Leigh spent most of his working life as an accountant and salesman with Richards Akroyd and Gall and with Robert S. Day and Son. Both firms were insurance agencies; Richards Akroyd and Gall also acted as a real estate agency.

In 1927, Leigh travelled to Rosemead, California, where he apparently planned to live permanently. Florence’s mother, Lucy Farish, was travelling with him. It appears that Leigh did not stay long in the United States.
