Leonard Crosse (III) was the son of Leonard Crosse (II) and Mary Katterne. His father died while he was an infant and it is not known if his mother remarried. He is known to have had a brother, nine years older than him. However, there were probably other siblings since their parents were married for eighteen years before their son Thomas was born. Leonard married Jane and they lived on Newgate Street in London, England. Janes maiden name is not known. It is thought that Leonard was probably a merchant. His son John Crosse was transported to the Colony of Maryland, following the Monmouth Rebellion. Records indicate that Leonard Crosse paid for Johns passage to the Colony, which probably saved him from the fate shared by many of the Rebels. Leonard Crosse died that same year. Jane remained in London, did not remarry, and died in 1694
