Margaret married Sir Thomas BURNETT 13th of Leys, Baronet, son of Alexander BURNET 12th of Leys and Katherine GORDON, about 1610.1 (Sir Thomas BURNETT 13th of Leys, Baronet was born about 1583 and died in 1653.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Sir Thomas Burnett was twice married, and had a family by each wife. His first wife, whom he married in 1610, was Margaret, eldest daughter of Sir Robert Douglas of Glenbervie, to whom allusions are made in the letters of his uncle, Duncan. Excellent advice is contained in these letters on the duties of a husband. In the same bed-chamber at Crathes where is the large oak bedstead of Sir Thomas's father and mother, already described, there is a handsome wardrobe with carved doors, which must have been of the date of the marriage of Thomas Burnett and Margaret Douglas. On one of the upper panels is the coat of Burnett with the initials T. B. ; on the other Burnett is impaled with the quartered coat of Douglas (the heart uncrowned) and Auchinleck, with initials M. D. On the two lower panels the four initial letters are united in a monogram. The issue of this marriage were two sons and two daughters."
