    • Lionel was an expert on the Loch Ness and Loch Fadder monsters, publishing a book on the subject. Quoting from Elisabeth Kehoe, she says he had considerable powers as a mystic and was appointed 'Arch Druid of the Western Isles'!"

      He also wrote

      'Wilderness Trails on Three Continents', 'Travel and big game hunting, including bear, elephant, cheetal, blackbuck and bison in India, tsaine in Burma, lion and rhino in Africa. There was no hunting in Labrador, but there is a good account of canoe travel through the wilderness with Montagnais Indians.'

  • Notes 
    • There is a suggestion on p.195 of Elisabeth Kehoe's book 'Fortune's Daughters' that there was a possibility that Leonie Leslie had an affair with Arthur Duke of Connaught, 3rd and favourite son of Queen Victoria. She and the Duke were apparently close friends for over forty years and exchanged hundreds of letters. In respect of Lionel, Kehoe writes:
       
      "While the duke and duchess were in Ireland, they naturally saw much of the Leslies. Occasionally the duke visited on his own. In June 1900, Leonie had a fourth son, Lionel. He was fair and blue-eyed, like Jack Leslie, and also like the duke. If the duke and Leonie were having an affair, it is possible that Lionel was the duke's son. There is no evidence of this, however, and Jack seems to have treated Lionel in the same pleasant but offhand manner that characterized his relationship with his other boys. It is difficult to imagine that Leonie would have felt comfortable having the child of a close friend's husband, but this depends, of course, on how she perceived her own behaviour - which was always perfectly discreet and perfectly respectful."
