Son, given heavy responsibility, slept (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

slumbered

Here is my best explanation:

'slept' is the definition.

(this has been seen before in a quick crossword)

'son given heavy responsibility' is the subsidiary indication.

'son' becomes 's'.

'given heavy responsibility' becomes 'lumbered'.

's'+'lumbered'='slumbered'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Another definition for slumbered that I've seen is "Slept".)
