Around 1910 or so, Joseph Leach began renting (?) a holiday 'retreat' for him and his family on the island of Anglesey. The house was 'Min-y-don' in the town of Beaumaris.  When there, the family worshipped at the local Presbyterian Church opposite the Post Office.  Later after the death of Joseph (1917), the family bought the house (1920), and it eventually passed to the son Wilfred.

The house at 4 Townsend has had at least two names during its history: 'Min-y-don' and 'Bodlondeb', but currently (2003), and while the Leaches were there, it has been called 'Min-y-don'.
