Hello,
My 2x Great Grandfather, James Leask died in 1865 at Hindatown, Grimiston, Harray.

Would this be a farm and if so would the early buildings still be there?

Where would he likely be buried?
Thank you.
Regards
Allan

Hi Allan

Hindatown is a very modern farm in Grimeston, Harray so no old buildings there now. No Leasks there in any of the census in Harray, but there is a James Leask in Buckan, Sandwick aged 74 in 1861, born Rendall. No gravestone in Harray or Sandwick for James Leask d. 1865. When was your James Leask born?

Thank you. I understand he was born about 1790 but there is very confusing info about him and he could be the one you mention but with wrong age.

Thank you for advising about Hindatown and confirming there is no grave for him.

Allan
