I also have an interest in the LEAKER name, if all my genealogy is correct, I think Thomas Leaker b.abt 1750 son of James LEAKER and Mary ROW married Mary HOWARD b.6-11-1752, married 2-1-1775, their son William married Ann MARTIN and came to Australia in 1842, their daughter Eliza married Samuel RIDGEWAY and they are my great great grandparents.I would be delighted to hear from you to compare notes. The name is very hard to research as it is listed as LECRE, LEKER, LEGAR, LEGER, LEAGER. The other names I hope are correct-their children's marriages -Thomas/ Ann ROW, Jenny/ Joseph COLLIER, John/ Martha ELLIOT, all in Abbotskerswell. Thomas would be my 4th great grandfather, hope we have a match. regards from Australia. PS. Some of the LEAKERS were fisherman in New Foundland.
