Hello Jason,Just wanted to let you know I have a few e-mails to various archive resources in Scotland about the origin of villages named Barnhill.There are several in Scotland. Of particular interest are the Barnhill villages near Dundee,Perth,Glasgow & Blantyre as our ancestors lived near these areas. My direct link is to David Barnhill from near Dundee. It may be possible these villages were named for our ancestors.Correct me if I am wrong, but I have yet to find a Barnhill relative near Elgin as stated in histories.Also of interest is a man named "de Burneval" who was an aide to King David of Scotland in the 14th or 15th century,much earlier than the three brothers were said to come to Scotland. Could it be our line is actually derived from him? More research to follow. Thanks,Mark P.S. The Burnett family is said to derive from this de Burneval,so they have more info in their clan website.
