Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
My great grandmother was Catherine Sholto Douglas Campbell Anderson and I have long wanted to find out where the "Sholto-Douglas Campbell" comes from. I was born a McDowall and at times this appeared in registers as McDougal. Unfortunately my parents and grandparents were all deceased when I decided to start researching the family and I have none whose surname was actually Douglas although my understanding is that Mac signifies son of Douglas. Family tracing goes through Ayrshire and down to Dumfries-shire. Please can anyone help me find out why my ancestor had "Sholto-Douglas Campbell" as her middle names since naming patterns usually put grandparents on both sides in as middle names. Thanks - Catherine
