Opportunity to acquire a former Douglas property

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Strathendry Castle, now superseded by the modern mansion, is a late 16th century tower which has been restored, occupied, and in a good state of preservation.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?

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?
