Leonard Lewis Rees

Leonard was the son of Benjamin and Catherine Rees. He was registered as Leonard Lewis Rees, but in the family bible his name was spelt as Leonard Louis Rees.

He was born in Glascoed on March 28th 1872 and was baptised at Monkswood parish church on 16th June 1872.

The family had to move away from Glascoed by 1879, since the farm had to be sold to pay death duties for a family member who was in Australia, according to family folklore. The family moved to Bootle by 1881, via Gloucester. He was working as a groom in Bootle at the time of the 1891 census.
