Major Life Events

     Thomas Burnett married Margaret Johnston on 8 November 1608 at St. Nicholas Church, Aberdeen, Scotland.1 He was killed on 13 September 1644.

Children of Thomas and Margaret:

Narrative

     At this point in history many of the Burnetts appear to have been merchants, Thomas among them. They were prominent people in Aberdeen and the records of St. Nicholas contains frequent references to Burnett names associated with donations in support of various aisles of the church. Church records indicate that the Burnetts were landowners within the developing Aberdeen and were building townhouses in the prime sites of the day such as Guestrow, Shiprow, and Schoolhill.2

     Thomas and his brother Andrew, Burgesses of Aberdeen, were killed during Montrose's Battle of Justicemills, or the subsequent rout of Aberdeen, on 13 September 1644. Over 150 burgesses and several members of the Council lost their lives. In St. Mary's Aisle of St. Nichlas Church, Thomas' and Andrew's names are inscribed on a large stone which has, as a centerpiece, a shield with the Arms of Leys. Also inscribed on the stone is the name Alexander Burnett who died in 1685, son to Thomas.2
