I am looking for the parents of John Leslie who was born in 1811 (source not verified) in Sanday Orkney Islands Scotland. He died in 1891 in Sanday.
John married Margaret Drever daughter of Thomas Drever and Margaret Fotheringham in Sanday. Margaret was born in 1806 in Sanday. She died in 1883 in Sanday.
They had the following children: Margaret Fotheringham Leslie was born on 18 Aug 1840 in Sanday. She was christened on 13 Sep 1840 in Sanday. John Paul Leslie was born on 1 Feb 1842. Mary Leslie was born on 2 Aug 1844 in Sanday. She was christened on 17 Sep 1844 in Sanday. Thomas Leslie was born on 30 Jun 1845 in Sanday. He died in 1845. Robina Leslie was born on 11 Jun 1847 in Sanday. She was christened on 8 Aug 1847 in Sanday. She died in 1899. William Leslie was born on 24 Sep 1849 in Sanday. He was christened on 19 Dec 1849 in Sanday. Thomas Leslie was born on 5 May 1853 in Sanday. He was christened on 5 Aug 1853 in Sanday. Any information on his parents, brothers or sisters would be appreciated. It is possible that the family was originally from Fair Isle, but I'm unsure of this.
