Sir William's daughter, Sarah, inherited.  Sarah married Peter Wedderburn.  
They had a son, Alexander Wedderburn St Clair (1st Earl of Rosslyn) and a 
daughter, Janet.  Their daughter Janet married an Erskine.  When Alexander 
died, the son of Janet, Sir James St Clair Erskine, inherited.  Thus, the 
Erskine line is descended through the female line x 2.
