I have an ancestor called James Leith b.1840 in Scotland. He married Elizabeth Jenkins in 1872 (b.1853, Llangattock, Wales).
They had the following children: Henry James Leith b.abt 1875, Banff, Scotland. Annie Georgina Leith b.1875, Quakers Yard, Wales, Alexander John Leith b.1877 Banff, Scotland, James Coutts Leith, b.1880 Garbally, Galway, Ireland.
I can find records of Elizabeth and her children, but very little about James Leith. Family stories say he was a solider and this may account for the children being born in various places, but again I can't find formal records.
Any help would be gratefully received.
