This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Alexander Leigh of Bretherton, Lancashire
'The Gentleman's Magazine' reports that the family "was descended from a highly respectable line of ancestry, who have been possessed of landed property (in Lancashire) for several centuries past; but it cannot be maintained, as Mr. Burke in the account of the family in his Baronetage asserts, that they are of the same descent as the Leighs of Adlington, in the county of Chester, which is unquestionably an error."
