A collection of historical and genalogical records
Another former Douglas property has come onto the market.
Strathenry House was built for Robert Douglas Esq. local landowner, and is described in the New Statistical Account as "a very handsome building, in the style of the old English manor house of Queen Elizabeth's time".
Strathendry Castle, now superseded by the modern mansion, is a late 16th century tower which has been restored, occupied, and in a good state of preservation. The property was owned by Strathendry of that Ilk from an early date, till 1496, when it passed to the Forresters, and 200 years later, to the Douglases, then to the Clephanes in 1882.
The Douglas family of Strathenry, or Strathendry, is one that has not yet had a detailed article - maybe someone can help?
