Glenbervie branch are Red Douglases
From book “Reminiscences of Whangarei “ by Alexander Rust (G G Granduncle) re Rusts descended from Glenbervie Black Douglases (what the book says)
But Bryan Crawford said this is a mistake in that its the Reds .. Douglases of Angus (red) eventually connect into the Black Douglases.
Glenbervie branch are Red Douglases descended from the earl of Angus. Details of the family are in the book
Letters My Grandfather Wrote Me, By Bryan Crawford" (great book I have this !)
HELP please with anyone whom can take me beyond here
Margaret Douglas Stewart (Married A Rust) is as far back I can go in the line
Margaret Douglas STEWART born abt 1761
married Alexander RUST (they had 8 children)
baptised 1792 St Nicholas
d 1879 Banff
Merchant/Grocer Married Margaret Douglas STEWART (could her parents be on the marriage cert?) we have no death cert ? or birth cert …where to find parents!?? maybe the 80 year old was the grandmother!?? mother of same name margaret douglas stewart?
I now have James Douglas b1600's, son John Douglas b 23.1.1708 Aberdeen, m Agnes Donald Born 9.4.1710 in Bourtie Aberdeen, daughter Margaret Douglass married George Tower, dau Margaret Douglas Tower married John Stewart shipmaster Aberdeen; John Stewart probably a son of Bonnie Prince Charlie/ Charles Edward Stuart.
we are descended from the Red Douglas , Earls of Angus , Glenbervie Douglas , any info would be grateful
we are apparently descended from Bonnie Prince Charlie, either John Stewart is his son (no record of parents b abt 1749 (maybe to do with the Lady Primrose taking a child from B PR Charlie) & daughter of John Stewart and Margaret Douglas (Tower) was Margaret Douglas Stewart 1794, probably the Granddaughter of Bonnie Prince Charlie (according to a letter I have)
its complex; theres 3 possible theories I have so far
Has anyone seen a John Douglas abt 1720 m. Agnes Donald abt…Continue
