A collection of historical and genalogical records
Hi, Currently researching Sir Robert Montgomerie of Skelmorlie Castle and his wife Dame Margaret Douglas. Can you please help me with dates of birth, marriage and death for them with sources? Have him born 1571 and dying in 1650. Married in 1593. Have her born in 1569, married at 24 in Nov 1593 (according to Nat Archives) and died 1624. Thanks.
This does not answer your question, but might be of interest: http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/Places/Churches&Abbeys/...
Thanks. I volunteer as a tour guide there and have come to learn that SRM hid a code in there. Seriously. Not at liberty to discuss it here until after 29th Nov. He sees her as a Goddess, Queen and Cardinal Virtue (Prudence). Clearly he adored her.
Oh! So you will know mare about it than I do!
And I have still not visited. Closed now til next year, I think?
Maybe you will post an update after 29th November?
Well, it has a hidden history linked to both Parliaments. Also Masonic. Biblical and others including alchemy and astronomy. Private tours? If you have enough bodies can be arranged over the Winter of groups less than 8. But you need to phone Largs Museum to arrange that a week in advance. We just had a meeting on it today.
They loved the tour. I also went to Rosslyn and found ALL the same elements/components/science/Celtic/Roman/Religion/Greek/metals/planets etc. DMD and SRM have been hugely underrated. I now know HOW he got the architect from Mary Queen of Scots Tomb to do DMD's. It is ALL in the building.
