About Alexander Burnet, 8th of Leys

alternate dates submitted: b. 1470, d. September 2, 1520

Alexander 8th of Leys probably never held the title of laird as he died in 1525/6 and predeceased his father, Alexander 7th of Leys (who died in 1529).

The title of laird would have passed directly to his son Alexander (9th of Leys, laird from 1529 - 1574).
