visi
tations in Eugland of the dreaded
plague then called the "Black Death."
and a good physician, or surgeon, as
he was then called, was worth his
weight in gold.
There was such a surgeon in the
King's household, and his name was
John Le Leche or Leach. Perhaps,
as the first form of the name suggests,
the family came from France, for
King Edward's mother was s French
woman. Anyway, the name Leach
was derived from the leech then so
much used In medicine, and consid
ered practically a cure-all, the symbol
ism of health, and, therefore, a good
name for a physician.
Later Edward granted a large land
ed estate to John Leach, and arms
as well, and as you may see In the

There -vas no trace of tears in her

Some three hundred years later
Lawrence Leach, a direct lineal de
scendant of this surgeon to royalty,
decided to come with his wife Eliz
abeth, and his sons Robert and John,
to America. -
He went into farming and milling.
and became a planter on a large scale.
His mills were where Reverly at
present noted as President Taf t's sum

Lawrence left two sons in England
Richard and Clement. But Clement
came here ten years after his father,
and married Ann Fuller of Salem.
Robert, one of the sons who came
here with his father, was one "of the
founders of Manchester, Mass. Sev
eral of his descendants were seafar
ing men, and their roving lives led
them into adventure and excitement.
One of them, Richard, was at Carta
gena when the British took the town
In 1706; and his son Benjamin was
at Lisbon when the great earthquake
of 1745 killed about 40.000 persons.
Benjamin's son Ezra was In the army,
and then a lieutenant In the navy In
the revolutionary war.
Lawrence had another son, Giles,
born after his parents reached this
country. It is estimated that he has
descendants to the number of 10,000
Giles was born at Salem. He mar
ried Ann Xokes of Weymouth, and in
1664 settled at Bridgewater. There
he purchased one of the 46 shares of

In New Jersey, and of it Joslah Gran
ville Leach, lawyer and genealogist,
who first suggested that June 14 be
set aside as "Flag Day," is the most
noted member to-day.
There were a few other early
Leaches in this country, but most of
the great family here is sprung from
the single forefather, Lawrence. The
favorite Christian names among the
Leaches have been Hanna, Susanna.
Xokes, Joseph, Giles, Ann, Sarah and
David. The only Leach registered as
an officer of the Continental army in
the revolution is Simon, of Massachu
setts, who was a first lieutenant, but
other Leaches served as privates.
One of the most noted Leaches on
this continent In recent years was
the late William Turnbull Leach, of
Canada. He was born at Berwick-on-Tweed,
Scotland, in 1805. He was or
dained a Presbyterian minister, and
later joined the Church of England,
and was sent to Montreal, where he
became archdeacon. Not only was he
an eminent churchman, but he was al

The Jenks family in America came
from England; but the name came
from Wales, so probably the first
Jenkses in England came also from
that country. Jenks is one of the

from John and is the welsh form for

John has been a favorite name with
English speaking peoples, as well as
with all the rest of the world and
from time immemorial there have
! been so many Johns that it has been
necessary to qualify them in some
way to distinguish them from each
, other. The many kings who bore the
name of John were surnamed the
Fearless, "the Bold." "the Constant."
and so forth, according to their char
acteristics or appearance. And so It
became necessary to give the Johns
among the ordinary run of humanity
their names. Tho little ones called

Just when the Jcnckcs or Jenks
family was established in England no
body knows. Joseph Jenckes. who
was born In 1H02. established the
family on this continent; but not very
much is known of him before he came
to America. He lived at Hammer
smith, not very far from London and
when he was 41 years old he took a
ship to Massachusetts. This was In
1G43; two years later he is first heard
of at Lynn, working as a blacksmith
in the iron works there.
Joseph was married before he left
England and had several children.
The descendants of these children re
tained the spelling of the name which
Joseph himself preferred Jenckes.
They settled In Rhode Island, where
they are still flourishing. So really
the Jenckes family and the Jenks
family in the United States are de
scended from the same ancestor and
are only two branches of the same
Joseph was married a second time
and when he and his wife. Elizabeth,
died they left five children: Deborah,
William. Samuel. John and Daniel.
These children spelled their name
Jenks. They all married and had
children and all became valued and
respected citizens in the regions
where they settled down.
Daniel, the youngest son, was the
best known of the Jenks of his generation.
John of the third generation held a '
captain's commission in the militia.
He was the son of Joseph's son John ; ,
he was thrice married and was
blessed with 19 children. One of
these many children was named Sam
uel and was born In 1732. Samuel
lived at different times at Lynn. New
ton. Boston. Medford and Cambridge.
Samuel's son William, who was born
at Newton. Mass., and educated at
Harvard college, became a minister.
