Alexander was born, on 7th August 1792, in Gordon Castle, Morayshire,
and was appointed Ensign, on 7th August 1809, in the 61st Foot
Regiment. He was promoted Captain on 31st December 1825, Brevet Major
on 28th June 1838, Major on 7th January 1842, Lieut.-Colonel on 26th July
1844, and Brigadier on 14th January 1849. He and his father served with
the 61st Regiment in the Peninsular War, and, when his
father was severely wounded at Salamanca, he served to the end of the
campaign, and went to Jamaica with the regiment in 1815. Thereafter
he served in Ireland and Ceylon. In 1840, he returned with the regiment
to the United Kingdom, and was stationed at Cork for some years. On 1st
July 1845, Lieut.-Colonel MacLeod sailed for Calcutta on the WALMER
CASTLE, and after a stormy voyage arrived safely, and at the end of the
year he set out with his regiment on the long march to the Punjab. For
the next four years Colonel MacLeod took part in much severe fighting,
and he and his men were congratulated on their gallantry and good conduct.
While on service in Peshawar, Brigadier MacLeod and eight of
his officers died on 8th August 1849, of dysentery. His grave is outside

Bath (C.B.). He married, on 22nd February 1827, Agnes Duncan, daughter
