The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Archibald Douglas, 4th Earl of Douglas, Duke of Touraine, is buried with his son, Sir James Douglas in the Choir of Saint Gatien's Cathedral, Tours. It is they who were killed at Verneuil in 1424.

It seems likely that the two William Douglases commemorated in the nave of Orléans Cathedral Sainte-Crois, Sir William Douglas of Drumlanrig and William Douglas of Kinross, helped Joan of Arc at Orleans, and died there.

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?
