      All Baptism & Marriage entries were recorded at St. Nicholas, Leatherhead,
                                                 unless otherwise specified.

John Lucas [Snr.] of Leatherhead was born before 1665.  There are several hypotheses relating to his possible ancestry.
The most favoured is the baptism of John Lucas at St. Nicholas, Leatherhead 27th Oct.1756 recorded 'son of John'.  This entry would 
make him aged around eighty-two at his death. This entry is also believed synonymous with the marriage of John Lucas to 
Elizabeth Parkes at Fetcham [1.4 m S of  Leatherhead] on the 15th April 1655. No further baptisms appear to be recorded for the couple.      
Also see Lucas Family of Mickleham 2m South of Leatherhead 
and some very early fragmented records at St. Nicholas at Leatherhead.
 
John Lucas was a Wheelwright in Leatherhead and practiced his Trade from a Shop and Yard in the Township.  
He recorded nine children at St. Nicholas of whom six were sons.

There were two other Parallel Lucas Families resident at Leatherhead during this era Andrew Lucas [1669-1740],
a Labourer and Joseph Lucas [1670-1748] who married heiress Catherine Goddard.  
There is no concrete evidence to date to suggest the three Families were directly connected.

John Lucas snr or his son was mentioned in a Document recorded at the County Court at Guildford, which appears
to be related to a former Deposition.

The Letter [on the other side of the page] is addressed to; To Robert Corbett Esq. at St. Margaret Hill, Southwark. It has several sums of money written on the left hand corner added & totaling 24.4.0.
Notes;
Michaelmas Sessions
commenced in October and ended around 15th December. As George Page gives the date of the Hearing as the last day and the considering the urgency of his plea would indicate the date of this document would be soon after the 15th December 1726.
Robert Corbett Esq.
was the Receiver General for the County of Surrey. His Death Notice was published in 'The Gentleman's' Magazine' as '25th December 1742'.
George Page
is considered to be the same George baptised at Leatherhead 29th March 1673 the son of George. He had several issue baptised at Leatherhead between 1701-1715. George was aged around fifty-three at the date of the letter. There were two 'George Page' individuals at Leatherhead at this time and two burials i.e. George Page recorded as 'senior' 2nd August 1726 & George Page 29th August 1742 estimated aged sixty-nine.
Buck Page: A barely legible entry for 'Buck' Page son of George baptised at Leatherhead 7th May 1681.
John Lucas senior or his son John are the most likely candidates for this document. The former would have been aged around sixty at this time and the latter aged it may have been his son John thirty seven.

Transcribed from a Copy of the Original by Site Author Judy Adams.
Transcriber's Notes:
- The Bulk of the Testator's Estate was likely in the Stock and tools etc. within his shop. 
- He does not mention a cottage or residence. 
- His cash assets were around £18, and the subsequent profit from the running of his shop to provide the 4s per week to his Widow. 
- The dating of the Will i.e. 4th April 1738 and the Administration granted on the 5th February 1738 is impossible.
   The anomaly was undoubtedly an error in the Year Date during the usual process in Court of making Copy of the Will 
   when it was originally Published.
   The date of signing would more likely have been the 4th April 1737.  The Administration date would be correct in that it is 
   consistent with the burial of John Lucas at St. Nicholas, Leatherhead recorded 'Buried 4th February 1738 John Lucas Snr'.

Note:           There was a Will of Thomas Skeet, Yeoman, of Effingham dated 6th October 1727, Proved 18th December 1727
                     He mentions land at Leatherhead and also James Lucas and his children 'Miss Ann Lucas, James Lucas jnr; 
                     John Lucas and 'Miss Mary Lucas'. Also his kinsman Richard Skeet. 
                     The names of the Lucas beneficiaries are consistent with the family of James [above] father John Lucas snr [c.1664-1739]
                     of Leatherhead and his children. It may also explain the reason for John's son James Lucas' move to Effingham if the 
                     Lucas Family may have had maternal family there.

                                                                                            [1701-bef. 1738]
                                                                                 Possible Spouse: Varney

Elizabeth was baptised at St. Nicholas, Leatherhead 22nd April 1701, recorded 'daughter of John'

Elizabeth was deceased by this time - not mentioned in her father's Will.
Carol would then be her only surviving child.

                    - Baptism not found - assumed the daughter of Elizabeth Lucas the daughter of John Lucas Snr of Leatherhead.
                    - Carol is calculated born between 1732-1737. [based on the birth of her youngest child and other contingencies]
                    - Caroline Varney married John Chapman on the 30th June 1761 at Ashtead Surrey [1m of Leatherhead].
                    - Caroline Chapman [nee Varney] was buried at Ashtead 14th April 1769 recorded 'w'. 
                    - Issue;

                                               John is not mentioned in any subsequent family documents and no issue is implied. 
                               Child 2:  Sarah Chapman baptized 9th August 1767 at Ashtead
                                               Sarah was a legatee with several other family members in the Will of John Lucass in 1797,

                                               then upon her decease her legacy would fall to other named surviving family members. 
                                               At this point Sarah would have been aged thirty-five.  No marriage or burial found to date.

                                                                                                     [1703-1785]
