23001 «b»David Hume (1558-1629) was a Scottish historian and political theorist. He was born at Godscroft, a farming hamlet 2 miles to the north of Abbey St. Bathans , in the Lammermuir Hills , Berwickshire .
A major intellectual figure in Jacobean Scotland, his work, De Unione Insulae Britannicae was published in London in 1605. It is a study in how to effect the closer political union of Scotland and England. With surprising foresight, he suggests a super-national parliament with regional assemblies.
Hume was a partisan panegyricist of the Douglas family. He was a grandson of Alison Douglas, herself a grand-daughter of Archibald Douglas, 5th Earl of Angus . His chief patron was William Douglas, 11th Earl of Angus , later the 1st Marquess of Douglas.

Andrew Blackadder, the proprietor of the estate, married a daughter of the house of Johnston of Johnston, ancestor of the earls of Annandale, and had two sons, Robert and Patrick. Robert, the elder son, espoused Alison Douglas, fourth daughter of George, Master of Angus, and sister of Archibald, earl of Angus. He followed the standard of the Douglases at Flodden in 1513, and was slain with his father-in-law and two hundred gentlemen of the name of Douglas, on that disastrous field, leaving a widow and two daughters, Beatrix and Margaret, who, at the time, were mere children. «/b»

23003 «b»Elizabeth Villiers«/b» (c. 1657 - April 19 , 1733 ), was the daughter of Colonel Sir Edward Villiers of Richmond and his wife, Frances Howard. Her maternal grandfather was Theophilus Howard, 2nd Earl of Suffolk . Her mother was governess to the princesses Mary and Anne , and secured place and influence for her children in Mary's household.
Elizabeth was the mistress of the King, William of Orange . Her brother Edward , afterwards created 1st Earl of Jersey , became master of the horse, while her sisters Anne and Katherine were among the maids of honour who accompanied Mary to The Hague on her marriage. Elizabeth Villiers became William's acknowledged mistress in 1680 ; in 1685 rumours of William's infidelity were exploited by James II in an attempt to cause a split between the prince and his wife Mary. After his accession to the English crown he settled on her a large share of the confiscated Irish estates of James II. This grant was revoked by parliament in 1699 .
Shortly after Mary's death, William, motivated, it is said, by his wife's expressed wishes, broke with Elizabeth Villiers. On 25 November 1695 Villiers was married to her cousin, Lord George Hamilton , fifth son of the 3rd Duke of Hamilton . The husband was gratified early in the next year with the titles of Earl of Orkney , viscount of Kirkwall and Baron Dechmont. Elizabeth, now countess of Orkney, served her husband's interests with great skill, and the marriage proved a happy one. She died in London on April 19, 1733.
Lady Orkney retained a degree of social importance in the Hanoverian era, and was hostess to both George I and George II at her estate at Cliveden , Buckinghamshire .

