Hi, Thanks for the information but this is not my Leonard family.
The name was possibly taken to Englandby the Leonards participating in the Saxon invasion. A branch also immigrated to France during the Middle ages and became Hugenots.They fled France back to Germany during the persecution of the Hugenots via Switzerland.
The information on my line can be found on the Leonard Forum. My records are 1. Michael Leonhardt Katzenbach Germany. 2. Valentine & Elizabeth Wallacher Leonhardt came to America on the Neptune from Rotterdam, Thomas Wilkerson, Master on Oct.25, 1756.
