The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Are you a descendant of the Douglas families of Bonjedward or Timpendean?

Douglas of Bonjedward has featured in a couple of recent articles, the Skirmish at Sclaterford, which followed the disaster at Flodden, in 1513, and the Raid of the Redeswire in 1575.

However, linking the correct Douglas to these events is not proving easy.

I am grateful to Sally Douglas for re-visiting this, but maybe others have researched their families and have some additional evidence?

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?
