Re: Digest Number 22
I thought I should post details about my Leslies
My ggggrandfather was Thomas Leslie, born c1796 Longside.
His wife was Bridget Leslie, born c1806 in Ireland
In the 1851 census, they are listed as living at 63 Kirk St, Peterhead.
They had 5 children:
(H)ellen, born c1842 Ireland
Mary, born c1834 Longside
Thomas Baron, born c1835 Longside
Joseph, born c1839 Longside
Bridget, born c1845 Peterhead
I don't know what happened to the other 4 children but my gggrandfather
Thomas Baron Leslie emigrated to New Zealand c1857. He was a sailmaker. He
married Jessie Colville in Lyttelton c1861 and they had 5 children: twins
Ellen Bridget and Jessie Colville, my ggrandmother Mary Ann, plus one more
daughter and a son.
Thomas died 10 June 1877.
Wade actually did the look up of the 1851 census for me and found the
additional details about Thomas's family. Up till then, all I had were the
details from his NZ death certificate.
Slante va and cheers from Wellington NZ
