A collection of historical and genalogical records
My wife's lineage in America traces back to John Forrester Forsyth Forrest 1524-1573,
in Scotland, whose spouse is listed as Lady Elizabeth Christian Douglas on a few thousand
trees on Ancestry. A couple more thousand trees including this site list her marriage to
Sir Alexander Falconer . There are several variations :Elizabeth Christina, Christina,
Christian etc., but DOB for all variations is (1525-1587). The sites also are split on parents:
Many trees and this site list her parents as Sir Archibald Douglas (1508-1570) & Lady
Agnes Keith (1503-1588), Others list parents as Lord Edmund Howard (1503-1538) &
Lady Joyce Colpepper (1480-1531) with no explanation of why there is a Lady Douglas
in the tree. I am a rookie researcher and would greatly appreciate any help with
clarifying this issue.
Sir Archibald Douglas, 2nd of Glenbervie (1508-1570) married Lady Agnes Keith (1503-1588). They appear to have had a large family with daughters Elizabeth and Christian/Christina.
Elizabeth Douglas married Sir Alexander Falconer of Halkerton (d 10.11.1587)
Christian Douglas married (mcrt 1555) Alexander Irvine, younger of Beltie
Which looks like your ancestor?
My collaborator on the Tree over here says it's Christian Christina Douglas, who did marry
Alexander Irvine but was first married to John Forrest(er) Forsyth. Date of birth she says from
Wikepedia was 1824, saw tree's on "my heritage" that collaborate most of this but had 1525-1587
which seem to be Elizabeth's info that has somehow been mixed collectively to identify both girls.
Marriage to John Forrest(er) Forsyth appears to also be 1546. Saw one tree that had Falconer/
Irvine marriages, again a mix of info. If you see anything else that might help please let me know
and thank you for your help! Have to go to work now! If you have a source you can use over there
check out John Forrest(er) Forsyth 1524-1573, children Marion Forrest Forsyth, 1544-1640,
David Forrest (Deforsyth) 1546-1588, William Alison aka Robert F. Forrest 1550-1609. See who
the spouse is?
