Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Kemnay
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Kemnay, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. James Burnett, the next younger brother of Sir Thomas Burnett, 1st Baronet, married Elizabeth Burnett. Their second son, Thomas Burnett of Kemnay was the first laird of Kemnay. Thomas was a writer in Edinburgh and married Margaret Pearson, daughter of John Pearson, a merchant in Edinburgh. He purchased Kemnay House from Sir George Nicolson, Lord Kemnay, a Lord of Session. The older residence that the newer mansion replaced, was built by Sir Thomas Crombie, had been owned previously by the Auchinlecks and the Douglases of Glenbervie. I hope these photographs are of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
