BURNETT, Thomas of Sauchen
- Born: About 1623
- Marriage (1): BURNETT, Bessie in 1648
"It was probably with the death of Alexander, Matthew Lumsden's great grandson by 1672 that the Lumsden connection with Tillycairn ended. At some stage the property seems to have been in the hands of Thomas Burnett of Sauchen and to add to the confusion Tilleycairn in the parish of Cluny is sometimes confounded with a Farquhar property of the same name in the parish of Glentanar."
from Tillycairne Castle, Aberdeenshire 1
Thomas married Bessie BURNETT, daughter of Reverend Mr William BURNETT of Sauchen, Minister of Kinairney and Catherine REID, in 1648. (Bessie BURNETT was born about 1616.)
The contract of marriage was drawn up in 1642.
