A collection of historical and genalogical records
I am researching my Douglas family roots.My ggg grandfather Peter Douglas (weaver) was born in 1776 Dunfermline, married Mariamne Mclay in 1804 in Dunfermline and his son, John Douglas born 1823 also in Dunfermline.
John Douglas served in the 93rd foot Argyll and Sutherland regiment and was at the battle of Lucknow (India) in 1857/58 as was his brother William Douglas.
John Douglas's medal can be seen on display at Stirling Castle.
John moved to Dundee, Angus in the 1850's. He retired from the Army and along with 2 of his sons set up the Dundee City Lamplighter company.
If anyone is researching my family or have any information about them, please get in touch, thank you
