  • Born: Abt 1539
  • Marriage: Lady Agnes Leslie on 19 August 1554
  • Died: 27 September 1606 aged about 67

bullet  General Notes:

After Archibald, 5th Earl of Morton and 8th Earl of Angus died without
heir, the Morton titles settled on Sir William of Lochleven. Sir
William was 7th from Sir Henry of Lugtoun and Lochleven, younger
brother of Sir James of Dalkeith. Sir William is best remembered for
his role as jailer of Mary Queen of Scots during her confinement at
Lochleven Castle. Sir William's eldest son disappeared in travel circa
1548, so the Morton possessions devolved to Sir William's grandson
upon his death on September 27, 1606.


William married Lady Agnes Leslie on 19 August 1554.
