I noticed in a post a few days ago, that you are a descendant of Nancy Maria Douglass, daughter of Thomas Pratt Douglass and Eliza Margaret Stevens. (If I read that post correctly.)  So I just joined to connect with you. 

I am a descendant of Nancy Maria Douglass's sister Arathusa.  I have pictures of Nancy, who my grandfather called Aunt Nan (though in reality she would have been his great Aunt.)  I also have a picture of the Hough and Douglass family taken in Boonville in 1906.  I'm happy to send you digital copies.  Send me a private message with your email address if you are interested.

Thank you for your recent post re William Douglas 1610.
I had forgotten about the London aspect!  It would be good if some of the descendants could fund further research.

Archibald Douglas 13th of Cavers was born c.1667, the 2nd son of Sir William Douglas of Cavers (d. 1676) by Catherine, daughter of William Rigg of Aithernie, Fife married Anna, daughter of Francis Scott of Gorrenberry, Roxburgh (although some dispute this).

Adderstonelee, an isolated farm above the Slitrig valley, part of the former lands of Adderstone, was purchased in 1750 from Francis Scott of Gorrenberry by Capt. John Douglas, brother of Archibald, Laird of Cavers.

Otherwise, I can find no Douglas connection.

Rub shoulders with the Douglas. Gorrenberry is near lands of William Douglas of Cavers, which Bothwell obtained, around the Hermitage Castle.

Note; Infinis, Windy Edge has a planned wind farm of land of Braidley with was of William Douglas of Cavers.

Am of the Daniel Elliot Cluster of  R-U106, and a couple of write ups on Gorrenberry next to Braidlie where Infinis Windy Edge wind farm place on Hermitage hill near Hermitage Castle. Here are the page links;

Being of a Daniel Elliot cluster U106  S12025, could likely be of the same group and the same region of Norfolk.

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?
