Bristol County, MA Biographies





Leeming & Jones. - This firm although not an old one has become one of the leading houses of contractors and builders in Fall River. During the last five years they have erected over 300 buildings and put up about sixty in 1897. The firm is composed of Alfred Leeming and J. G. Jones. Alfred Leeming was born in England, May 2, 1868, and came to this country with his parents, Richard and Elizabeth Leeming, when an infant. They settled in Fall River, where Alfred attended the public schools for some time and then found work in a cotton mill. In 1885 he began an apprenticeship to the carpenter's trade under Nathaniel Ford, with whom he remained five years, when he worked as a journeyman for several years with E. Brownell, whose business he bought in company with Mr. Jones in 1892. Mr. Leeming is a member of the I. O. O. F. He married Susan E., daughter of Pelig H. Peckham of Fall River, and they have three children: Elsie, Elwood and Preston. J. G. Jones was born in Wales, February 14, 1849, and came to America in 1872. He was a carpenter in the old country and followed that occupation here until the formation of the present firm of Leeming & Jones. Mr. Jones married Sarah Popple, and they have four children: Herbert, Frederick, Edith and Kate.
