Text source

Duncan Burnett was a Scot from Aberdeen who registered at Helmstadt University as 'Duncanus Bornot Aberdonensis' on 18 May 1599. When he moved to Heidelburg and matriculated there on 18 April 1603, he did so as 'Danus' indicating that the nationality represented the location he had just come from rather than his own actual identity.
