  • Notes 
    • Les Mead notes:

      Ezekiel Mead Spash was born in Hartley on the outskirts of Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire on the 18th May 1818, this is the year that Stamford Raffles founded Singapore. His father was a farmer and he was the second eldest of twelve children.

      He met and married an Esther Bollen in the 3rd quarter of 1839 in St Mary's Church, Limpley Stoke, Wiltshire. Esther was born in July 1821 in Bradford on Avon. Her parents were James born Wiltshire 1795 and his wife Hester born 1799 they both passed away in April 1850 in Bradford on Avon. James's parents were Male Bollen 1768 wife unknown and their parents were James Bollen 1745 and Ann 1750 both residents of Winsley. Esther had a brother John born 1825 who married a Ruth and had 3 children George 1844, Ann 1847 and Hanny 1849. Esther passed away in April 1849 in Stepney.

      His career varied he is shown as a Labourer on one census but at his sons George Mead Spash's marriage in 1839 he states that he is an engineer. It is acknowledged that his son was an engineer and he is the one that within 12 months of marriage had dropped the Spash from his name and become plain George Mead as did consecutive members of the family.

      His son George Mead Spash was born 1839 and had a sister born 21st July 1846 in St Dunstan, Stepney, named Ellen Mead Spash. George married an Elizabeth Caroline Leach born 22nd December 1840 in Whitechapel. Her father Richard Leach was a tailor by profession. They married on the 14th January 1858 at St Bartholomew, Bethnal Green. George's occupation was shown as that of an Engineer.

      Richard Leach was born 28th January 1819 baptised 11th November 1821. His father was Richard, a Watchmaker. He was a tailor living at 13 King Street Islington, his wife was Elizabeth Collier. They married on the 29th March 1840 in Bishopsgate. Her father was William Collier, also a tailor, which suggests that may be how the bride and groom met. Witnesses at the wedding were Thomas Leach and Caroline Collier, her sister. His mother was Louisa Richardson born 1st May 1790. A trivia aside, Samuel Taylor Coleridge lived at No 10 King Street from 1798-1801.
