Leeds County is an historic county in the Canadian province of Ontario.

The county was created in 1792, and merged with Grenville County in 1850 to create Leeds and Grenville County.

The county took its name from Francis Osborne, 5th Duke of Leeds (The "Leeds" of the Dukedom was named for Leeds in West Yorkshire, England and not for Leeds, Kent, England).
