Origins of surname

This name comes from the German personal name, itself derived from Luit-bold, meaning bold people.

Early records

The Leopold family from Bavaria arrived in Jersey in the 1860s. Lewis Liebmann Leopold and his younger brother Sigmund both came to the island. It is not clear whether their father Isaac and his wife Ruth also came.

Lewis acquired the Albion Hotel, Mulcaster Street, in 1864, and Sigmund was in business as a tobacconist at No 46 King Street by 1871, moving six years later to No 13, which was bought by his wife, Ellen West.
