About Thomas Scott

Biographical Summary

"SCOTT or SCOT, THOMAS, Lord Petgormo (1480?–1539), Scottish judge, was second son of Sir William Scott of Balwearie [q. v.] and Janet, daughter of Thomas Lundy. Thomas obtained a charter under the great seal of the lands and house of Petgormo on 2 Jan. 1526 (Douglas, Baronage, p. 304). On 19 Nov. 1532 he was appointed ordinary judge in place of his father, with the title of Lord Petgormo. He was a great favourite with James V, who made him justice clerk in 1535. He died in 1539. According to the legend related by Knox in his ‘History of the Reformation,’ Scot visited the king at Linlithgow on the night of his own death ‘with a company of devils,’ announcing that he (Scot) was ‘adjudged to endless torment’ (Knox, History, ed. 1644, p. 25)."
