    Succeeded his nephew as Baron of Balquhain in 1845.
    James had gone to Jamaica where he had acquired property. He returned to Scotland on his accession to the Barony. He roofed over the old and historic chapel at Fetternear, the Leslies of Balquhain home, which although in ruins was used as the family burial vault. Then in 1845 he built a new chapel next to it which remains in good condition. Of simple but handsome proportion, it is an attractive little church.

    He die unmarried.

    His succesor was Joseph, last Prince of Dietrichstein, (d July 1858), heir of tailize in the Austrian Estates of the Counts Leslie.
    A Baron of Balquhain, to be sure and can be so matriculated and seized of the principal messuage, but not a Leslie. [?] Therefore he is not one of the 'numbered' barons of Balquhain.
