    Leonard Walter Jerome (November 3, 1817 – March 3, 1891) was an American financier in Brooklyn, New York, and the maternal grandfather of Winston Churchill.

  3. Leonard Jerome was all that and more: he was a feisty, flamboyant, ultra-wealthy investor, sportsman, diplomat, raconteur, and arts patron. He easily made fortunes and easily lost them. His friends were a “Who’s Who” of the nouveau riche elite, and by age forty his informal moniker was “The King of Wall Street.”

    Leonard Jerome was the son of Au­rora Mur­ray (1785–1867) and Isaac Jerome (1786–1866). Isaac was a de­scen­dant of Tim­o­thy Jerome, a French Huguenot im­mi­grant who ar­rived in the New York Colony in 1717. Jerome was born on a farm in the Cen­tral New York town of Pom­pey, near Syra­cuse. He orig­i­nally en­rolled in Prince­ton Uni­ver­sity, then known as the Col­lege of New Jer­sey, as a mem­ber of the Class of 1839, be­fore leav­ing for Union Col­lege, where he stud­ied law and set up a prac­tice in Rochester, New York. He later moved to New York City, where he be­came a stock spec­u­la­tor and pro­moter.

    Jerome was a flam­boy­ant and suc­cess­ful stock spec­u­la­tor. He made and lost sev­eral for­tunes, and was known as "The King of Wall Street". He held in­ter­ests in sev­eral rail­road com­pa­nies and was often a part­ner in the deals of Cor­nelius Van­der­bilt. He was a pa­tron of the arts, and joined in the founding[citation needed] of the Acad­emy of Music, one of New York City's ear­li­est opera houses. Dur­ing the New York Draft Riots, Jerome de­fended the New York Times of­fice build­ing with a Gatling Gun. Al­though he had sig­nif­i­cant hold­ings in the Times,he was not the ma­jor­ity share­holder as is some­times er­ro­neously claimed. The Jerome Man­sion, on the cor­ner of Madi­son Av­enue and 26th Street, had a six-hun­dred-seat the­atre, a break­fast room which seated sev­enty peo­ple, a ball­room of white and gold with cham­pagne- and cologne-spout­ing fountains, and a view of Madi­son Square Park. It was later sold and housed a se­ries of pri­vate clubs. The man­sion...

    Jerome was an avid sports­man. He en­joyed yacht­ing with his friend, William K. Van­der­bilt. They shared a spe­cial pas­sion for thor­ough­bred horse rac­ing and helped found the Amer­i­can Jockey Club. In the late 1860s, Jerome was part of sev­eral hunt­ing trips in the Amer­i­can West. These trips were guided by Buf­falo Bill Cody. In 1866, Jerome bought the es­tate and man­sion of James Bath­gate near Old Ford­ham Vil­lage in what was then rural Westch­ester County, but is now The Bronx. Jerome and fi­nancier Au­gust Bel­mont, Sr. built Jerome Park Race­track on the Bath­gate land; the first Bel­mont Stakes was held there in 1867. Jerome and his brother Lawrence had a wide boule­vard made from Ma­combs Dam to the track, which city au­thor­i­ties at­tempted to name "Mur­phy Av­enue" after a local politi­cian. This in­censed Jerome's wife so much that she had bronze plaques say­ing "Jerome Av­enue" made up and bolted into place along the road, forc­ing the city to ac­cept the nam...

    Jerome mar­ried Clarissa Hall (1825–1895) in Palmyra, New York, on 5 April 1849; and they had four daugh­ters to­gether. One daugh­ter, Camille, died at age eight. The other three – Jeanette, Clarita, and Leonie – be­came known, in some quar­ters, as "the Good, the Witty and the Beau­ti­ful". Leonard Jerome's wealth af­forded his daugh­ters the op­por­tu­nity to spend much time in Eu­rope, where they as­so­ci­ated with the aris­to­cratic elite of the day. All three mar­ried British or An­glo-Irishhus­bands: 1. Lady Randolph Churchill (née Jeanette Jerome; known as Jennie) married Lord Randolph Churchill (1849–1895), younger son of the Duke of Marlborough, and was mother to Winston Churchill and John Strange Spencer-Churchill. 2. Clarita Frewen (née Clarita Jerome), known as Clara, married Moreton Frewen (1853–1924), fifth son of Thomas Frewen MP, a charming spendthrift who ran up huge debts trying to operate a ranch in Wyoming, and through gambling, sports, and women. They had two s...

    Jerome Av­enue in the Bronx, Jerome Av­enue in Brook­lyn, Jerome Park Reser­voir, and the Jerome Stakesare all named after him.
