Hi Karen,

I'm Cara's sister. Just read a comment from Nigel Douglas letting us know that  Susanna Douglas b 1741 we had as Daniel Wells Douglas' mother is incorrect. Susannah Douglas b.1741 CW, married in 1770 John Jarvis of Greatworth. They had 2 children, James and Mary.

Our search continues for a Susanna Douglas in Byfield. So sorry about the wrong info. Thanks Karen.

Cheers,

Kim

Hi Karen, sorry was in a rush this morning. Yes, we do have John Douglas b 1829 in Byfield and his wife Mary Dury b 1833 in our ancestry tree, with daughter Sarah Elizabeth b 1857 - Sarah being your great grandmother, mother of William (you mentioned). Our direct line continues down from John's brother, Daniel Douglas b 1819 in Byfield. There were five siblings, Mary Ann b 1810, George b 1814, Daniel b 1819, Susanna b 1823 and John b 1829, their parents being Daniel Wells Douglas 1784-1863 and his wife Elizabeth Law 1790-1857. Daniel Wells Douglas was base born to Susanna Douglas b 1741 in Chipping Warden. We believe she was the daughter of George Douglas b 1727 (CW) and Anne Keen b 1703 (CW). They had eight children - George 1723-1723, Mary b 1725 (married William Cooper), George b 1727 (married Anne Pittom - George and Anne moved to Culworth and had eight children), Elizabeth b 1731, Thomas b 1733, Ann b 1736, Samuel b 1739 and Susanna b 1741. 

At the moment we're uncertain as to the father of Daniel Wells Douglas 1784-1863, base born to Susanna Douglas b 1741(aged 43 at time of Daniel's birth) pauper? Researching we discovered a Daniel Hobbs Wells b 1753 (Bletchley) in the area around her age. Still researching... 

Great to hear from you Karen, my sister Kim and I have been researching for quite a number of years. Any information you might have would be greatly appreciated. 

Cheers Cara Douglas
