A collection of historical and genalogical records
Henry Douglas was born in the Yarrow Valley and has farmed all his life, mainly at Howahill near Bonchester Bridge. He is an enthusiast for Borders poetry and song and has won the Traditional Singing competition at Newcastleton. He has been very active in the Border common ridings and was Official Hawick Common Riding Song Singer from 1985 - 2000. He is a regular at his local Newcastleton Festival where he has won the traditional singing competition. He cites the fellow Borderer, the late Willie Scott, as his great friend and mentor.
(I think this biography is dated - current information would be welcome.)
Is he Jill Douglas's father? She is a sports commentator.
