Irish and Scotch are ethnicities -- not languages -- if you got that info from a census. You don't mention where Percy was born in 1900 and where he married.

Hello Kimberly:
On the 1901 Canada census, there is only 1 Percy Leach, 5 months old. (census taken as of March 31, 1901)
Your Percy lives in Ontario, Lanark South, Beckwith.
HOUSEHOLD:
LEACH, WILLIAM O.:married, head, male, born Dec. 25,
1858, age 42, farmer.
LEACH, JOSEPHINE: female, wife, married, born Aug.21
1865, age 35.
LEACH, PERCY R., male, son, single, born Oct 12, 1900,
age 5 months
LEACH, HENRY, male, father, widower, born Sept. 21,1833
DONALDSON, MARION M.: female, servant, single, born
Dec. 17, 1881, age 19.
You can trace the Leach family, 982 in Canada in 1901, at
Automated Genealogy

1881 Canada census
The following will be Percy's father, siblings and their parents.
Household:
LEACH, HENRY: married, male, Irish, age 47, born Ont.
farmer, Church of England
LEACH, ALICE: married, female, Irish, age 47, born Ont.
LEACH, WILLIAM: male, irish age 21, born Ont.
LEACH, SOPHIA: female, irish, age 19, born Ont.
LEACH, MARSELLA: female, irish, age 17, born Ont.
LEACH, HARIOT: female, irish, age 15, born Ont.
LEACH, HENRY, male, irish, age 8, born Ont.
Source Information:
Census Place: Beckwith, Lanark South, Ontario
For the 1881 Canadian census go to LATTER DAY SAINTS.
Here you will find 109 Leach in Lanark South.
6 families in Beckwith
7 families in Montague
4 in Smith Falls
1 Sherbrooke south
1 Perth.
All the above are in the same general area.
In Montague, the oldest is William Leach, born 1799 in Ireland. Perhaps this family is related to Henry, Percy's grandfather?

Next door:

Leach, Ellen, Daughter, age 3, single, b. Michigan
Leach, Geo. Jr., Son, age 1, single, b. Michigan

George is single and working in Mackinac County in 1900, so perhaps Percy wasn't born until 1901. I would be looking in Michigan for George & May's marriage certificate which may give you more info.
