Thank you for all of this Amanda. It is very helpful. I am a bit disappointed that there appears to be no cause of death given (unless I just missed it). However, I think I can fairly safely assume either an illness or an accident was involved. I had wondered if he might have met with foul play.
Leftshire of course is Leicestershire. The misspelling might have been patially due to the British using an "s" that looked like an "f". "Leicester" often became "Lester" in the documents.
Again, this is really great information!!!
