Enoch Leonard1,2,3

d. between 16 September 1757 and 19 October 1757
Father*John Leonard1 b. c 1645, d. b 21 Nov 1699
Mother*Sarah ______1 d. b 6 Mar 1709
Birth*Enoch Leonard was probably born in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony.4,5
(Son) Estate30 August 1701 According to the Chilton Mayflower source, in the division of his father's estate, his brother John was to receive the eldest son's share and his mother Sarah her widow's thirds. Enoch and his other siblings each received a share of the remaining. On 30 August 1701 the widow Sarah and her sons John, Joseph and Josiah signed receipts. Unfortunately, the digitized version of his probate file contained no documents outlining the division of his estate or any receipts.2,6
Marriage*12 February 1706/7He married Elizabeth Hooper, daughter of William Hooper and Susanna Shed, on 12 February 1706/7 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).7,1,3
Land Records*8 April 1708Enoch Leonard of Bridgewater sold land to his brother Josiah Leonard on 8 April 1708.7
Research Notes23 November 1720 Mitchell's Bridgewater History incorrectly, in this researcher's opinion, stated that Elizabeth (Hooper) Leonard, the widow of Enoch Leonard, married second in 1720 James Washburn Jr. who actually married another Elizabeth Leonard, daughter of Josiah and Marjoram Leonard, in Bridgewater on 23 November 1720.8
(Grantor) Land Records30 January 1723 On 30 January 1723, Josiah Leonard, Joseph Leonard and Enoch Leonard, all of Bridgewater, sold their rights to a cedar swamp to Thomas Ames.2
(Neighbor) Land Records23 November 1729Enoch Leonard was described as a neighbor, and the property as a part of his homestead, when William Leonard purchased a house and about an acre of land in Bridgewater from Ephraim Leonard on 23 November 1729.Enoch and Ephraim were 1st cousins once removed, and William's relationship to the Bridgewater Leonards, if any, has not yet been determined.9
Land Records*2 June 1731Enoch Leonard of Bridgewater, husbandman, signed a deed agreement on 2 June 1731 to sell land in Bridgewater to Richard Davenport, also of Bridgewater, a yeoman, for the sum of £250. The property was described as a certain tract of land in Bridgewater, it being a part of the homestead where Enoch then lived and containing by estimation 50 acres, more or less. The boundaries of the land began at a stake on the south side of the brook by the dam, then bounded by the brook as the brook ran about 70 rods to a stake standing by the brook, then running south 58 degrees west 52 rods to the south east corner of a ditch, then running 8 degrees west 42 rods to a white oak stump with stones about it, then south 72 degrees east 82 rods to a stone pitched in the ground, then north 10 degrees east 92 rods to a stake in the swamp, then south 58 degrees east 49 rods to a stake and stones, then north 25 degrees 12 rods to a stake and stones, then south 54 degrees east 15 rods and a half to a stake and stones, then north 16 degrees east 15 rods to a stake and stones, then running north 50 degrees west 79 rods to the bounds first mentioned. The deed further stated that Enoch was the true, sole and lawful owner of the premises sold, and was lawfully possessed of it in his own right having received the property as an "absolute estate of inheritance in fee simple" and had the full power and lawful authority to sell it. The deed was witnessed by Enoch's nephew Ephraim Leonard and Edmond Hobart on 2 June 1731 and recorded in Plymouth County on 24 October 1734.10
(Neighbor) Land Records10 November 1732 The property was described as a certain house and about one acre of land around it in Bridgewater, it being a part of the homestead of Enoch Leonard. The boundaries of the sale were described as beginning at a stake and heap of stones, then running south south west 12 rods to a stake and stones being the proper corner bounds of the said Enoch Leonard homestead, and from there north west 15 rods and a half to a stake and a heap of stones, and from there running north north west 12 rods to a stake and heap of stones, and from there to the bounds first mentioned. The deed was witnessed by William's brother-in-law Michael May and Ephraim Leonard, whose relationship to William, if any, has not been determined, on 10 November 1732, confirmed by William Leonard on 21 February 1732/33 and recorded in Plymouth County on 24 October 1734.11
CLUE? Identity*Were William and Enoch brothers? As we search for William's parents, it's of interest to note that Enoch Leonard and William Leonard both sold land in Bridgewater to their neighbor Richard Davenport about the same time. William's property consisted of a house and one acre of land located on Enoch's homestead and Enoch's property was his larger 50 acre homestead. Both deeds were recorded on 24 October 1734. Additionally, within the next few years, both William and Enoch moved away from Bridgewater with their families, although to different locations.11,10
Land Records*1737/38 In 1737/38 Enoch Leonard of Bridgewater sold "my farm or homestead on which I now live" together with all rights to lands in Bridgewater" to his first cousin Solomon Leonard.7,12
Court Action*May 1742In the Plymouth County Court Records of May 1742, Enoch Leonard of the County of Essex in the East Jerseys, yeoman, sued Richard Davenport of Bridgewater. The Mayflower source concluded that this record seems to prove that Enoch did go to New Jersey.13
Death*between 16 September 1757 and 19 October 1757He probably died in Mendum, Morris County, New Jersey, between 16 September 1757 and 19 October 1757.7
Will*19 October 1757There is a will of Enoch Leonard of Mendum, Morris County, New Jersey, signed on 16 September 1757, probated on 19 October 1757, leaving to wife Elizabeth "all my estate in New England". It names grandson John Arnold, who was not of age, and appointed Robert Arnold to be his executor. Although this is probably the will of our Enoch, it is not proved to be so.7

