The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Bothwellpark House is situated on the edge of Bothwell, just north of the River Clyde in South Lanarkshire, close to the remains of Bothwell Castle. It is a house of historical significance for the surrounding area and is understood to have been built as the Dower House for Bothwell Castle Mansion (now demolished). Designed by James Playfair and built in the late 18th century, the B-listed Georgian house is laid out over three stories in a symmetrical rectangular layout with wings added more recently.

The property last changed hands in 2018 and is returning to the market in 2024.  An excellent opportunity to bring it back into Douglas hands?

Bothwellpark Farm Cottage is already on the market.

Very nice! 

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?
