In the 1200s the ancestors of the Burnets of Barns settled in an area near Peebles in southern Scotland known as Burnetland. Most scholars agree that the Burnets of Barns are a branch of the Faringdoun Burnetts (Burnards), but a family history written in the 1880s claimed descent from a "Robertus de Burneville". At that time there was some friction between the Burnet of Barns branch of the family and the Chiefly branch, the Burnetts of Leys, which may explain the desire to claim a different ancestry.
This family was originally known as the Burnets of Burnetland. The first of the family to be known as Burnet of Burnetland was John Burnet (1400-1469). He married Marion, daughter of George Claverhill of that Ilk; through this marriage the family acquired the lands of Barns, from which they afterwards took their designation.
