The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

In June of 1669 Elizabeth Douglas was not yet married. See will John Martyn, Merchant-16 June 1669-29 Dec 1669-this turned out to be an administration and John Willett qualified as administrator-Orders 10 1664-1674- Of London and bound for England on the ship Providence of London, ready to sail-in regard of the love and affection I bear for Miss Elizabeth Douglas daughter-in-law to Rev Thomas Teackle and with regard of Mary Douglas now at sea all my land in Virginia now in the hands of Rev Thomas Teackle-" This is the only mention of a Mary Douglas. Could this have been a sister of Lt Edward Douglas and who came over to assist the family in a time of need?

John Willett and Elizabeth Douglas had two children-William born in 1671 and Martha born in 1673. To be cont.

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?
