    ---------------

    Raymond Montgomery, in his post to SGM, 14 Dec 1999, stated that William Douglas, of Douglas, was b. about 1305. The only William Douglas of Douglas who would fit was the son of James Douglas, who BP and CP said died unmarried 19 July 1333. (I assume since the Battle of Halidon Hill happened on that very date, that that is the cause--as confirmed by notes under his father James. A lot of Douglass died that day.) I believe that Margaret Douglas was illegitimate, which would fit with William being unmarried.