23004 «b»George Norman Douglas«/b» (December 8, 1868 - February 7, 1952) was a British writer, now best known for his 1917 novel «i»South Wind«/i».
Norman Douglas was born in Thüringen, Austria (his surname was registered at birth as «i»Douglass«/i»). His mother was Vanda von Poellnitz. His father was John Sholto Douglas (1845-1874), manager of a cotton mill, who died when Norman was about six. Norman was brought up mainly at «u»Tilquhillie «/u», Deeside, his paternal home. He was educated at Uppingham School England, and then at the Gymnasium school in Karlsruhe. Norman's paternal grandfather was the 14th Laird of Tilquhillie. Norman's maternal great-grandfather was General James Ochoncar Forbes (1765-1843), 18th Lord Forbes.
He started in the diplomatic service in 1894 but was placed on leave in unclear circumstances (probably relating to sexual scandal). In 1897 he bought a villa in Naples. The next year he married Elizabeth Louisa Theobaldina FitzGibbon, a cousin (their mothers were sisters, daughters of Baron Ernst von Poellnitz). They had two children, but divorced in 1903 on grounds of Elizabeth's infidelity. Norman's first book publication, («i»Unprofessional Tales«/i» (1901)) was written under the pseudonym «i»Normyx«/i», in collaboration with Elizabeth.
He moved to Capri, spending time there and in London, and became a more committed writer. Nepenthe, the fictional island setting of «i»South Wind«/i», is Capri in light disguise. In 1912-1914 he worked for «i»The English Review«/i». He met D. H. Lawrence through this connection. This led to a feud, after Lawrence in 1922 in «i»Aaron's Rod«/i» based a character on Douglas. In late 1916 he jumped bail in London on a charge of indecent assault on a sixteen year old boy, and effectively then lived in exile. He himself wrote of this in self-exculpation: 'Norman Douglas of Capri, and of Naples and Florence, was formerly of England, which he fled during the war to avoid persecution for kissing a boy and giving him some cakes and a shilling'. (The boy in fact complained to the police).
During Douglas's years in Florence, he was associated with the publisher and bookseller Pino Orioli, who published in Italy in his 'Lungarno' series a number of Douglas's books and also works by other English authors, many of which (such as the first edition of Lawrence's «i»Lady Chatterley's Lover«/i»), would have been prosecuted for obscenity if published in London. Douglas probably had a major hand in writing Orioli's autobiography, «i»Memoirs of a Bookseller«/i».
Further scandals led to Douglas leaving Italy for the south of France in 1937. During World War II Douglas left France, and on a circuitous journey to London, where he lived from 1942 to 1946, he published the first edition of his 'Almanac' in a tiny edition in Lisbon. He returned to Capri, where his circle of acquaintances included the writer Graham Greene and the cookery expert Elizabeth David. He died in Capri, apparently deliberately overdosing himself on drugs after a long illness. (see «i»Impossible Woman: Memoirs of Dottoressa Moore«/i», ed. by Greene).
His son, «u»Malcolm «/u», gained the Hunua seat in the 1978 general election in New Zealand, but lost it after an electoral petition.

His grand-daughter, Deidre Sholto Douglas is a bioscientist in Illinois, USA. 
Douglas, George Norman (I4268)
23005 «b»He took the surname of his maternal grandmother and became known as Melvyn Douglas.
Born Melvyn Edouard Hesselberg in Macon, Georgia, he had a long film career, stretching from 1931 until just before his death. He was the hero in the 1932 horror film The Vampire Bat and the sophisticated leading man in 1935's She Married Her Boss. His first major role was opposite Greta Garbo in Ninotchka in 1939, and he starred with her again in 1941's Two-Faced Woman (they had also appeared together in 1932 in As You Desire Me.
During World War II, Douglas worked first as a director of the Office of Civilian Defense, before he left to serve in the United States Army. He returned to such comedy roles as in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, a role that was made for him. As Douglas grew older, he took on the older-man and father roles, in such movies as The Americanization of Emily, Hud, The Candidate and I Never Sang for My Father, for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor.«/b»

