He was a younger son of John Beaton of Balfour in the county of Fife, and is said to have been born in 1494.

David Beaton was born in Markinch on the coast of Fife in the last decade of the 15th century and came from a family which produced some notable prelates of the church.
Beaton, in other ways, followed a fairly common pattern, however, by receiving a charge, as Commendator to the Abbey of Arbroath in 1523, through the influence of his uncle, James Beaton, who had recently become Archbishop of St Andrews.
Beaton's unpopularity came to a head in 1546, when, as part of his policy of eliminating heretics, he took on the challenge of the highly political and influential activist, George Wishart, and had him burned to death in St Andrews.

Beaton found that, in areas that had or gained rail service between 1971 and 1999, the use of more than 85 percent of the land did not change.
Beaton also found that while areas that had, gained or lost rail service are significantly denser than the region as a whole, density levels did not increase significantly in areas near new rail stations.
Beaton's findings do not mean that we should cancel planned rail lines or close down existing lines.

John of Balfour is the grandfather of Cardinal David Beaton, an advisor to Mary, Queen of Scots.
