    • Solomon had probably gone to Holland to escape prosecution.

      From A Genealogical History of the Jennings Families in England and America, p. 568:

      [Solomon Leonard] seems to have emigrated first to Leyden in Holland, probably with his father whose name it is believed was Samuel. There is some probability that they came to this country together; if so, the father must have died soon afer. The exact period that Solomon emigrated to this country, and the place from which he embarked, it has been impossible to ascertain. Judge Mitchell, in his History of Bridgewater, says: 'In 1629, thirty-five of the Leyden people, with their families, arrived at Plymouth, and in 1630, sixty more came. Many of the Bridgewater proprietors were doubtless among these.'

    • Solomon was one of the incorporators of the town. He had land at "Blue Fish", in what is now the northerly part of the village of Duxbury, near the bay; and it is said of him that he "escaped the ravages of fire and flood."
