2. George Leslie of Balgonie (Bailie of Atholl then Captain of Blair Atholl Castle)
  TSP confirms that the 1st Earl was an illegitimate son of George, Captain of Blair Castle in Atholl, and reports that George was indeed identified "apparently on the authority of Macfarlane" with the above ancestry. However, TSP reports that "Macfarlane's account of (Captain George's) parentage, however, is very confused". 'LeslieRecords' identifies his wife as Sybil Stewart of Ballathan but BP1934 identifies her as Anne, dau of Stewart of Ballechin. We think that this was ...

  vii. Christian Leslie (d 12.1689)
  m. Walter Dundas of that ilk
  m2. Frances Ferrers (dau of Sir John Ferrers of Tamworth, relict of Sir John Packington of Westwood)
  'LeslieRecords' mentions this 2nd marriage but TSP reports that "no evidence has been found to corroborate this statement".
  m2/3. (10.12.1590) Margaret Stewart (dau of George Stewart of Arntullie & Cardney)
  TSP reports that George had a legitimate daughter Margaret who married twice, firstly in 1643 and again after her first husband died in 1647. It is an assumption that she was by Margaret Stewart who, according to BLG1952 (Steuart-Menzies of Culdares), did have issue by George.
