[Burke's Peerage]


    From Doug Hickling [to someone else who had a diiferent Isabella as James' wife]

    "You show that the wife of James (2nd Earl of Douglas) Douglas was Isabella (of Durisdeer) Stewart whereas both SP and CP say that she was Isabel Stewart, daughter of King Robert II by Eupheme of Ross, but the name of the spouse is irrelevant because James's sons and a daughter were all illegitimate! This is why he granted the lands of Drumlanrig to his bastard son William and why James, the second Earl, was succeeded by his cousin Archibald Douglas (the Grim), bastard son of James, Lord of Douglas, called the good Sir James who was in turn the son of Sir William (le Hardi) Douglas."
