The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

(James David Douglas-Of course you may make use of whatever I write on the Douglas family. (I am counting on you to find the connection in England. Not only did Mary Douglas return to England but Elizabeth Douglas, widow of John Willett, as well, returned to England.)

I shall continue with the Stringer connection.

Mary Stringer, Stephen Stringer, and Col John Stringer, were siblings. Lt Col William Andrews' first wife was Susannah -- Susannah and William Andrews had several children, one, a daughter named Susannah who married Stephen Stringer, William Andrew's first wife died before 1657 and William married Mary Stringer, Their first child was Mary Andrews, second was john Andrews, who died before April 1678, third was Andrew Andrews who married Elizabeth Johnson and had issue. Fourth was Anne. Col William Andrews died in 1655 in Northampton Co, Virginia. Mary Stringer, widow of William Andrews married, by 20 June 1657, William Smart in Northampton Co Virginia. For references see Adventures of Purse and Person Virginia 1697-1625, 1987, pages 75 and 76 under ANDREWS. William Smart and Mary, the widow and executrix, confirm the dec'd gifts to his children -John, Andrew, Mary, and Ann. These were the children by Mary Stringer. William Smart and Mary Stringer had two children, a daughter, Sarah, who married John Tankred in Northampton Co, Virginia and John Smart.who married Tabitha Hill, Accomack Co, Virginia. See Wills, etc Accomack Co 1692-1715 page 481-Deposition " William Smart was brother to John Smart, her first husband, and Sarah Tankred was daughter of William Smart.'  Mary Smart , the wife of William Smart, died 19 feb 1659 After her mother's deat Mary Andrews was placed under the care of Lieu.

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?
