A collection of historical and genalogical records
I have been asked to help trace the Douglas family in Norfolk, East Anglia, particularly the name variants Dagles, Dagley, Daglis, Daglos, Duglasse. As I have recently been working on the Palestinian variant Daghlas, this looked to be an interesting project.
And it is interesting and frustrating!
I have found a 15th century Richard Duglas, both Junior and senior who served as jury men on a number of occasions, but not a lot else.
Thomas Dagley, son of Wlm (an abbreviation?) was born in Potter Heigham, Norfolk. Thomas married and died in Hempstead Norfolk in 1631 - by then he is named on documents as Thomas Duglasse!
Is anyone else working on their East Anglian ancestors?