23006 «b»Hector Seymour Peter Monro, farmer and politician: born Edinburgh 4 October 1922; MP (Conservative) for Dumfries 1964-97; Scottish Conservative Whip 1967-70; a Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury 1970-71; Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Scottish Office 1971-74, 1992-95; Parliamentary Secretary of State (with responsibility for sport), Department of the Environment 1979-81; Kt 1981; PC 1995; created 1997 Baron Monro of Langholm; married 1949 Anne Welch (died 1994; two sons), 1994 Doris Kaestner; died Dumfries 30 August 2006.«/b»
For a third of a century Hector Monro, Conservative MP for Dumfries from 1964 to 1997, was my friend and parliamentary opponent. His opponents held Monro in the highest regard for a very good reason. We knew that he cared deeply about the subjects for which he had ministerial responsibility. Many ministers see office as a stepping stone to greater things. Monro was totally motivated by the job in hand.
There was no better example of this than his behaviour as a minister in the Department for the Environment responsible for the day-to-day piloting through the Commons committee stage of the 1980-81 Wildlife and Countryside Bill, creating a legal framework for wildlife protection in Britain. Led by Denis Howell, those of us in the Opposition team sensed that Hector - the name by which he was almost universally known throughout Parliament - would, if he thought it was justified, fight his corner with his ministerial colleagues and would often get his way. He had no thought for what his stubbornness might do to his career.
This favourable opinion is shared by a man who perhaps above all others now alive is in a position to know - Sir Martin Holdgate, who was the Chief Scientist at the Department of Environment at the time, and soon to become Deputy Secretary responsible for rural affairs. Supported by such distinguished civil servants as Peter Scott-Malden and Alan Levitt, Monro took on the prejudices of many in the government party and pushed through the "Sandford amendments" which created the concept of Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Holdgate recollects him as
a warm, sympathetic, concerned man who felt deeply about the environment. Monro made the 1981 Act far stronger than it otherwise would have been and at the same time he did not antagonise the feelings of the land-owning and sporting fraternity from which he came. Monro was responsible above all others for persuading core Tory supporters that his measure, which went far beyond what had appeared in the first draft of the Bill, was not inimical to their interests. This was a huge if unsung achievement.
Tom King, then the Environment minister in overall charge of the Bill, says:
I could not have asked for a better or more loyal and likeable colleague than Hector. We worked together on the Commons Bill that became the Wildlife and Countryside Act. But it is no secret that it was Hector who carried the major burden of piloting this important Act. He brought to it his lifelong interest and great knowledge of nature conservation and the countryside and was liked and respected by all the different groups whose varied interests he had to consider.
It is my belief that it was Monro who persuaded King, and other members of the Government less sympathetic to the environment, that they should not use the dreaded guillotine procedure. One result was that, after endless speechifying by Peter Hardy, Andrew Bennett, Ted Graham and myself on subjects ranging from Halvergate Marshes in Norfolk to the difficulties the constabulary would have to face in identifying the differences between the bar-tailed and black-tailed godwit, Monro persuaded the Government for parliamentary time reasons to concede what we were really after - the establishment of marine nature reserves. Any other minister would have taken the easy way out and that would have been to the long-term disadvantage of the Isles of Scilly, Lundy and other areas of marine conservation.
Fiona Reynolds, Director-General of the National Trust, but then a young public affairs officer for the Council for the Protection of Rural England and one of the ever-present briefers of the Opposition team, recalls:
Hector Monro was a minister and above all a countryman who could out-talk the lot of you on the habits of the redshank and the bar-tailed godwit. But what he really did was to shift the whole system away from a narrow regulatory regime towards the provision of incentives for doing the ecologically correct thing.
Another environmental achievement that belongs to Monro is the first systematic approach to dealing with alien species of flora and fauna. Holdgate concurs with the view that he was among the first to take pest control seriously.
Hector Monro was born in 1922 into a military family. He lost his father, Captain Alastair Monro of the Cameron Highlanders, in 1943, but his real mentor was his maternal grandfather, Lt-Gen Sir Spencer Ewart, who could claim to be the first head of what became MI5 and MI6, and whose own father, General Sir John Ewart, had been a lieutenant-colonel in the 93rd Highlanders at the Siege of Lucknow in the Indian Mutiny. Hector was also proud of being a direct descendant of General Sir Thomas Brisbane, not only a distinguished military man but the first astronomer who mapped the southern heavens; he gave his name to the city of Brisbane when he became Governor of Queensland.
After Canford, the Dorset public school, Monro went to King's College, Cambridge, but he spent only a year as a student, leaving the university air squadron for a commission flying in RAF Coastal Command. Monro, a very modest man who never flaunted his achievement, later told both Tom King and me that Coastal Command had involved hazardous patrols far out into the Atlantic searching for U-boats in Catalinas for up to 24 hours at a time. In 1964 I was told by Brigadier Sir John Smyth VC MP that Monro, the new MP for Dumfries, had been unlucky not to be decorated for his work as a pilot both in the Battle of the Atlantic and subsequently in the Far East.
Monro had a lifelong concern for the RAF and was an honorary air commodore of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force from 1982 to 2000 and its Honorary Inspector General from 1990 to 2000. When he was on the back benches before being made a whip and after leaving ministerial office he spoke in virtually every debate involving the RAF.
Returning to civilian life, he farmed at Williamwood, Kirtlebridge, in Dumfriesshire and became Chairman of the Dumfriesshire Unionist Association in 1958. He was the obvious choice as Conservative candidate for Dumfries in the general election of 1964. A man of great charm, he had no difficulty in holding his seat when those in the Conservative interest were tumbling all round Scotland.
In 1967 he was appointed Scottish Whip and worked closely with his talented contemporaries George Younger, Alick Buchanan Smith, Ian Lang and Teddy Taylor, under the general direction of Gordon Campbell, who was to become Ted Heath's Secretary of State for Scotland. Progressing from being a senior government whip, Monro was the natural choice to take over responsibility for agriculture in the Scottish Office. He worked hard on the enormously knotty problem of agricultural holdings, and years after he left the department he had the satisfaction on 21 April 1983 of saying:
Honourable members would not wish the Bill to leave the House without congratulating the Government on introducing it. For a long time change has been desired in the structure of farm tenancies in Scotland . . . This Bill will be welcomed throughout agriculture in Scotland.
What he did not say was that he had done more work than anyone else over the years to reach a satisfactory compromise.
In 1974 Margaret Thatcher gave him responsibility for sport. He had been a formidable rugby player and was very prominent in the Scottish Rugby Union for 20 years between 1958 and 1977. He was also President of the Auto-cycle Union (1983-90) but his main contribution was his concern, alas only semi-effective, to prevent the destruction of school playing fields.
It was a huge blow to Monro that in 1994 his ever-supportive wife, Anne, died. I attended the funeral and saw for myself the outpouring of sympathy from a huge number of constituents, some of them friends of mine in the Dumfriesshire Labour Party. His popularity as a local MP straddled party politics. And even when people were angry with him (as I was over his attitude to the PanAm 103 destruction over Lockerbie in his constituency) he was disarming.
His family and friends were very pleased that he should marry Anne's friend Mrs Doris Kaestner, a widow from Baltimore, with whom he was to have 12 happy years. He took great pride in the army career of his son General Seymour Monro.
Until a recent short illness he played a constructive role in the House of Lords, where his knowledge and experience was valued - because he only, as always, opened his mouth on things that he really knew about.

