The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Edward Douglas and Dumferline, Fife, Scotland

I have examined the Dunfermline of Fife, Scotland and come up with the following-

Edward Douglas, born 1560 married Jonet Sanders 23 August 1584. Their were two children- Margaret and Thomas. Thomas Douglas was born 8 Oct 1589. I suggest that there was another son, Edward Douglas, born 1590, who married Elizabeth Bowman. Why this Edward is not shown in the record I cannot say. I realize I am speculating but it seems we have two valid possibilities.

I note both Edward and Thomas here: http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/Lists/dunfermline_births.html
I thought that 'your' Edward was born 'in Scotland 14 Dec 1590'?
I have seen the note
Edward Douglas was born about 1561, in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland, United Kingdom. He married Jonet Sanders on 23 August 1584, in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. They were the parents of at least 1 son and 1 daughter.
I have not been able to verify the marriage.

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?
