Searching for a Henry Leask, believed to be a sea Captain, or at least a sailor, b abt. 1811. Sailed to Canada and married Catherine Surrat sometime before 1860. I have NOTHING other than this on him before he married Catherine. It is family story that he was from the Orkney/Shetland area, but I have no proof. ANYONE?

Thanks,

Susan

If you go to Walt Custer's excellent Orkney Genealogy Site and download his file of Leask / Lesk births and christenings in Orkney, you will find several Henry Leasks / Lesks born around the time you indicate, though none actually in 1811.

Closest seems to be:

Henry LEASK (M) . . . . C: 1810

Father: Henry LEASK
Firth & Stenness, Orkney, Scotland
Mother: Margt. HOLLAND

(M= Male; C = Christened)

I have some info on an Orcadian Tulloch in Ontario at/near 1900 and after, if you want it.
