LEERS TO CONNECT
Christopher Leer married Jane Elmes 13/2/1702 Saint Giles, Cripplegate. Is he connected?

No. He was actually Christopher Layer (spelling was variable in those days)of Norfolk, who married Janes Elwes, from a well-know gentry family. Their son was Christopher Layer, the famous Jacobite, executed at Tyburn.

Thankyou Christopher for clearing that up. That is one I can eliminate from my list on my journey to get it all correct.
Cheers

When I said that there was no connection with the Leer/Elwes marriage, I must specify that I meant that there was no genealogical connection. When Christopher Leer was baptised in 1729 or 1730, his parents must have known that his name would be virtually the same as that of someone who was hanged, drawn and quartered for Jacobite intrigue in 1723. I think this means that they approved of the deceased, for partisan reasons. Possibly George Leer had suffered in the South Sea Bubble, the usual reason for hating the government in those days. Or maybe the Fieldings were Jacobite: Beau Fielding was a noted Catholic adherent of King James. I have not yet found any list of South Sea subscribers: an important tool for genealogists, I would have thought.
