 Jack, there's a golf course where Westburn House stood, all that remains is an old stone doocot (dovecot). The lairds of Westburn were Hamilton's & a troop of horse would probably have been raised amongst the gentry.
The problem with DNA is that while it's a source back to Scotland for folks in the States it's not that common here. Should maybe be compulsory?  ;D

Skoosh.

Sean, in one of life's ironies, I live in Worcester County, in the state of Massachusetts, worked in the City of Worcester here for about 12 years, and was a member of the Worcester Rotary Club when we hosted the Rotary Club from Worcester, UK back in the 1990s.  I used to live about 25 miles from the Historic Marker for David... but didn't know of its existence at the time.  I do need to make the drive up to see it this summer.

Jack that Marker is an absolutely wonderful memorial to your ancestor.
If it was me I'd wait until dark, replace it with a cardboard cut-out and take the marker home.
You know it makes sense  ;D
Lawrie name in Fife (and elsewhere) with all its various spellings.

The old road over the original Powick bridge is still there but parts of it now have been lost. This occurred when a partial ringroad was built to skirt around Worcester's westside
