  • ID: I19542
  • Name: Janet DOUGLAS 1
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1427 in Morton, Dumfriesshire, Scotland
  • Death: AFT 1489 in Bothwell Castle, Uddingston, Strathclyde, Scotland
  • Note:
    I am not sure of this wife, or at least her ancestry, but a dozen or so internet source have her as husband of Thomas Erskine, some even with a second husband of Patrick Hepburn, 1st Earl of Bothwell (this latter marriage in 1 Feb 1480/1 is given in Burke's Peerage with no mention of a prior marriage). The Janet (daughter of a 1459 marriage between James Douglas, 1st Earl of Morton & Joan Stewart, deaf-mute daughter of James I) that married Patrick is far too young to be the one marrying Thomas Erskine. I could be wrong because some people put that as the case.

    Keeping the ancestry in the family, Janet may be the daughter of James Douglas, 1st Earl of Morton's father, also a James Douglas.
