|| (Leedom) |
- From "The Leedom Family" by Sara A. L. Eachus: John's wife, name unknown, died in 1707 as written in William and Sarah Phipps Leedom's bible. I've not seen copies of the bible pages and I've found no other records that reference the date of her death or even her name.
The burial of "Ellen, wife of John Leedom" is recorded in the registers of All Saints, Spofforth, Yorkshire and is shown by some as the wife this John Leedom:
26 Feb 1709 Ellen Wife of John Leedam of Follifoot Moorside
She was Ellin Winterburn who married John Leedom on 28 Aug 1684 at All Saints Church in Spofforth. Her husband was buried 24 Jul 1709 in the same churchyard and was not the same as the John Leedom who died before Oct 1701 when his son Richard was married.
Farnham is less than five miles north of Follifoot which is only two miles from Spofforth and approximately 20 miles northeast of South Milford and Sherburn-in-Elmet, a not impossible distance for travel or relocation. It's entirely possible, if not likely, that the two John Leedoms were related.
