  • Captain Sir John Norman Ide Leslie, 4th Baronet, is the eldest son of Sir Shane Leslie, 3rd Bt., and Marjorie Ide. He became the fourth baronet when his father died in 1971. He is popularly known as Sir Jack Leslie. Educated at Downside School and Magdalene College, Cambridge, he never married or had children. During World War II, he spent five years in POW camps. After the war he moved to New York and later travelled around Europe, settling in Rome. At the age of 78 he returned to his family's homestead, Castle Leslie and travelled to Ibiza for his 85th birthday in 2001. He inadvertently revealed the wedding location of Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills by admitting to reporters it was to take place in Castle Leslie, but that it was "a secret". In January 2012 he appeared in the TV special "Secrets of the Manor House", which discussed the Leslie family and Castle Leslie, among other manor homes.
