Eleventh Generation


1888. Henry (Layland) Leland was born in 1625 in England.462 He immigrated in 1652 to the United States of America.462 He died on 4 April 1680 at the age of 55 in Sherborn, Massachusetts (Middlesex).462 "The Children and Grandchildren of HENRY LELAND, who was born in England, about the year 1625; married Margaret Badcock, came to America in the year 1652, and died in Sherburne, Mass., April 4th, 1680."

"The family name appears to have been spelt by Henry and his son Eleazer, Layland. By his sons Hopestill and Ebenezer, Lealand. And their descendants, who remained in Sherburne and Holliston, continued to use the same mode of spelling, until about thirty years ago. But since the year 1820, the name, in all the different branches of the family, has been almost invariably spelt Leland."

"Henry Leland's first child, was either born while on his passage from England, or very soon after his arrival in America, for it appears from the church records of Dorchester, that Hopestill, son of Henry and Margaret Layland, was baptized in May 1653. The births of his other four children, are entered upon the town records of Medfield. They were born before the existence of Sherburne as a town, not in Medfield, but upon the land, which, upon the incorporation of the town of Sherburne, became a part of its territory. His daughter Experience was married in 1672, settled in Dedham, and continued to reside there until the time of her death.--His three sons settled, lived and died in Sherburne, near the place of their births." Margaret Babcock and Henry (Layland) Leland were married in 1652 in Dorchester, Massachusetts (Suffolk).276
