The son of Sir James "The Good", William succeeded his father as Lord of Douglas in 1330.

 

He is said to have had a brass seal, found at North Berwick, which bore a heart - the first Douglas to do so.  However, there is doubt that this was his seal.

 

He fell a Halidon Hill, 1333, leaving no heir.

 

The title passed to his uncle, Hugh, the 2nd son of William "le Hardi".
