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




best wishes