23007 «b»His grave in 1855 had been marked by a large granite slab prepared by his son Jones T. Douglass. The lettering now hard to
read from weathering, was helped by the placement of
the new bronze marked on the top of the slab. This
marker identifies his as a Veteran of the War of 1812,
where he served as a saddler in Captain John P. Harvey's
Troop of Light Dragoons, Georgia Militia.

23008 «b»James, married 1753, Mary Ritchie, daughter of John Ritchie of Craigton. He died leaving two sons and five daughters. The elder son, James, married and had twelve children, the eldest of whom was James, a judge of Georgetown, Maryland, United States. He was therefore the direct heir of line and male representative of the old lairds of Garnkirk. The brother of the judge, named George, died unmarried.
five granddaughters of the last laird by his eldest son, James, were - 1) Helen;
2) Henrietta; She became the first wife of Captain Robert Davidson, and dying left one son, James, who died young, and one daughter, Margaret. This lady was married, first, to the late Gilbert Watson, banker in Glasgow, and secondly, to Dr. David Patrick of Athole Place, Glasgow, without issue. She was the nearest surviving direct descendant in this country of the last old laird of Garnkirk, who died in 1769. She had a number of interesting portraits of the old Dunlops; she died in 1870, and the pictures now belong to James Dunlop of Tollcross, who is now the representative in this country of the old Dunlops of Garnkirk.
3) Margaret;
4) Mary;
5) Grace;
all died unmarried except Henrietta.

23010 «b»John Francis Stanley Russell, 2nd Earl Russell«/b» ( 1865 - 1931 ) was Bertrand Russell 's elder brother and grandson of former prime minister , John Russell, 1st Earl Russell . He was married three times, including Elizabeth von Arnim , who caricatured him in her novels.
His first wife was Mary Edith Scott , who married him in 1890, tried to divorce him (and lost) in 1891, sued for restoration of conjugal rights in 1894. He requested a judicial separation in 1895, but she appealed and it was overturned.
Russell married Marion Cooke Somerville , his second wife, in the United States in 1900 and was convicted of bigamy in the House of Lords 18 July 1901 . He was sentenced to only three months in prison, on account of the "extreme torture" he had suffered in his first marriage. The first Countess Russell had already obtained a divorce, and he married Mrs. Somerville 31 October 1901 - three days after it became absolute.
His second wife divorced him in 1915, and he married Elizabeth von Arnim the next year. They separated in 1919.
Russell was the first peer to join the Labour Party and was Labour's Leader in the House of Lords . He was Undersecretary of State for Transport and for India in Ramsay Macdonald 's government. He supported his brother's pacifism, and was a close friend of George Santayana . 
Russell, John Francis (2nd Earl) (I107570)
23011 «b»John Russell, 1st Earl Russell«/b», KG , GCMG , PC (18 August 1792 -28 May 1878 ), known as «b»Lord John Russell«/b» before 1861, was a British Whig and Liberal politician who served twice as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in the mid-19th century.

