"Not far from [Palace Green] there lately stood, in a garden, a fragment of wall which was known as 'The Burleigh Walls'. It was the remains of a dwelling-house which belonged to the Balfours of Burleigh, and which in the times of King James [VI] sheltered that stirring and sturdy family, then in the sunshine of their prosperity."
