A collection of historical and genalogical records
Edward Douglas, Jr. was born about 1643, When he was eighteen he received a patent for the full 3700 acres that had been granted to his father. This was in the year1661.This tells me that if Edward Douglas, Jr., were to die he would leave either a will or there would be an administration of his estate. It is evident that Edward remained with his sisters as well as his father-in-law until 1680 when we have evidence that Elizabeth widow of John Willett, left Northampton Co and took a ship back to England. It becomes obvious that her brother, Edward Douglas, Jr., left the county with her. Details of this departure will be given when I provide details on Elizabeth Willett.
