According to the book, "Genealogy of the Descendants of Thomas Gleason of Watertown, Mass. 1607-1909", Thomas Leeson was born in Sulgrave, England in about 1607 and died in Cambridge, Mass. in 1686. His first child, Thomas was born in 1637 "probably" in England, and his second child, Joseph, was born in 1642 in Watertown, Mass. So I'm guessing Thomas Leeson came to America around 1640. It appears he changed his last name from Leeson to Gleason upon arrival to America.
