Douglas and his birth

On November 15, 2015 I gave the birth of Edward Douglas with an age of 40 in 1640 which was recorded in Northampton County, Virginia in "Orders, Wills, and Deeds"#1 page 218, 1612-1640, "age 40 in 1640". At the time I thought this was a reference to Edward Douglas, husband of Isabella Dale. I, now, realize this is a reference to the father of Edward Douglas, husband of Isabella. This Edward Douglas was married to Elizabeth Bowman, and, undoubtedly son of Edward Douglas, born 1560, husband of…See More

Edward Douglas and Dumferline, Fife, Scotland

I have examined the Dunfermline of Fife, Scotland and come up with the following-Edward Douglas, born 1560 married Jonet Sanders 23 August 1584. Their were two children- Margaret and Thomas. Thomas Douglas was born 8 Oct 1589. I suggest that there was another son, Edward Douglas, born 1590, who married Elizabeth Bowman. Why this Edward is not shown in the record I cannot say. I realize I am speculating but it seems we have two valid possibilities.See More

Edward Douglas, Junior, and Senior

Looking back at the will of Edward Douglas of Northampton County, Virginia, we see a reference to Cousin Edmund Boman/Bowman of Accomack County, Virginia. I, now, realize that Edward Douglas' mother had to have the surname Boman and be a 1st cousin. This, also, meant there had to be an additional generation which makes Lt. Colonel Edward Douglas a Junior. This resolves our problems. Based on John Martyn's observation in 1669 Edward Douglas, Junior's wife was Elizabeth Bowman. The pieces now…See More

lt Colonel Edward Douglas and his antecedents

Edward Douglas journeyed to Holland, probably. in the period 1610-1615. He did not join the Scottish Brigade as I have explored that possibility which revealed no connection. In 1610 it was estimated that there were 10,000 Scots living in Rotterdam alone. It was certainly a hub for global commerce and Edward Douglas was there caught up in commercial activity. He returned to Scotland around 1630. We, next take sight of Edward now married to Isabella Gaynor, daughter of Thomas Gaynor, in 1632.…See More

continuation of maternal side of the Douglas family

I was presenting a possible line of relationship with the Pettus family. I shall stand my ground and find this not to be the case. It was enticing to think such a relationship would be true since the founding father was the founder of the East India Company and his son Sir John had a daughter named Isabella who died young and was buried in Saint Jude's Church. I thought that it was possible that Sir Thomas, son of the founder had 20 children and named one in memory of the Isabella who died at…See More

Good to hear from you, Henry.

Probably most of the pills we have to take are not all good!  But I don't like the sound of yours.

Henry

I am following your post with great interest. There are early researchers of my line that have tried to connect Col Edward Douglas 1713-1795 to Lt Col Douglas line through his son Edward. I had thought this impossible because I thought Edward Jr had dird without issue. Your recent blog comments seem to suggest otherwise. I had changed my focus from Lt Col Douglas to a James Douglas, of Kincardineshire as a possible father candidate for Col Edward Douglas. Perhaps there is something to the idea that he wss descended from Lt Col Douglas. You have renewed my interest. Thank you. My email address is davidd1103@gmail.com. I will continue to follow your blog with great interest.

Welcome, Henry. Hopefully someone will know Colonel Edward.
 
 
 

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?
