Ethel Lega-Weekes

Prepared by Michael Steer

In this paper, the author links her family, via the Freemans, to William Brewster, Ruling Elder of the Mayflower. Ethel Clelia Lega-Weekes (abt 1864-1949) was a Devon antiquary, local historian and prolific author. Much of her work focussed on the South Tawton area and on Exeter. Many of her published articles may be accessed at the Devon Records Office and the Devon Heritage Centre. Perhaps her best known papers are her study of the topography of Exeter Cathedral, and her detailed study of the Weekes family and their neighbours at North Wyke, in South Tawton.
