William Douglas, 10th Earl of Angus, buried Église de Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris.

William Douglas, 10th Earl of Angus (1552 – 3 March 1611) was the son of William, the 9th Earl (1533–1591). He was a direct descendant of King James I through his paternal grandmother, Lady Agnes Keith, a daughter of William Keith, 3rd Earl Marischal.He studied at St. Andrews University and joined the household of the Earl of Morton. Subsequently, while visiting the French court, he became a Roman Catholic, and was in consequence, upon his return, disinherited and placed under restraint.A fine memorial was erected to his memory in the Chapelle de Sainte-Thérèse, within the Abbey Church.

Can anyone help with this inscription?

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?
