LEITH OF FBEEFIELD.

((See preceding Memoir.)

Leith-Hay, Col. Alexander Sebastiait, C.B.,

/Vberdeen, h. 1819; s. 1862; m. 1860, Christina
Grace Agnes, dau. of WiUiam Charles Hamilton,
Esq. of Craighlavr, co. Wigton ; served in the 93rd
Highlanders with distinction through the Canadian
rebellion of 1857-59, the Crimean War, and the
Indian Mutiny ; is a linight of the Legion of
Honom-, and of the Order of the Mejidie.

Lineage.— The surname of Leith is of great antiquity
in Scotland, and those who bore it held, in a remote era, vast
possessions, including the barony of Restalrig, and others in
the shire of Mid-Lothian and territory of Leith, whence it is
presumed, the name was assumed. The immediate ancestor
of the family before us,

William Leith, of Barnis, living in the time of David
Bruce, and said to have been the male representative of the
Leiths of Edimjarrock, was provost of Aberdeen in 1350, and
proprietor of the lands of Caprinton, in co. Aberdeen. He
,11. a dau. of Donald, 12th Earl of Marr, and had two sons..
