1. Sir John Leslie of Birkhill & Newton (d 01.09.1651)
  TSP reports that John was killed with his father at the siege of Dundee. 'LeslieRecords' suggests that that was David, another son. Of his children, TSP reports (briefly) only his son John. The other children are as reported by 'LeslieRecords' except that we show Elizabeth a generation earlier.

  m. Antonia Barclay (dau of John Barclay of Collairnie)
  (1) John Leslie of Lumquhat, 8th Lord Lindores (b 1750, dsp 04.05.1813)
  'LeslieRecords' suggests that John's claim to the title did not succeed. However, TSP (Lindores) reports that his claim did succeed with a decision to object to him, which may have led Colonel Lesllie to think that his claim failed, being applicable only to certain votes that he took rather than to his title.

  'LeslieRecords' suggests that the first (unnamed) daughter married _ Kirkcaldy of Grange and shows the Elizabeth who married William Dick of Grange as of the next generation (dau of Sir John) but TSP shows that Elizabeth (2nd wife of William Dick) as this Elizabeth. We support TSP not least because above is shown James, Elizabeth's brother, who married William Dick's daughter by his 1st wife.
  m. William Dick of Grange
8. Jean Leslie (a 1649)
  m. Andrew Dick of Holland, Sheriff of Orkney (son of the Provost of Edinburgh)
