Leeds was a major city in the area and a parish to the north west of Wakefield. There are
six parishes in Leeds as follows: St Peter (from 1572, on IGI, and on Boyd's marriage list),
Holy Trinity (from 1730, on IGI, and on Boyd's marriage list), St. John (from 1773, on
the IGI, and on Boyd's marriage list), St Mark and St Mary (from 1826, on IGI),
Christ Church (from 1827 and on the IGI), and St Paul's (from 1851, on IGI). Under
the listing for Leeds parish in 1792 through 179-, there are numerous "chapels"
including, Allerton, Holbeck and Hunslet. In addition there were several Independent Chapels in Leeds including, Queens Street Chapel and George Street Chapel, where records for the Lands have been located.
ST PETERS LEEDS
The Church of England records for Leeds, until at least 1803, are all on one Bishop's
Transcript regardless of the chapel.
There were Lands in the Parish as early as 1648. However, the records are sporadic
and do not seem to be connected from one generation to another.
See below for a list of the Land records in Leeds.
Lands in Holbeck/Souteast Leeds, specifically
Land Court and/or Water Lane
Charles Lewis Land (son of Charles Land and Elizaeth Dunford) and Anne Dinsdell
lived in Holbeck, Southeast Leeds. At the birth of their son, James Dunford Land
in 1826 their address was specifically given as Water Lane.
Other Lands with Water Lane addresses have connections to Land's Court
which was a court off Water Lane.
Charles Lewis Land and Elizabeth Dunford were members of the
Queens Street Chapel.
Other Lands connected to Queen Street Chapel were:
- Thomas Land (c 1783-), flax spinner, married Ann Shirt, October, 20, 1802 Rothwell
lived, Water Lane Leeds 1817 and 1822, 1829
See Queens Street Chapel and
Where the Lands lived in Leeds
See Lands in Queen Street Chapel
for more details on Thomas Land(s) and his (their) children.
Similarities between Thomas Land (1783) and Charles Land (1797):
- Thomas Land and Ann lived Water Lane, Holbeck, Leeds at the birth of
Ann Land in 1817 and John Shirt Land in 1822. Charles Lewis Land and Ann were at
Water Lane in 1826
- Thomas and Ann were members of the Queen Street Chapel and
Independent Congregation from at least 1817 to 1822. Charles Land and Ann Dinsdell were members of the
Queen Street Chapel from at least 1818 to 1833.
- Thomas born circa 1783 cannot be the son of Charles Land (1767 son of John)
and Elizabeth Dunford who did not marry until 1787.
- He could have been a younger brother of Charles Land (born 1767 son of John). There is only a 16 year difference. In this scenario would have been the
Charles Lewis Land.
