George was invested in his lands as Earl of Rothes on 25 May 1492. In 1498 George was summoned to trial for the murder of George Leslie alias Dunlop, and failed to appear in subsequent years. In 1509, the Leslie lands were recognized by James IV of Scotland. The King took back the family's feudal title because George had tried to sell the lands without permission. Chief amongst the lands was the title of the Barony of Ballinbreich Castle.
