- 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.
