Parentage of Hugh Douglass 1713-1780

Started this discussion. Last reply by William Douglas May 24. 4 Replies

I am having doubts about the parentage of Hugh Douglass born 1713 in New Cumnock, Scotland.  In Ancestry, lots of folks (including me) linked him to James Douglas 13th Lord of Mains 1691-1741.  But I…Continue

"A lot of people have put this Hugh Douglas in my family tree but I don’t think he fits. My Hugh came from Scotland to Virginia in 1740 and died around 1780 if what I found is right."

Parentage of Hugh Douglass 1713-1780

I am having doubts about the parentage of Hugh Douglass born 1713 in New Cumnock, Scotland.  In Ancestry, lots of folks (including me) linked him to James Douglas 13th Lord of Mains 1691-1741.  But I have researched and can find no definitive proof that James ever had a son name Hugh.  The Peerage doesn't list him and neither does the Douglas of Mains archive.  Nor does it list James' wife as Jean/Jane Farquhar, but as Isobel Corbet. I did find a James Douglass abt 1690 and Jean/Jane Farquhar…See More

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?
