From 1894 to 1912 Leeds Rural District was a rural district in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. It comprised an area adjacent to, but not including, the City of Leeds. It was alternatively known as the Rural District of Leeds (Roundhay and Seacroft).


the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

The district was formed by the Local Government Act 1894 as successor to the Leeds Rural Sanitary District. A directly-elected rural district council (RDC) replaced the previous rural sanitary authority, which had consisted of the poor law guardians for the area. The district comprised the two civil parishes of Roundhay and Seacroft.

On 9 November 1912 the rural district was abolished when the boundaries of County Borough of Leeds were extended and the two parishes became part of the city.
