Found it very interesting to read of all the Leadbeaters. My Mother was Kathleen Leadbeater who was born in 1913 in East Ham London England. I have been researching both sides of my family and have found many Leadbeaters. They are mainly from London Middlesex. The family was very large and I have managed to go back to 1826 to Joseph Leadbeater living in the Parish of St.Pancras.He married twice, firstly to Sara Evans and then to Harriet Osborn. They had many children between 1848 and 1874 some of their names being Joseph,James, Mary-Ann Elizabeth Harriet Susan William (My Grandfather) and Alice. It is very tempting to branch out and trace all these ancestor but it would take me forever, so if anyone has a Leadbeater Ancestor from London, perhaps I can help them, perhaps we are distant relatives.
Good Luck to all you Leadbeaters out there.

I live in Tallahassee, Florida. My father, William Frederick Leadbeater was born in Harrow, England in 1922. He immigrated to Canada in 1946. He has a bother John and sister Joan who live in Great Yarmouth, today. His brother John is the Chief Magistrate for Norwich. His other bother Reginald lives in Deerfield Beach, Florida, where he immigrated in 1973. His half-sister Evelyn lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

dear John or "Tim"
Do you know where your Grandfather or Great Grandfather was born?Cannot see any link with my Leadbeaters at moment, but I am hoping to get some more Leadbeater information in the next few weeks and will write on the message board. We visit Great Yarmouth every week in our delivery lorries but as yet I have no connection with this lovely seaside town.
I am in possession of the 1881 census which my dear children bought me as a Christmas present so if there is anyone I can look up for you please ask.

Paula, I checked with my father who says his father's name was William Henry Leadbeater born likely in London. My father has his birth certificate in Florida (they spend the summers in Nova Scotia which is where they are at the moment). His father apparently had 6 brothers: including Frederick, Victor, Philip David and Edward.

Had a quick look on the 1881 census but if your father was born in 1922 I should think your grandfather was born after the 1881 census(just guessing) so it would be your Great Grandfather that would show up on the 1881 census. There are lots of Leadbeaters or variants of that name in 1881 so I need some more info like what is the exact date and place of birth of your grandfather.This certificate will also show his fathers name so let me know when you can and I will find out any information I can for you.

Dear Paula

Joseph Leadbeater and Sarah evans were my great great grandparents and were married on 12June 1848 in Old church st Pancras. I am a descendant of their son John Henry Leadbeater who was born on 6th september 1854. I havew no record of Sarah after that but the census records show Joseph of having children by Harriet Osborn who it appears he married only in March 1871. She was born in Bristol about 1836 and died in clerkenwell on 28th January 1903. In the 1891 census William their son is shown as a Carpenter.

Joseph's parents were John Leadbeater and Mary Leadbeater who lived at Middlesex Place according to the 1841 and 1851 census. They had five children, Lydia, Joseph, Susan, John and Mary. I have some additional information relating to Lydia, Susan, and John which you are welcome to.

I also believe that John Leadbeater ( Joseph's father)was born in Islington on 14th november 1793 to Joseph Leadbeater and his wife susannah. This john had a sister Esther who was born in February 1796.

I would be interested in swopping information with you if you are interested

kind regards

Dear Paula

Joseph Leadbeater and Sarah Evans were my great great grandparents and were married on 12th June 1848 in Old church St Pancras. I am a descendant of their son John Henry Leadbeater who was born on 6th September 1854. I have no record of Sarah after that date but the census records of 1861 onwards show Joseph having children by Harriet Osborn who it appears he married only in March 1871 when he is shown as a widower. Harriet was born in Bristol about 1836 and died in Clerkenwell on 28th January 1903. In the 1891 census William their son is shown as a Carpenter.

Joseph's parents were John Leadbeater and Mary Leadbeater who lived at Middlesex Place according to the 1841 and 1851 census. They had five children, Lydia, Joseph, Susan, John and Mary. I have some additional information relating to Lydia, Susan, and John which you are welcome to.

I also believe that John Leadbeater ( Joseph's father)was born in Islington on 14th november 1793 to Joseph Leadbeater and his wife Susannah. This John had a sister Esther who was born in February 1796. John was a whitesmith by occupation according to the 1851 census although he is shown as a coal merchant on the wedding certificates of his children Lydia and John in 1854.

The other occupation which runs through some of the early generations is compositor/printer and one of my uncles worked in this trade ubtil he retired.

I would be interested in swopping information with you if you are interested

Surnames: Leadbeater, Amos, Burnside, Westwood, Curzon and Caddick
I read your messages on the Leadbeaters. I have just received birth certificates, marriage licenses and census' for some of our Leadbeaters. Our greatgrandmother was Emma
Leadbeater born to John Leadbeater and Mary Ann (Westwood) on April 10,1865 in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England.
She married John Amos son of Charles Amos on December 23, 1883 in Dudley Worcestershire England. The census of 1881 shows that they lived at 34 Greets Green Rd.West Bromwich.
John Leadbeater was 43 and Mary Ann was 47 they had 5 children. The children were Ann 22,Emily or Emma 19, Thomas
14,another daughter that I can't read the hand writing was 1,and a another daughter Jane that was married and 26. John was a coal miner, Mary Ann a brick maker, and Emma was a breeze washer?. Does any of this match any other Leadbeaters
out there? Please e-mail me at amosautomotive@cs.com
