Index of first names

James Douglas, 5th Laird of Drumlanrig

 

 

 

 

 

James succeeded when his father was killed at the Battle of Kirtle, in 1484.


 

  • Death: 1498

    Father: William (4th Baron of Drumlanrig) Douglas
    Mother: Elizabeth, dau of Sir Robert Crichton of Sanquhar

    Marriage 1 Janet Scott, dau of Sir David Scott of Branxholme and Buccleuch, 5 Nov 1470 (1)

 

 

 

Notes:

1Some sources imply the date of Nov 1470 Janet to James Douglas, 5th Drumlanrig was not the marriage but a marriage contract.  As their son William, 6th Drumlanrig was seemingly born in 1481, this may be right. 

2.  Some sources show this daughter to be Agnes, who married Roger Grierson of Lag, son of the 4th Laird
