A collection of historical and genalogical records
Sorry for the late reply but we just moved house (again). None of those names come up in my Family Finder, but if you are descended from the Earls of Angus I am guessing that your male relatives are haplogroup R1b. I am an I1a. Best of luck with your searching.
Yes Rb1 RM269 on my Paternal side (which also has Douglas and Sinclair , Stewart) A rare subclade , is being tested for now as we are Oliphant rather than Stoddard on my uncle William Leslie Stoddard Ydna results, requested by the Sinclair DNA project that we get the SNP pack , (the Comptons have the same rare Subclade) so I'm hoping these results will help solve the mystery around Oliphant (of 38 YDNA matches there were 18 Oliphant and no Stoddard!?)
NOTE: the was a Elizabeth OLIPHANT married DOUGLAS (earl of Angus
Oliphant can be many different surnames , as they were Landed gentry (is that best what to say William? when talking of Families with many surnames in a line?)
on my paternal , It appears I have Earls of Angus and Sinclair too along with royal Stewart ; so it all gets very confusing maybe Leslie and Morton (= Martin / Morgan ) also
so I could match numerous lines of Douglas and Douglass! ( not sure exactly where the paternal ones start in our tree yet though
unfortunately our last living Maternal Douglas was Margaret Douglas M Tower (royal Stewart descendants down from there)
