Fenton Barns

Lothians: About 3.5 miles south-west of North Berwick, on minor roads east of B1345 or west of B1347, at or near Fenton Barns.


Ruin or site   NT 515816 [?]   OS: 66   EH39 5AN


Site of tower or old house, which does not appear to be marked on Blaeu’s map of The Lothians. The present farmhouse dates from the middle of the 19th century, but stands close to an older building. ‘Fentonbarns’ is marked on Adair’s map of East Lothian, although it is not given much prominence. Also see Fenton Tower.
  Master John Preston of Fenton Barns is on record in the 1590s and 1600s, and he was the Majesty’s Collector General and Treasurer to James VI, and a Senator of the College of Justice. The property went to the Coopers, and Andrew Cooper of Fenton Barns is mentioned in 1649, and then to Sir John Nisbet of Dirleton, when a manor place is mentioned in a ratification of 1669.
