Andrew Young

1854-1925

and his family

Thank you to Sue Hughes, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, for providing the following details from her family history research.  Sue tells me that she is related to the Fife photographer, Andrew Young, through his father's family.

Andrew Young

Burntisland Photographer

  Andrew Young  -  Professional Photograher who worked initially for John Patrick in Kirkcaldy ©

Sue adds that her grandfather was also named Andrew Young (1901-1987), and she has a cousin with the same name. Her grandfather was the son of Andrew Young the photographer's cousin, also named Andrew Young!  So far she has tuned up 8 Andrew Youngs in the family!

Sue has provided information on the family of John Leitch, from which the information below has been taken.
