A collection of historical and genalogical records
I have some leads on the Douglas family of Norfolk. Much of it has not been substantiated but I feel we are on the right track. I shall present this and then return to our Lt Col Edward Douglas.
Edward Douglas born 1658, Norwich, Norfolk, England, died 1644, married in 1590. His wife was born in 1570. Then, I have Elizabeth Douglas, born about 1623. Last I have Henry Pendleton, son of George and Elizabeth, was born 12 August 1580, at Mancroft, Norwich Norfolk and died 15 July 1635 at Saint Stephens Norwich, married Elizabeth Douglas in 1649, who died in 1708.
Henry Pendleton and his second wife, Elizabeth Douglass, had two sons, Nathaniel and Phillip Pendleton. Nathaniel and his brother, Phillip, came to Virginia. Nathaniel Pendleton was a clergyman. His brother, Phillip Pendleton married Isabella Hurt in 1682 and they had children. Descendants of this line are living. Further researchis needed on our line. I feel strongly that our line descends from Edward Douglas born 1568 in Scotland and was the son of a James Douglas. This is but a hypothesis and has yet to be demonstrated.
