Though I have to say, I am not entirely happy with the last letter being an "e". It doesn't look like the others on the page.

Thanks for the suggestions .... It does look like Bethune fits but I too, am not so sure about an "e" at the end.

Has anyone come across this surname before ?

Just used Google and got my own answer ........ It's not a name I've come across before, especially in the Highlands, but according to google it's far more common than I thought.
