Hi Eileen,
Do you know if the Burnetts of Leys )or any other Burnett branch) were involved in the Battle of Pinkie Hill.
Thanks,
Ray

Hi Ray,
Thank you for your question.
Only one, William Burnett of Camphill, west of Banchory, is said to have been killed at the Battle of Pinkie in 1547. No details are known but I would think that he probably was one of the followers of George Gordon, Earl of Huntly who led a section of the Scottish troops in the battle. Camphill was part of the lands held by the Burnetts of Leys but research is still ongoing as the exact family history of this William Burnett.
Best wishes
Eileen

Thank you Eileen.
Relatives of mine established a farm in the far south of New Zealand which they called Pinkie Hill, supposidely after the Battle of Pinkie . Just trying to fit another piece of the puzzle of whether we are descendants of the Burnetts of Leys, or the Burnetts of Barns, We have a bottle neck at Andrew Burnett c 1705 and some have gone one way and others the other way.
