A collection of historical and genalogical records
General Sir Howard Douglas, 3rd Baronet of Carr, GCB, GCMG, FRS (January 23, 1776 – November 9, 1861) was a British military officer born in Gosport, England, the younger son of Admiral Sir Charles Douglas and Sarah Wood, and a descendant of the Earls of Morton. He was a British general and colonial administrator.
In 1797, while in Quebec City, Douglas fathered a daughter, Margaret (or Marguerite), but did not marry the mother, Catherine Normandeau. In 1799, he returned to England, and in July of that year he married Anne Dundas, daughter of James Dundas of Edinburgh. They had nine children, Major Charles Douglas, James Dundas Douglas, Howard Douglas, General Sir Robert Percy Douglas, 4th Baronet of Carr, Reverend William Frederick Douglas, Ann Douglas, Christina Douglas, Sarah Mary Harcourt Douglas, and Mary Douglas.
I have been sent a photograph of his daughter Lucy with her mother, Ann Douglas (Nee Dundas), wife of Howard Douglas.
My problem is that I can find no trace of Lucy listed amongst Howard's children.
Lucy married James Graham (below) (Born Sept 2 1803 - died June 19 1864) in about 1835.
Who are they?
