Samuel Douglas, Windsor Castle Plantation, Jamaica

Posted on February 24, 2011 at 23:15 23 Comments

A recent discovery of family papers indicate a connection with Samuel Douglas of Windsor Castle Plantation Jamaica. I have a transcript of his will from which I can determine his immediate brothers and sisters and the negro slaves who were loyal to him and who were also beneficiaries. We understand he had immediate connections with Castle Douglas, Scotland and established the Douglas schools thee. Can anyone lead me to more information about this ancestor?. Thanks, Matthew Price

Welcome to our community network, Matthew.

Bob Henry is also researching this plantation.

Can you put any dates on this?  Samuel Douglas, brother of Sir William Douglas is the only person with Castle Douglas connections to come to mind who might be the person you are looking for.

But please also see Samuel Douglas on this page>>>

Yours aye,



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?