Enoch Leonard1

b. 25 December 1707
Father*Enoch Leonard1 d. bt 16 Sep 1757 - 19 Oct 1757
Mother*Elizabeth Hooper1 b. 8 Jul 1689
Birth*25 December 1707Enoch Leonard was born on 25 December 1707 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
Marriage*He married Abigail Perkins of Hampton, New Hampshire, daughter of Humphrey Perkins and Martha Moulton.3
Occupation*He was a cordwainer (shoemaker) in Bridgewater.4,5
Land Records*17 April 1744Enoch Leonard, cordwainer of Bridgewater and his wife Abigail signed a deed agreement on 17 April 1744 to sell land in Bridgewater to Silvanus Blossom, also of Bridgewater and a cordwainer, for the sum of £97. The property was described as a certain piece of land in Bridgewater's South Precinct, being about 20 acres of their homestead. It was bounded as follows: beginning at a stake and heap of stones, the southerly corner of Richard Davenport's land, from there running southerly about 75 poles to a stake and heap of stones to the highway, then running easterly about 42 poles to the corner post and a heap of stones, then running northerly about 53 poles by Seth Hayward's land to a red oak tree marked on two sides, and from there about 45 poles in a straight line to the bounds first mentioned. The deed further stated that Enoch had received the property as an "absolute estate of inheritance in fee simple" and had the full power and lawful authority to sell it. Silas Willis, William Lunt, Daniel Snell and Zachariah Whiten signed as witnesses and the deed was recorded in Plymouth County on 30 June 1744.6,4
(Occupation Clue) CLUE? IdentityJosiah Leonard and Enoch Leonard were first cousins and in related occupations in Bridgewater. Enoch was a shoemaker and Josiah a leather maker. As we work to identify the origins of our "Brick Wall" William Leonard, it's possible that his occupation may provide a clue. William, like Enoch, was a shoemaker in Bridgewater, and later in life in Taunton, as was his son James. Enoch and Josiah were both grandsons of John Leonard and great grandsons of Solomon Leonard, both of Bridgewater.

During the same period, however, the occupations among the Taunton Leonards often dealt with iron ore, iron making, iron working and iron refining.7,8,9,5,4,10,11,12
