Families covered: Douglas of Tilquhilly (Tilquhillie or Tilwhilly)
[A draft pedigree on this family was originally provided on 17.11.06 within Temp27.]

                               
David Douglas, 1st of Tilquhilly, Kincardineshire (a 1494, d before 08.1526)
TSP (Douglas of Morton) specifically considers and discounts a report ("in a recent publication, The Book of the Irvings, 1907, by Col. J.B. Irving of Bonshaw") that the founder of the family of Douglas of Tillyquilly (about 1450) was a son of James, 2nd Lord of Dalkeith, called John ("there is no evidence on record of this John") and goes on to report that James (2nd Lord of Dalkeith) "had issue, so far as is known, one son", his successor James who became the 1st Earl of Morton. TSP, in the 1914 edition edited by Sir James Balfour Paul, reports that Sir Robert Douglas, in his (the original) editions of that great work, inserted an Archibald as son of James, 1st Lord of Dalkeith, who "is said to be the ancestor of the Netherdale, Tilliquhilly and Inchmarlo families, but no evidence of this Archibald has been found on record." The connection we show is as reported by BLG1952.
