Title: Descendant of Dr. MacLea of Rothesay
Posted by: Kyle MacLea
Date: 05 December 2007

Well, a recent Google books search did yield substantial information on one of the descendants of Dr. (Archibald, presumably) MacLea (of Rothesay, presumably, although only "Church of Scotland" is mentioned).

Charles Gascoigne Maclea, Esq. (1793-1864)

He lived in Leeds and married, though he apparently had no issue.  There is apparently a carved font in St. Mark's Church Woodhouse that he presented to that church.  His business (Maclea and March) was flax-spinning equipment, among other things.  He was an alderman of Leeds and on the Boards of several companies or organizations.

An interesting read!
