  m. (11.1689) Anne Francisca Lesley (dau of Patrick Lesley, Count Lesley, of family of Balquhain)
  BLG1952 reports that John sold Ballindalloch to his kinsman William Grant. BLG1952 identifies John Roy's father-in-law as Count Patrick Lesley but suggests that he was Field Marshal in the Imperial service though it seems that that position was not held by Patrick but by his brother James. BLG1952 also reports that John Roy "is believed to have been father of" John, 2nd of Phonas. BLG1863 (Leslie of Balquhain) mentions only 1 John and 'Historical Records of the Family of Leslie from 1067 to 1868-9' by Colonel Leslie of Balquhain (vol 3, p172), which supports the following (for the 1st John), reports that they "had one son, John Grant". We show the information for the 2nd John to make sure we do not lost sight of it but show it in italics to make it clear that we do not really think that its connection to this family is shown correctly.

  m. ?? ("daughter of an Episcopal clergyman in Fife")
