Death of Charles Land
Unknown. Most likely in Leeds.
Death of Elizabeth Dunford Land
Unknown. Most likely in Leeds.
According to the 1906 Ordnance Survey Map of South Leeds, Land Court and Land Court Mill (Mungo) were located just south of the River Aire in the middle of the triangle formed by Water Lane, Meadow Lane, and Great Wilson Street. Land's Court is no longer there. The only known address for Charles Land and Elizabeth Dunford in Leeds was on St James Street in Central Leeds. However, their son, Charles Lewis, was in Holbeck by 1820 when their daughter Elizabeth was born. In 1826, at the birth of their son, James, their address was "Water Lane". By 1833 they were living in Brewery Field, Holbeck. I do not know if there is any connection between Charles Lewis Land and the fact that there was a Land's Court in Holbeck. I did not find anyone listed in Land's Court in the 1841 census. In addition I did not find any Lands in this part of Holbeck in the 1841 census.
James Dunford Land
James Dunford Land was a name used in at least three generations of Lands.
Charles Land and Elizabeth Dunford had a son named James and a son named Charles Lewis Land. Charles Lewis Land had a son, John (1818) who named one of his sons, James Dunford Land (1855).
