    The Leslies of Ballybay are descended from James Leslie, fourth son of the 4th Earl of Rothes of Leslie House, Fifeshire. He married a daughter of Sir James Hamilton of Evendale; their eldest son, born at Aberdeen, settled in Ireland in 1614. He was chaplain to Charles I, and in 1635 was made Bishop of Down and Connor, and afterwards translated to Meath. He was the owner of the property and castle of Kilclief (now a ruin), on the shore of Strangford Lough, Co. Down, which has remained in the Leslie family ever since.
