Biography

England flag
Henry Leigh M. A. was born in England.

Henry was born in 1864. He was the son of Frederick Leigh and Sarah Bearham. He married Alice Maud Bayliss in 1891 in Portsea, Hampshire. In 1894 he was living at Oxford at 35 Holywell Street (Henry Devenish Leigh, pro-proctor).[1] In 1901 he was a college fellow & tutor at Oxford, and seems to have co-authored a textbook on the history of Rome while there, the publication date of which is variously states as 1898 or 1901, which has been scanned and is online - the preface is dated 1896, which may give a better idea of when the work was completed.[2][3]. From 1896 to 1901 Henry was at 2 Holywell Street, and listed as Vice-President of Corpus Christi College.[4] The 1907 printing of the Rome book describes him as "H. D. Leigh, M.A., Late fellow and tutor of Corpus Christi College, Oxford". He died in 1909 in Southampton aged 44. A two-volume French book on the Phoenicians and the Odyssey was donated to Corpus Christi library in memory of him.[5]
