Administrative/Biographical history:

In the late 1820's Jonathan Thomas Sleap was practising as a solicitor from No. 2 Middle Temple Lane, London. Before this, in 1822, he was at Barnards Inn in the parish of Holborn. In 1828 he was described as being of Brentford, but by 1839 he was residing at Ealing, where he remained until his death in April 1864.

His house at Ealing Green was called The Gret, which may have been the property known, in 1892, as Rock House (see ACC/1396/30). Sleap purchased considerable property in Middlesex, Cumberland and Buckinghamshire. On his death the estate was shared out amongst three women as tenants for life. One of these was Sleap's natural daughter, Julia Peacey.
