Details: There's a note by Thomas Hanson to the Land Claims Court (Russell) in 1857 about James Leitch. Thomas said that he had previously been a partner of James Leitch whose grant for 550 acres has been called in, but that Leitch had gone away many years ago. The land adjoined John Reid's at Owhara.
Another note on NZETC about James Leitch selling land to Robert Ireland Leitch at Tokopokerru.
