  • Notes 
    • Her grandfather was an attorney at Gloucester, whose name was Charles Barrow, and who was created a Baronet in consequence of his connexion with the Corporation of that city. Sir Charles acquired a large fortune; he was, however, never married, but he left several daughters, one of whom, the mother of Lady Douglas, married a private soldier, named Hephinson or Hopkinson, who was soon made a Sergeant; and, afterwards, by the interest of Sir Charles, he obtained the situation of army agent; he subsequently became a Colonel, possessed of considerable wealth and a fine estate near Gloucester. Mr. Douglas, whilst on the recruiting service at Gloucester, being then a Lieutenant of Marines, became acquainted with Miss Hopkinson and married her; but at what period is not precisely known. According to Lady Douglas's statement their courtship must have been a long one, as she says that she waited for Sir John nine years.

      Sir Charles Barrow (1708 1789) was created 1st Baronet Barrow, of Hygrove, co. Gloucester [Great Britain] on 22 January 1784.
