After a little light digging
and if your interested
in 1881 Leonard Burton was a pig dealer in West Derby.
in 1871 Leonard was a Farm Servant in Sedburgh, Yorkshire.
in 1861 Leonard was a scholar (at school) the son of a Cordwainer (a leather shoemaker) William Burton.
in 1851 William Burton is a shoemaker in Sedburgh.
So Leonard's parents were William Burton & Ann Handley who married in Sedburgh in 1850 (Ann Handley's parents were William Handley & Mary, he was a carpenter & she was a Woolen jacket knitter)
in 1841 William Burton is living with his parents John Burton & his wife Margaret a shoemaker of Dent, Sedburgh Yorkshire.
William probably named his son, after his brother also called Leonard.
