  • ID: I10440
  • Name: Eleanor DOUGLAS 1
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1319 in Liddesdale, Roxburghshire, Scotland
  • Death: ABT 1380
  • Note:
    Eleanor, only sister of 1st Earl of Douglas and widow of Alexander Bruce, 1st and last Earl of Carrick of the c1330 creation. [Burke's Peerage, p. 2831]

    Note: There is some confusion in Burke's Peerage as to Eleanor's ancestry. Pages 2831 & 418 name her "only sister of 1st Earl of Douglas". Yet page 2325 states that she is an illegitimate daughter of the 1st Earl by Margaret Stewart, Countess of Angus in her own right. I think her birth date precludes her being daughter of Margaret Stewart.
