Succeeded his nephew.
William, who was a civilian, served Charles I in the Secret Council, and, after the King's death, sought an asylum in Holland, where he passed the remainder of his life.
He wished to dispose of his rights to Balquhain for an annuity, and instead of offering them to the next heir, Alexander Leslie of Tullos, his half-brother, he made the estate over to Alexander's younger brother Walter, then a wealthy noble of Austria.
