The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

This 19th century depiction, by James William Edmund Doyle (1822–92), of Archibald Douglas, 4th Earl of Douglas on the left defending the mortally wounded Henry "Hotspur" Percy at the Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403 has an error in the engraving: "the mullets or stars in the first quarter of the Douglas shield should be argent."

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?
