Origin of ‘Leggatt Hill’

I have extracted the attached list of Leggatt burials in the 16th to 19th centuries from the Lodsworth St Peter’s burial register. I assume that Leggatt Hill was named after this family but it could of course be the other way round.

One thought on “Origin of ‘Leggatt Hill’”

  1. My thanks for your prompt response. In Norfolk a leggatt is an instrument used in thatching but I gather there are various origins for the name.
