    EARLDOM of ANGUS (SCT) (XX, 4) 1446

    George Douglas, Earl of Angus, brother, though often supposed to be uncle, and heir [of James Douglas, 3rd/19th Earl of Angus, dsp. in 1446, before 9 Sep]. He was one of the Commissioners to conclude a treaty with England, 1449 and 1459, and was Ambassador there 1451. He adhered to James II during the Douglas rebellion in 1454, and was rewarded with large grants of lands of that family. He was accounted the head of the party known as the "Old Lords" during the minority (1460) of James III. When Henry VI was a fugitive in Scotland in 1461, he engaged to give the Earl lands of the yearly value of 2000 marks, and to erect them into a Dukedom. Early in 1462 he obtained a victory over the English at Alnwick.

    He m., probably before 1446, Isabel, only daughter of Sir John Sibbald, of Balgony, co. Fife. He d. 14 Nov 1462, or, according to his son's retour, 12 Mar 1462/3, and was buried at Abernethy.

    George, 4th Earl of Angus

    The Earls of Angus remained loyal to James II even as their kinsmen, the Black Douglases, were making war on him. George, 4th Earl of Angus led the King's Army against his kinsman, James, 9th Earl of Douglas, at the Battle of Arkinholm in 1455. The result was the end of the Black Douglases. After the battle an act of parliament gave Angus the lordship of Douglas with the original possessions of his ancestors in Douglasdale. The 4th Earl died in 1463.
