Pennsylvania Traveler Post, Vol 1, Issue 3, May 1965, an article about the Toby Leech family.
Toby Leech joined with three other Quakers, John Ashmead, Richard Wall and Edward Bolton to purchase 1000 acres from William Penn.
Toby & Hester along with their son were on the 18th boat (The Bristol Factor) to leave for PA. from England. Toby died in 1726.
When Toby died, he had acquired 2,700 acres of land and had been a member of the PA Assembly in 1713, 1714, 1715, 1717, and 1719. It is also believed Toby was a large stockholder and a member of the Free Society of Traders. As such he built several mills along the Tacony Creek and was given additional land by William Penn as a partial compensation for the risk he took in investing in the society.
from genforum: this is the same Toby Leech who came from Cheltenham, England at the time of William Penn. He was an original PA land owner as was his father-in-law John Ashmead, who never came to this country, but left his land to Toby. Toby's mother-in-law was Mary Ashmead; she came over on the Bristol Factor.
