It's a great source (the original web site is easier to read: this font is a bit difficult), and my father bought me a copy for my 30th birthday. Yes, I know, I am a bit of a geek, aren't I?

Nick,

Looks as though your question has already been answered but just to say best place to look for these 'local' names, as opposed to place names is English Field Names; A Dictionary (1972) by (the aptly named) John Field.  My copy is in the office at the moment and I'm at home so I can't check it - someone else may have a copy handy?

Regards,

Mike

Hi Nick

I found this on the following website

leaze
This originally meant 'pasture', i.e. 'grazing', grassland set aside for animals to feed
in. Later it is sometimes not clearly distinguished from the other sort of grassland,
mead or meadow, which was land in which the grass was mowed for hay to
supply winter fodder for animals, bedding, and so on. Leaze is especially a word of
the south-west of England and very common in names of the Bristol area.

Subject: Leazes Place name

Hi folks,

does anyone know what Leazes means as a place name?

I have googled it and tried looking at the EPNS web page, and also our local volumes, but all I have found is the following link explaining it http://www.timarchive2.freeuk.com/html/leazes.htm but I am not convinced this is a reliable source, so any help appreciated.

I think it is a North Eastern England term
