A collection of historical and genalogical records
Can anyone help with the connection of James Douglas born 25th September 1768 at Springwood Park
to Admiral Sir James Douglas(1704-1787) of Springwood Park.
Sir James Douglas was married three times and his first wife was a Dutch lady called Uranie Marteilhe.
My James Douglas was a Major in the East India Company and also married to a Dutch lady
Atcha Babee. His four children were born in Bombay.
He died at Edenside Kelso in 1819 I think, because his will was proved that year.
His letters to the India office D/167 Folios183-185 formally requesting his retiral, dated 1809.
Also a letter D/171 Folios 175-177 applying to become recruiting officer for the Glasgow District dated 1811.
Any information would be most appreciated.
