BURNET, Robert, Canadian clergyman, born in Ladykirk, Berwickshire, Scotland, in June, 1823. He was educated at Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and received ordination as a Presbyterian minister in 1852. Soon afterward he went to Canada as a missionary, was stationed at Hamilton, and called to the pastorate of St. Andrew's church there. Here he remained for twenty-five years, and established a flourishing congregation. In 1876 he took charge of St. Stephen's church, London, and remained in connection with it for three years, when he accepted a call from the Pictou, Nova Scotia, Presbyterian church. As a preacher, Mr. Burner is distinguished for his clear, well-arranged sermons, which are often eloquent in the highest degree, and always delivered extemporaneously. He is also well known in a widely different sphere of action, being regarded as an authority on the subjects of scientific agriculture and fruit-culture. While a resident of Ontario he was a member of the Dominion and Provincial boards of agriculture, of the Entomological society, and the Fruit-growers' association. Papers by him on scientific subjects have been published in the "Transactions" of the American pomological society.
