The John Douglass line

John was born, as far as we can tell, in St Pauls Covent Garden, Westminster, in London. He married Mary, whose details are unknown. They had 5 sons, and probably a number of daughters.

By the 3rd generation, the family had moved out of London to essex and Cambridgeshire. Not all prosperred - Susannah, b1817 found herself in Hinxton Union Workhouse, Essex, with 2 children being born there.

By the 4th generation, members of the family had migrated to Australia.

If you are interested in thise line of the Douglas family, please join us and contribute to our research. I look forward to meeting you!

I believe it is possible that my Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother may be related to this John Douglas. They died in Canada but came from somewhere in London. I have two people with exactly the same names and DOB getting married in Covent at St. Paul's. so it is most likely the same couple. The coincidence that your John Douglas was born in the same area mine were married sparks interest.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
