  • Note:
    Sir James Douglas, 7th of Drumlanrig; joined his cousin Sir Walter Scott, of Buccleuch June 1526 in trying to rescue James V from the Earl of Angus; knighted 1553, Warden West March 1553-4; married 1st 1513 (divorce) Margaret Douglas, sister of 6th Earl of Angus; married 2nd Christian, sister of 2nd Earl of Eglinto(u)n, and died 1578. [Burke's Peerage]


    James's first wife (with whom he had 3 daughters) was Margaret Douglas, sister of the 6th Earl of Angus, which marriage ended in divorce. I wonder whether the above rescue attempt of James V was connected to the divorce.
