- Leonora, Guyana, originally called Plantation Leonora is situated some nine miles from Vreed-en-Hoop.
The name Leonora is Dutch coming from the time of Dutch occupation of the country. It originated from the names of two Dutch children, Nora, a girl and Leo, a boy.
Leonora encompasses an area of some five square miles, and was once part of the Parish of St. Luke. It stretches from Edinburgh in the East to Stewartville in the west. It goes north to as far as the Atlantic Ocean and south as far as the conservancy.
