Lepper Family--

Some children of William Harper Lepper, d. 1875 and Mary Macaulay, d. 1895:

Millicent Sophia Lepper, mentioned as 6th dau; m. 1 T. G. Ovington of Glasgow;
m. 2 in 1874 to Robert Cunningham Colhoun, eldest son of Robert Ball Colhoun, M.D; Millicent
died in 1883.

Ellen Miller Lepper, mentioned as being the 4th dau, m. 1874 to Charles Leech, 3rd son of Charles Leech, Q.C.

Macaulay Higginson Lepper, died in 1875

And now we go with the questionable connections:

1.  Charles William Lepper of Lakeview, Bangor, Co. Down; m. Rosalie Catherine Langley (She d. 1909)  [Was he a son of William Harper Lepper and Mary Macaulay?]

2.  Annie Josephine, b. 1881

2.  Charles W. Lepper m. Florence Barry, dau of the late Surgeon Major D. Patterson Barry of Radipole, Weymouth

2.  John Charles Harper Lepper (1872-1916) m. 1896 Julia Darley Stot, d. 1934, 4th dau of Thomas Stott.

3.  John Langley Russell Lepper of Greystones, Co. Wicklow, b. 1909; m. 1940 Nellie Howe Meredith Scott, dau of the Rev. W. E. R. Scott and niece of Rev. R. Creed-Meredith.

3.  Katherine Langley Lepper, d. 1983, aged 85.

Found these photos, not too sure if it will work but fingers crossed, of Salmon fishing in Cushendun, Believe John Findlay would be a son of Maurice (although Im not sure) is in the middle of the 3 men.

KatioO,  thank you very much for posting the pictures.  I am sure that they will be appreciated by all who are doing genealogical research on both the Lepper and Finlay families.
With very best wishes,
Paul
