The name Pitcairn, or Pitcairns, is a local one, coming from the lands of Pitcairn in the Parish of Leslie, Fife, which are claimed to be one of the oldest in the ancient Kingdom.
William de Petkaran was a juror at some point before 1249 in Dunfermline, and John de Petcarn, or Pitcairn, was given, by Sir Hugh de Abernethy, the lands of Innernethie in a 1250 charter.
