Visitation starts with 2 sons of an unnamed Leigh, as we do. Commoners indicates that Barnabas was descended from Sir John Leigh (m. Mary, dau/heir of John Backet) who it identifies as "ancestor of the Leighs of Northcourt, and Appuldercombe, who were connected with the Leighs, of Cheshire, and held large estates in the counties of Somerset, Kent, and Surrey."
