Biography: HENRY LESLIE was a scholar of Trinity College, Dublin, in 1667. It is not recorded that he took a degree till 1694 when the degree of D.D. was conferred upon him. He was appointed for the Bay in 1681, and sailed at the end of that year in the same ship as Hedges. He was recalled in the Despatch of May 1682, and sailed for home in January 1682-3. (Note. In 1680 on the recommendation of Streynsham Master the Bay agency was made independent of Fort St. George. The Bay Chaplains were after that period appointed direct to the Bay, and were no longer regarded as belonging to the Presidency of Fort St. George.)
