LEESON family tree
« on: Sunday 16 August 20 21:26 BST (UK) »
Hi all,
I'm doing my paternal family tree but hit abit of a block.
I'm looking for any information for the following:
Stephen henry leeson born 1891 in mansfield, notts, married to emily coleman born 1893 possibly in eckington,derby.
Stephen's father was Henry leeson born in 1868 also in mansfield and married ann Pinder born 1864. Henry's siblings were:
Arthur. born 1879
Sarah
Ellen
Clara
Lucy
Henry's parents were also henry leeson born 1842 mansfield and married jane Quinton born 1844 in mansfield and died in 1901. They lived at 41a stockwell gate mansfield.
Henry's parents were william leeson born 1806 in mansfield and died 1870 in the workhouse, he married sarah atkinson.
His siblings were:
Mary ann. Born 1805
Elizabeth. Born 1809
John. Born 1800
Martha. Born 1808.

I'm also looking for any information regarding Mordecai Leeson born 1770 in southwell and died 1811. I have reason to believe he could possibly have been the landlord of the greyhound inn in mansfield? He married mary Clarke born 1778.

I'm looking for any additional information on any of these people/grave sites/pictures/building photographs

Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much for your help.
That information is really helpful.
I did have information that mordecai was the landlord at the greyhound inn but that's as far as I got with him.
Thank you again  :)
