The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Historic Artist Andrew Hillhouse, 1964-2018

Several of the illustrations used in the Douglas Archives were created by Andrew Hillhouse, who died on Sunday 16th April 2018.

Andrew worked as a technician in the School of Landscape Architecture, ESALA, Edinburgh University. He drew, painted and illustrated in his spare time depicting, predominantly but not exclusively, various periods of Scottish history.

Whilst much of his work was used for book covers, internal illustrations, CD covers, advertisements, publicity, marketing and campaign material, his Douglas illustrations have been used by Douglases worldwide.

Andy's father and brother both died within weeks of being diagnosed with their particular types of cancer, so he was philosophical about his prognosis and hospitalisation. 

Our sympathy go to his wife, Vicky and son, Gus.

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?
