Subject:        Pronouncing Leicester Correctly

The Earl of Leicester's name is pronounced as if  it were Lester. Can
anyone shed some light on this and further would the name in
Shakespeare's time have been pronounced as Lester or in some other
fashion(s)?

Thank you for any help in this.

Regards,
Ira
