He played for the Durban XI, and for Natal in the Currie Cup, 1894. He played soccer for Victoria Athletic when they won the Natal Cup, and for Natal; and rowed for the Durban Rowing Club. In 1896 he was Swimming Champion of Natal. But cricket was his first sport. He played for Matabeleland against Mashonaland in 1897, taking 5 days to get there (by coach) and for several years after. He was Captain of the Rhodesian First XI in the Currie Cup against the Transvaal, 1906. In 1907 he played for W. G. Grace's London County XI and made over 1000 runs; Grace had a great opinion of him and called him “The Kangaroo Hitter". The selectors wanted him to play in the last Test Match in 1907, but “his brother refused on the ground that he had not been picked in South Africa".
He played in 7 first-class matches between 1893/94 and 1909/10. These comprised 4 first-class matches for Natal between 1893/94 and 1894/95 and 3 for Rhodesia between 1904/05 and 1909/10.
In 1889 he joined the Standard Bank, then in 1896 moved to Rhodesia. In February 1897 he became an Assistant in the Chief Native Commissioner's Office at Buluwayo, and later Native Commissioner and Assistant Magistrate. From 1915 he farmed at Ntabenende, S. Rhodesia.
He was President of the Essexvale Farmers Association for two years, and of the Inziza Farmers Association; he was on the executive of the Buluwayo Landowners and Farmers Association, and the Buluwayo Agricultural Society; and a member of the Mzingwane Road Council. Also, he stood for Parliament three times. He died at Grand View, near Bushtick, in Rhodesia 22/9/1945.
He was three times married. His first wife was:
[ADBB/1] MABEL LLOYD
b. at Durban, 3rd. d. of Capt. Walter Lloyd of Durban and of Deepdene, Richmond, Natal (1823-1879) and his wife, Marion Fanny, neé Grice (m. at St. Paul's, Durban, 18/6/1856). Walter Lloyd was the third son of Thomas Lloyd, of the ancient family of Lloyd of Coedmore (Cardiganshire). He settled in Natal after serving with the Indian Army, and became a JP and an MP in the Cape Parliament. The elder branches failing, his grandson Edward Howard Lloyd eventually succeeded to the Coedmore Estate (see Debrett, 1969, &c.)
The only child of Leo and Mabel Robinson surviving infancy was:
[ADBBA] Victor Lloyd 1899 - 1966
[ADBBA/1] Marguerite May Beck b. 1900
Mabel died at Mzingwane 8/12/1901 shortly after giving birth to twins, neither of whom survived.
Her eldest sister Florence married Leo's uncle William Henry Addison Jnr.
James Phillips-Evans (Blorenge@btinternet.com) writes, 4/11/2006:
“I am interested in Mabel Lloyd, the first wife of Leo George Robinson. I see that she was the daughter of Capt. Walter Lloyd of Durban. I am wondering whether he was my cousin Walter Lloyd (1823-1879), the third son of Thomas and Charlotte Lloyd of the Coedmore estate in Cardiganshire. My Walter is known to have emigrated to Natal and that he had a son Lewis Howard Lloyd (d. 1930) whose son eventually inherited Coedmore. However, I know nothing of Walter's career, wife or other children so they could be the same person. Do you have any other details about Mabel's background that may assist?"
Leo Robinson married, secondly:

Phil Tomaselli, of Swindon, (e-mail: email@example.com)
is preparing a book on the Battle of Locon. He writes:
“It is clear from the various descriptions of the battle that Lt. Addison was one of the bravest and most professional officers involved in what developed into a three-day rearguard action, holding back a dangerous German advance near Locon in French Flanders (during the last German Offensive of the Great War in Spring 1918). He tragically became seperated from his unit, King Edward's Horse, late in the battle, and they spent a great deal of time trying to trace him. In August 1918 (i.e. at the start of the great Allied Offensive which ended the War) they found his body; they were quite convinced of this, as were the War Office who issued a Death Certificate on that basis. However, he is commemorated on the Loos Memorial to the Missing, which suggests that either the body, or the paperwork, were subsequently lost."
Mr. Tomaselli is eager to locate any information on, or photographs of, participants in this battle.

Their grandson Ross writes: “My father's mother was (a) paymaster to the British Troops in the First World War and worked for Cox's Military Bank in London. Rumour has it that she was the only woman that the misogynistic Lord Kitchener would open a door to. Possibly because she paid him his cheque at the end of the month.
