Searching for Edward Angus McLeod originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Captain of a ship that worked amongst the Caribbean islands in the mid to late-1800's. I was told that he married a Jessie Cruickshank from Grenada, lived there and later moved the family (9 children) to Georgetown, British Guiana. His youngest daughter, Jessie McLeod Slater (1886-1980) was my maternal Grandmother. His eldest daughter, Ada McLeod Speed (1874-1951) was born on his ship and later married in Guyana to a Joseph Speed from Liverpool, England.
Some of the surnames from this family are: Slater, Bell, Speed, McLean, Crombie, Burns, Crooks, Lyon, Clavier.
I would appreciate any information on this family that comes my way.

I am very interested in the fact that you have Crombie amongst the names you are researching in Guiana.
My grandfather was a Crombie born in Guiana and I am trying to trace other relations whom he had. I shall be grateful if you can let me know how you are connected to the Crombies.
