Leonard, George (1), a Congregational, and subsequently an Episcopal, minister, was born in Middleborough, Mass., April 6, 1783; graduated at Dartmouth College in 1805; studied with Dr. Perkins, of West Hartford; and was ordained over the Church in Canterbury, Conn., in 1808. After two years he was dismissed, and preached in various places in Massachusetts. In 1817 he was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal Church by bishop Griswold; admitted to priest's orders the following year at Marblehead; and was rector of Trinity Church, Cornish, N. H., and of St. Paul's, Windsor, Vt., until his death, which took place at the house of his sister in Salisbury, N. H., June 28, 1834. "Disinterested and judicious counsellor, open-hearted and honest man, and a sincere Christian." Several of his sermons were published. See Cong. Quar. 1859, p. 354.
