The Douglas Archives

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.

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?
