Walter married Euphemia (I) Countess, 6th of Ross, daughter of William (III) 5th Earl of Ross and Mary MACDONALD, in 1365.1 (Euphemia (I) Countess, 6th of Ross was born about 1343, died after 5 September 1394 3 and was buried in Fortrose Cathedral, Scotland 4.)

  Marriage Notes:

"There is a charter in the possession of the Earl of Strathmore, by which Andrew de Leslie, Dominus Ejusdem, confirms a charter from Walter de Leslie, Dominus de Philorth, of all the lands which the said Walter had in territorio de Monergood, to John Lyon de Terteviot. In this charter Sir Andrew de Leslie calls Sir Walter de Leslie his uncle - viz., 'Sciatis nos vidisse cartam dilecti patrui nostri Walteri de Lesley de Philorth, &c.' There is no date in this charter of confirmation, but it must have been granted between 1365, the year in which Sir Walter de Leslie married Euphemia, daughter of the Earl of Ross, and assumed the title of Lord of Philorth, and the year 1372, when he became Earl of Ross in right of his wife, on the death of William, Earl of Ross, his father-in-law."
