The chief offenders wer brought to trial in October 1490, and on 9 January 1491, Lord Drummond entered into a bond with Tullibardine to make reparation for the misdeeds of his second son, then an outlaw, for the destruction of Monivaird church, and the slaughter of the King’s subjects. Ten years later, the whole matter was brought to an amicable conclusion between the two families.

Sir William was granted by royal letters the offices of Steward, Forester, and Coroner within the earldom of Strathearn and lordship of Balquihidder, 18 January 1482-83. He sat frequently in Parliament, and was one of the commissioners for a treaty with the English, and with other ambassadors had a safe-conduct for six months into England, 22 May 1495, and in 1507 was exonerated from attending courts or the King’s host on account of his age.

He had a charter of Trewin, and the loch and isle of Dry Isle, etc., 17 April 1506, and a new charter, 2 March 1511-12, of the Bordland of Glencoy in the barony of Tullibardine, which had been apprised for £100, a sum adjudged against him for the non-entry therein of one called Mackintire, which sum at the instance of the Earl of Argyll was remitted, and the said land re-incorporated in the barony of Tullibardine.
