He became the 9th Earl of Ellesmere as a young man with English thoughts, but with a Highlander fire, so he could go back to his roots as he is, actually, secret son of Jamie Fraser.

William knows Fraser not as his biological father but as the person who was in his first years and who, in one way or another, taught him some things, like horseback riding.

However, his presence now could be detrimental to the pair of main characters, as neither of them is aware that the boy is Jamie’s son, so there could be some problems.
