Do you have the history of the Douglas family that married into our branch. It has been traced and documented back to France in early early times." So 5 down and 8 to go, and I will try and get back to them at the end of this coming week. These are the most modern ones written in roman script. The remaining ones are 17th C Scottish secretary hand so are going to take a little longer. They are quite difficult so I may only be able to do a few at a time. Nothing much out of them so far, obviously Robert Bogle's is more detailed because he drew it up before he died. However I would imagine if alexander himself is going to get a direct mention it may be in one of the late 17thC ones I have also checked the Aberdeen and St Andrews university records but no Alexander of the correct date. Have not managed to get hold of records for Edinburgh and Glasgow going far enough back yet.
