  • The descendancy from King James II of Scotland come from my maternal great-grandfather Charles Berdeaux Griner’s father’s line. Charles Griner’s paternal 5x great-grandmother was Priscilla Burnett of Leys, she was a member of Burnett of Leys family and a documented great-granddaughter of Alexander Burnett, 11th Laird of Leys and the Hon. Katherine Arbuthnot of Fiddes, daughter of Robert Arbuthnot of Fiddes and Isabel Burnett of Leys. The Burnett of Leys’ ancestry are also recorded in the Peerage of The United Kingdom.
