  Marriage Notes:

"Sir William Leslie married Helen,
daughter of George Gordon of Newton, and
had issue ... "


"Helen is also mentioned in the Privy Council Register in 1594 and in the Newton MS. She married William Leslie of Ryehil, who succeeded his nephew as eighth baron of Wardes and as third and last baronet. Colonel Leslie (Family of Leslie, iii., 291) says she was a daughter of George Gordon of Newton and thus the great grand-daughter of John, which is extremely unlikely. She is given as the daughter of John in Macfarlane's Genealogical Collections, and in the Family of Johnston, p. 13."
