My Grandad was Raymond Leigh, born in London I’ve recently discovered his Father was Leslie Leigh, on birth certificate He was abandoned as a baby and never knew of his parents Leslie was married to Rays mother, Phyllis Hay according to the birth certificate but there is no marriage certificate Would be great if anyone knew of this or of a Leslie Leigh Thanks


I believe Leigh is of different origin not irish. But nowadays there are many Leighs in Ireland. Although I am in the UK...
