There are records of Thorntons of that Ilk in the Mearns from the 13th century but the male line failed in the reign of David II and the lands and barony of Thornton passed to the Strachan family with the marriage of Sir James Strachan to Agneta, heiress [and I have assumed dau] of Valentine de Thornton who had received a charter "de terris de Thornetoun in lie Kincardin-Mernis" from Robert the Bruce in 1309.
Father: Valentine de Thornton
