From Wikipedia

Was a Scottish nobleman. He was the son of George Leslie, 4th Earl of Rothes, and his third wife Agnes Somerville, daughter of Sir John Somerville of Cambusnethan and Elizabeth Carmichael. He succeeded his father as 5th Earl in 1558. His elder half-brothers Norman Leslie and William Leslie forfeited their rights by having been implicated in the murder of Cardinal Beaton in 1546.

Andrew Leslie married Grizel Hamilton, daughter of Sir James Hamilton of Finnart, and had issue. However, his eldest son James died before him. On Andrew Leslie's death in 1611 he was succeeded by his grandson John, James' only surviving son.
