John Hamilton, later Leslie, 9th Earl of Rothes (bpt 21.08.1679, d 09.05.1722)
John is numbered the 9th Earl by BP1934 but TSP excludes his mother, Countess of Rothes in her own right, from its numberings of the Earls and so numbers him as the 8th Earl. We follow BP1934 & 'LeslieRecords' , hwich are supported by TCP (Rothes), and so differ with TSP hereafter as to the numberings of the Earls.
