Bridgewater

Son of Solomon and Mary Leonard. From the Leonard Genealogy by Manning Leonard:
He married Sarah Chandler, daughter of Roger chandler in 1670. He seems to have less migratory spirit than his brothers possessed, for all his life, excepting a few years of his childhood, was spent in Bridgewater. He aquired more general knowledge than any other member of the family and held positions of more prominence in the town. He was evidently intelligent and much respected, often employed in fixing boundries of grants of lands, divisions, etc. He died in the year 1699, leaving to his widow, five sons and one daughter-all of age but the latter- a large tract of valuable land extending into what is now the beautiful village of Bridgewater. A partition of his estate was made by Elihu Brett, Samuel Edson, David Perkins, John Washburn and Capt. Josiah Edson, Aug 30, 1701: which is recorded in Probate Records, Plymouth, Book 1, page 360.
