           Seth Smith was born on 5 March 1856 at Leyland, Lancashire, England. There is no father's name or even a surname listed for him on the birth certificate, so it falls under his mother's maiden name of Bromley. Was John Smith, who married his mother in July 1856, the biological father? Seth took on the surname of Smith after his mother married John Smith.1,20,21,22,23    He was christened on 30 March 1856 at St. Andrews Church, Leyland, Lancashire, England, as Seth Bromley.2    A strange story of the construction of the church has been handed down from generation to generation-a mysterious legend-the Legend of the Leyland Cat Creature.
In the small village of Whittle-le Woods (Approximately 4 miles from Leyland), the villagers met and agreed that they would, between them, build a small church to benefit their community.
The local miller donated a plot of land, the Priest was appointed to oversee and organise the workforce in this construction project.
The first day of construction arrived and the builders placed their materials on the site and began to lay the stone.
When the builders arrived the following day, they were stunned to discover that the stone had disappeared.
After much searching, the stone, without explanation, was discovered in the nearby village of Leyland.
Angry, the people of Whittle-le Woods toiled to retrieve the stones; they returned them to their site and continued with the construction work.
Fearful that the materials may again be taken in the night, they appointed two men to stay on site, an overnight vigil.
Unfortunately, tiredness got the better of the two men and they both fell asleep for a short time-they awoke to find that all the stone had again vanished.
Again, the stone was recovered from the same site in Leyland.
Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and prevent the same thing from happening again, the Priest arranged a further night vigil and stayed on himself until midnight. As soon as the priest left-one workman turned around and was terrified to see a huge black cat with enormous eyes and a barbed tail-the cat picked up one of the stones and, fast as lighting, ran off with it-returning almost immediately for another one.
The two workmen watched the cat from the shadows until eventually, one of them gathered enough courage to try to stop the cat-he ran up to it and using all his strength, hit it over the head with a piece of wood-before he could raise the wood to deliver another blow, the cat turned and attacked him...his workmate, terrified, fled to get the priest. However, upon their swift return, the man was dead and the cat and all the stones were gone.
From that point on, it was deemed that the church would be built upon the site in Leyland where the cat had placed the stones....this is the site of Leyland St. Andrew's Church.
Others attributed the movement of the stones to Leyland as the work of an Angel...
"Here I have placed thee,
And here thou shalt stand,
And thou shalt be called
The Church of Leyland."24
