The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I found Jean DOUGLAS b 1812 on a fragment of the 1821 census at Edenburt Co. Cavan.  She was shown as the daughter of 30 yr old widow, Ann Douglas, along with her brothers Alexander (aged 6) Robert (aged 4) and John (aged 2).

Jane/Jean went to Whitehaven in Cumbria and John went to Liverpool, Lancashire.  In 1836, Jane married Thomas BENNET at St Bees, Cumberland.  

Unfortunately, as Ann was a widow, her husband remains unidentified but he must have been alive in 1818 assuming that John was really his son (and there is no reason to suspect otherwise).

Any links or information welcomed.

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?
