Leishman Family History

This interesting surname is the Scottish form of the name "Leachman" or "Leechman", from the Old English "laece", leech, and "mann", servant of the physician, hence, someone who used leeches in helping a physisian, to cure somebody. The name is widespread around Falkirk, "where the name occurs with a frequency bewildering to the record searcher", and was not uncommon among the Border clergy in pre-reformation days. The name is found early in the Curia Rolls of Yorkshire when an Adam Lacheman was recorded in 1210.
