Dr. Thomas Burnet was the son of Alexander Burnet, 11th Lord of Leys, and Katherine Arbuthnot, direct descendant of Robert II, King of Scotland and also Niall "of the nine hostages" King of Ireland. Alexander's son Duncan tells that one his father's ambitions was that his sons be men of learning and culture.

Son Thomas was born in Crathes Castle, Leys, and was educated about 1603 in University of Cambridge. He was employed as a doctor in Cambridge and Braintree, England, and was described as a "physician of eminence."

Brother Duncan was another doctor, brother Robert a minister, and brother Gilbert a Professor of Philosophy at Basle. Brother Alexander, a close friend of the Chancellor of Scotland, succeeded his father as the 12th Lord of Leys. It was by this Lord of Leys that the construction of Crathes Castle, begun by the 9th Lord, was finally finished.

Bishop of Salisbury Gilbert Burnet was the grandson of Alexander, the 12th Lord, making him the grandnephew of Alexander's brother, Dr. Thomas Burnett. Bishop Gilbert's son, Governor William Burnet, was Dr. Burnet's great grandnephew.
