Bio Notes: Andrew Leitch was born c.1847 in Paisley. He practised independently from at least 1874 when his address was 83 Renfield Street. Later that year he appears to have moved to 137 Cambridge Street, remaining there unitl 1880 when the recession following the failure of the City of Glasgow Bank seems to have obliged him to revert to being an assistant. He was with Clarke & Bell in 1894-95.

He was a widower by the time of the 1891 census with three children: Eleanor (born c.1881), Agnes (born c.1884) and Andrew (born c.1886). He lived in the same building in Cadder Street as William James Anderson until 1900.
