"George Leslie, fourth laird, married, in 1710, Margaret, sixth daughter of Patrick Count Leslie, fifteenth baron of Balquhain. In 1727 - when proprietor of the estate of Tyrie - he presented to King's College a curious manuscript in vellum relating to the Cathedral Church of Aberdeen. He died in 1740. Early in the century he had sold the estate of Eden to Sir Francis Grant of Cullen, afterwards of Monymusk, who, in 1712, parted with Eden to William Duff, son of Alexander Duff of Braco, and grandson of Alexander Duff of Keithmore, from whom also descends the Duuke of Fife."
