There is a Coalmoor south west of Lawley.

Worthen is over the other side of Shrewsbury.

There is a Leigh not far from Worthen. Could Leehan be a variant of that?

This document also refers to Colesmore in the parish of Worthen but I can't see it on maps at the moment  http://www.familydeeds.org/SP112.php

Added - the nearest I can find is Knotmoor to the south of Leigh :-\  https://maps.nls.uk/view/101594554#zoom=4&lat=4847&lon=6604&layers=BT

Thanks to both of you. 

This one will definitely be right, he owned Lawley Manor at one stage. 
Coalmoor south west of Lawley.

I will investigate it all.

Thanks for your help.
