Descendants spell the surname Leggett. Ephraim was convicted at the Bury St Edmunds Assizes of stealing a lady’s topcoat. He was born around 1811. He married Barbara Simpson, 20 Jan 1851 in St Andrew’s, Sydney. They lived on Blaxland property near Merriwa and Ephraim worked as an overseer. He died after a horse fell on him. His grandson William Leggett who had left Goulburn NSW and joined the Life Guards in London was one of the first Australians killed in World War I. He died in a cavalry skirmish in which three Uhlan were also killed. There are memorials to Corporal of Horse William Leggett in Belgium and at the Rocky Hill Memorial in Goulburn.
