Land Records23 February 1739Zebulon Field, a Taunton husbandman, and his wife Anne Field made a 20-year lease agreement with William Leonard of Norton, cordwainer, on 23 February 1739 for a certain parcel of land meadow and upland lying on the easterly side of the Mill River in Taunton. More specifically, it was located southerly and east from the land of Ephraim Wetherell, south from Edward Adams's land, west from Abiel Williams's land and northly from Zebulon and Anne Field's fence, where it then stood, on the way to Joseph White's house. The lease agreement stated that William Leonard, or any of the others mentioned, shall not make use of, or remove, or cause it to be sold, in any way whatsoever, any hay straws, dung, stones or timber growing or lying on the land. The agreement also instructed William to let no timber or wood lie or rot useless on the land and gave William the free liberty to break and subdue the land with free liberty to use any timber and stone as necessary for building a house, barn and fence upon the land. The indenture of lease was to be in effect for 20 years, and become void on 23 February 1759. The agreement was witnessed by John Gibson and Abraham White and recorded in Bristol County on 14 January 1746/47.6
Land Records*13 July 1739Zebulon Field, yeoman, and his wife Anne Field of Taunton sold land in Taunton, Bristol County, on 13 July 1739 to William Leonard, a cordwainer, for the sum of £10. The deed was recorded 7 August 1739 and described the property as one certain tract of land in Taunton situated on the east side of the trodden road from the dwelling house of John Gibson, toward Jeremiah Wetherell's, and on the southerly side of the way called Williams Way, laid out from Zebulon and Anne Field's dwelling house toward Norton and bounded to begin at a corner stake standing 3 rods from Ebenezer Lincoln's northerly line and 4 rods from the said trodden highway and to run easterly from the beginning stake 20 rods to another corner stake, then northerly 8 rods to a stake for a corner, then westerly 20 rods to another corner stake, then southerly 8 rods to the corner first mentioned.7

(Lessor) Land Records3 December 1750 On 3 December 1750, almost eleven years after Zebulon and his first wife Anne Field made a 20-year lease agreement with William Leonard for land on the easterly side of the Mill River in Taunton, William Leonard, cordwainer of Taunton, and his wife Sarah Leonard sub-leased the property to their son James Leonard 4th "so called", also a cordwainer of Taunton. The sub-lease restated the original lease's expiration date of 23 February 1759 and described the property as a certain parcel of land meadow upland lying on the easterly side of the Mill River in Taunton and southerly and east from the land of Ephraim Wetherell, then south from Edward Adams's and west of the land of Abiel Williams, then northerly exclusive from his meadow fence where it then stood and that had been Joseph Williams'. The deed instructed that neither James Leonard nor any of the neighbors mentioned were to make use of any timber growing or lying on the land by cutting or carting it off the land in any shape or form whatsoever nor cause it to be done and included similar instructions regarding dung and stones. The deed further instructed that no timber or wood was to be cast upon the land to die or rest useless. James was, however, to have free liberty to timber and stone for fencing and building a house or barn upon the land, except that the house where William lived was to be left for his use with full liberty to pass to and from his house to cut fire wood for his own use during the time of the lease. The indenture stated that if William were to move out before the expiration of the lease agreement, then James was to improve the house. The agreement was recorded in Bristol County on 13 December 1750.9

No record of her death was found by this researcher in the Bridgewater records.2,1
Death*22 November 1722According to the Field source, she died on 22 November 1722 at age 3. Her sister, the first Susanna, died on that date and her death was recorded in Bridgewater. It's possible, of course, that the sisters died on the same day, however no record of Zobiah's death has been found.1
