  • Notes 
    • He succeeded to the family properties on his grandfather's death in 1791 ; but at his death in 1812 his devotedness to public local interests was found to have so greatly impaired his private means as to oblige his trust' to dispose both of Tilwhilly and Inchmarlo.

      Died in his 40th year

      A note about the Douglass family from Epitaphs and Inscriptions from Grounds & Old Buildings by Andrew Jervise, William Alexander, and John Grant Michie:

      "The Douglasses had a pretty early settlement on Deeside, it having been about 1479 that David Douglass, a cadet of Douglass of Dalkeith, married the heiress of Ogston of that Ilk and Tilwhilly. The Douglasses have possesed Tilwhilly from that time, with the exception of from about 1812 to 1857, when it belonged to Henry Lumsden, Esq. [whose family was intermarried with the Burnett folk buried here], Advocate, Aberdeen, from whom or his heirs, it was reacquired by the Douglasses during the last-mentioned year. The castle of Tilwhilly, dated 1576, and now occupied by the tenant of the farm, is in a tolerable state of repair. Bishop Douglass of Salisbury, born at Pittenweem, in Fife, was descended of this family."
