Searching for the John Leadbeater Jr. Family of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (b: c1781 England)

They owned Leadbeater & Company which made exquisite Argand style Lamps until 1832. They were in the 3rd and Walnut Street area's in the downtown area of Philadelphia.

John travelled frequently back to England during the early 1800's. They appear to have come to Philly by 1809.

John's wife Mary was born about 1801 and they had at least 8 children:
Joseph b:1823 england,
Mary b:1825 England,
Alfred b:1826 England,
Thomas b:1831,
Henry / Harry b:1832,
Caroline b:1838,
James b:1835,
John b: 1844
The first 3 are believed to be born in England, but the others were either born in England or Philadelphia.
