BIOGRAPHYThe origins of Ann Leith (Logan) are not entirely clear. Ann was the daughter of Margaret Boyle and John/James Logan, born in 1838 in Dalry, Ayrshire, according to Ann's marriage and death registration. Her mother married Joseph Leith in Dalry in 1841 after the birth of another child. Ann was not recorded as present in the 1841 census, but in the 1851 census she was listed as the daughter of Joseph and Margaret Leith, born Dalry. Ann was born before civil registration of births started in Scotland, and no record of her baptism has been found (neither Ann Logan or Ann Leith). A family photo album had a picture of Ann's mother labelled by Elizabeth Korte (nee Redpath) as "Mrs Leith"; giving the clue to her birth surname.
Searches for a marriage of Margaret Boyle and a Logan male in church registers for Aye between 1820 and 1850 had no results. There were no people with the surname Logan in the 1841 census returns for Dalry. There were no Logan deaths/burials for Dalry from 1800-1840.
It was concluded that Ann Leith was born in Dalry in 1838, the daughter of Margaret Boyle and Joseph Leith. It appears that she changed her surname to Logan after leaving home. This is supported by the birth registration of Mary Landells Leith in 1855, where Margaret Boyle's living children were listed as four sons and two daughters (Ann and Mary). Ann had an older half-sister Elspet Leith, b 1831 and raised by her paternal grandparents.
The Leith family lived in a number of locations based on census and baptism records: 1838-1841 Dalry, Ayrshire; 1843 Peterculter, Aberdeenshire where Joseph's parents lived; 1845 Prestonkirk, East Lothian; 1850 Coldingham, Berwickshire; 1851 Cockburnspath, Berwickshire; 1855 Abbey St Bathans, Berwickshire; 1858 Northumberland, England. Ann's parents had separated by 1861, with Margaret living in Dalry for the rest of her life. Joseph Leith was a stone mason or stone dyker. He was placed in the Lunatic Wards of Stonehaven Poorhouse (Kincardineshire) in 1881 and died a few weeks later.
Ann and Thomas Redpath were living in Cockburnspath, Berwichshire in 1860 before they decided to migrate to New Zealand. The couple married in Edinburgh (1860) immediately before they migrated to New Zealand with their daughter Elizabeth (b 1856). Their second child , George, was born on the ship Robert Henderson when it arrived in Otago while waiting to disembark. The couple had another six children after arrival in Otago. Ann died in 1922 and was buried at Waitahuna, Otago.
ObituaryThere passed away recently, at the age of 94 years, a very old and highly respected resident of Waitahuna district in the person of Mrs Redpath, relict of Mr Thomas Redpath, one of the first settlers at Mount Stuart. Born at Darley, Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1838, she left for New Zealand, with her husband, in the sailing vessel Thomas Henderson, and arrived here in 1860. Mr and Mrs Redpath's first experience of New Zealand roads came early in their pioneering life, when, through some misunderstanding with regard to travelling arrangements, they had to walk from Dunedin to the Taieri with their eldest child and an infant in arms. The trials of this journey were never forgotten by Mrs Redpath. After residing for some years in the Taieri they removed to Akatore. and ultimately settled about 1870 at Mount Stuart, where Mr Redpath was the first person to take up land. By a coincidence Mrs Redpath was the last of the very early band of settlers to leave that district. Of a kindly and hospitable nature, Mrs Redpath was loved and respected by all who had the pleasure of her friendship. Steadfast in her convictions and strong in her Christian beliefs, she was a staunch adherent of the Waitahuna Presbyterian Church and a supporter of all that pertained to its welfare. Mrs Redpath was pre-deceased by her husband 30 years, and also suffered the loss of two sons, George and Thomas, in later years. The other members of the family are Mr James Redpath (Auckland), Mrs J. H. Kitto (Invercargill), Mrs D. Scott (Stirling), Mrs J. H. Bateman, Miss Redpath, and Mrs H. B. Crozier (Waitahuna). Mrs Redpath was laid to rest beside her husband in the Waitahuna Cemetery, the funeral service being conducted by the Rev. P. C. Durward, of Lawrence.
