There are several branches of Leake's and I have started a Leake One Name Study in hopes of exploring the surname's origins as well as finding common ancestors. I invite others who are also researching the Leake Family to join me. 

I've collected information and published references on several Leake/Leak families in my search and I will gladly share this info. 

Please let me know if you would like to join other researchers interested in the origins and history of this remarkable family.

The late Barbara Ellen Tucker Harrell (Mrs. John Kenneth Harrell) wrote a book which tells of her (and my) Leak ancestors:
"The McAfee Family, et al.: A Family History, and the related families of: Anderson, Beuford, Casey, Coats, Green, Langston, Leak, McVay, Martin, Neill, Roe, Tucker, Walker, Watson, West, Wilkie, Wright" by Barbara Ellen Tucker Harrell, Bandera Printing Company, Bandera, Texas 78003, 1983.
Ms. Harrell was at times a national officer of the DAR.

Another group of Leaks, perhaps related to these, perhaps not, is described in the book KINFOLKS by Harllee and in the book Old Halls, Manors and Families of Derbyshire, Vol. III: The Scarsdale Hundred by "J.T." The Leak family held the estate of Sutton in Scarsdale for 333 years.

Maybe you already know these things.