Russell was born into the highest echelons of the British aristocracy. The Russell family had been one of the principal Whig dynasties in England since the 17th century, and were among the richest handful of aristocratic landowning families in the country, but as a younger son of the 6th Duke of Bedford he was not in line to inherit the family estates.
He was educated at Westminster School and then at the University of Edinburgh - one of only three university-educated British Prime Ministers to have attended somewhere other than Oxford or Cambridge (the others being the Earl of Bute and Neville Chamberlain ).
[edit ]

«/b»Russell entered parliament as a Whig in 1813. In 1819, Russell embraced the cause of parliamentary reform, and led the more reformist wing of the Whigs throughout the 1820s. When the Whigs came to power in 1830 in Earl Grey 's government, Russell entered the government as Paymaster of the Forces , and was soon elevated to the Cabinet. He was one of the principal leaders of the fight for the Reform Act 1832 , earning the nickname «b»Finality John«/b» from his complacently pronouncing the Act a final measure. In 1834, when the leader of the Commons, Lord Althorp , succeeded to the peerage as Earl Spencer , Russell became the leader of the Whigs in the Commons, a position he maintained for the rest of the decade, until the Whigs fell from power in 1841. In this position, Russell continued to lead the more reformist wing of the Whig party, calling, in particular, for religious freedom, and, as Home Secretary in the late 1830s, played a large role in democratizing the government of British cities (other than London ).
In 1845, as leader of the Opposition , Russell came out in favour of repeal of the Corn Laws , forcing Tory Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel to follow him. When the Tories split the next year over this issue, the Whigs returned to power and Russell became Prime Minister . Russell's premiership was frustrating, and, due to party disunity and his own ineffectual leadership, he was unable to get many of the measures he was interested in passed.
Russell's first government coincided with the Irish Potato Famine of the late 1840s. Russell's government also saw conflict with his headstrong Foreign Secretary, Lord Palmerston , whose belligerence and support for continental revolution he found embarrassing. When, without royal approval, Palmerston recognized Napoleon III 's coup of December 2 , 1851 , Palmerston was forced to resign, and the ministry soon collapsed.
After a short-lived minority Tory government under the Earl of Derby , Russell brought the Whigs into a new coalition government with the Peelite Tories, headed by the Peelite Lord Aberdeen . Russell served again as Leader of the House of Commons, and together with Palmerston was instrumental in getting Britain involved in the Crimean War , against the wishes of the cautious, Russophile Aberdeen. Incompetence in the early stages of the war, however, led to the collapse of the government, and Palmerston formed a new government. Although Russell was initially included, he did not get on well with his former subordinate, and temporarily retired from politics in 1855, focusing on writing.
In 1859, following another short-lived Tory government, Palmerston and Russell made up their differences, and Russell consented to serve as Foreign Secretary in a new Palmerston cabinet - usually considered the first true Liberal Cabinet. This period was a particularly eventful one in the world outside Britain, seeing the Unification of Italy , the American Civil War , and the 1864 war over Schleswig-Holstein between Denmark and the German states. Russell's handling of these crises was not particularly noteworthy, and he was always overshadowed by his more eminent chief. In particular, his attempts to attain British mediation in the American war, which were shot down by the cautious Palmerston, did not improve his position. Russell was elevated to the peerage as «b»Viscount Amberley«/b», of Amberley in the County of Gloucester and of Ardsalla in the County of Meath, and «b»Earl Russell«/b», of Kingston Russell in the County of Dorset, in 1861.
When Palmerston suddenly died in late 1865, Russell again became Prime Minister . His second premiership was short and frustrating, and Russell failed in his great ambition of expanding the franchise - a task that would be left to his Tory successors, Derby and Benjamin Disraeli . In 1866, party disunity again brought down his government, and Russell went into permanent retirement.
