HISTORICAL RECORDS OF THE LEACH 

FAMILY, TAKEN FROM PUBLIC 

AND PRIVATE RECORDS. 



The first item below is from Josiah Granville Leach, 
in a printed slip sent to different members of the family : 
Lawrence Leach, who. with his wife Elizabeth and 
sons John, Richard and Robert, came from England to 
Salem, Mass., in \(i2(j. where lie continued to live until 
his death in 1062. aped 83 years. From researches made 
I am led to believe his descendants number over 10,000. 
One of the most numerous branches of his posterity is 
that descended from his son Giles Leach, who was bom 
at Salem, Mass., and married Ann Nokes at Weymouth. 
1056, and settled in Bridgewatcr in 1664, where he became 
entitled by purchase t :> one fifty-sixth share of the thou- 
sands ot acres of land bought in 1645 of the old Indian 
chief Massasoit (King Philip's father) by Miles Standish, 
Samuel Hash and Constant South worth for the use of the 
fifty-six original proprietors. When Lawrence Leach 
was about leaving old England for New England, Gov- 
ernor John Winthrop, who had not then come to America, 
wrote from Gravesend, England, under date of April 17, 
1629. a long letter concerning the new colony to Gov- 



4 

ernor John Endicott. of Massachusetts Bay Colonv. in 
which letter lie wrote the following: ' We desire you to 
take notice of one Lawrence Leach, whom we have found 
a careful and painsful man and we doubt not he will con- 
tinue his diligence.' " 

His life in America would seem to have fully justified 
the confidence reposed in him by Governor Winthrop. 
It is recorded in one of the histories of Massachusetts, a 
sketch of him which contains the following: " Lawrence 
Leach held many important offices and the usefulness of 
his life gained respect for his memory." 

Mr. J. G. Leach says, as a matter of further interest: 
" Let me state that some years ago my cousin, William 
Sanford Leach, son of Elbridge Gerry Leach, of Boston, 
made the English ancestry of our family a matter of 
research, and it is said he traced the family back to John 
Leach, surgeon to King Edward the Third. My cousin 
died in the Union army, and the data he made has been 
lost." 

The coat of arms of the family has upon it three crowns, 
and the significance of these crowns is said to be this: 
that on one occasion while the kings of France and Scot- 
land were prisoners of King Edward, the three kings dined 
at the ho-use of John Leach and, as a token of the incident, 
on leaving King Edward handed to Leach three crowns. 
Afterwards, when the king granted him a large landed 
estate, three crowns were placed on his arms. 

The following is the history of the Leach family that 
descended from Giles Leach (son of Lawrence Leach, of 
Salem, Mass."), who settled in West Bridgewater before 



1665, married Anne Nokes, of Weymouth, 1656. She 
lived in Deacon Bass' family, Braintree. Mitchel's his- 
tory of Bridgewater says there was born to them the fol- 
lowing named children, and perhaps others:
