The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

The heart of Sir James which carried the heart of Bruce, is next to the heart of Archibald "Bell the Cat" Douglas V earl of Angus, in a church in Douglas Scotland. The heart of the names spelled Douglas and Elliot is Hawick (Haik pronounced "hoik"). It is felt the Douglas earls of Angus, and sometimes called Angus, brought from a region in of before 1600, of the Ellot Flu (stream), called because of the "ellots" quadrilateral farmsteads-lots, sides measured with the Edinburgh standard the "el", therefore called Ellot. The "i" added from the French-southern English name "Eliot", so Ellot (Angus, Scotland) + Eliot (Breton, France) = Elliot. They were at first spelled by the Saxon name Elwald though called "ellot", people of the "ellot" region in Angus, Scotland. In area across the Ellot Water from Kelly Castle was and arbir/arbor-lot and orchard, and a church there was first called Arbir-lot, Angus, Scotland.

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?
