  TSP identifies 2 wives for Sir George, Isobel Leslie (identified as his wife on 24.02.1609) and Mary Butler (mother of James). Some sources (including Brydges's 1812 revision of Collins's 'Peerage of England' (vol II, Abercorn)) confirm his 2nd wife as Mary Butler but identify his 1st wife as Isabella "of the family of Civico of Burges in Flanders" and then show Sir George & Isabella as parents of Margaret, wife of Sir Archibald Acheson, who we show above as daughter of Sir George's brother John.
