Ployart-et-Vaurseine is a French municipality, located in the department of Aisne , in Hauts-de-France. It is close to Arrancy, another Douglas lordship

Olivier Douglas, lord of Ployart and Arrancy died August 18, 1558 in Ployart and is buried in the church of Saint-Pierre-aux-Liens (Ployart).

There is a Funerary slab of P. Douglas, husband of Marie Cognet, who died 1634, and a Funerary slab of Marie Cognet, wife of P. Douglas.

Philippe, son of Olivier, married married twice; 1st before 1568 to Francoise de FAY D'ATHIES ca 1540- / 1583 (Parents: François d'ATHIES ca 1510- & Aliénor de BEAUVAIS ca 1515- ). They had 6 children, and 2nd 15 May 1583 to Mary COIGNET † 1634 (Parents: François COIGNET † 1583 / & Catherine RAPPOUEL ) They had two children.  Philippe was Lord of Arrancy (on the death of his nephew Louis son of Louis), Arrançot and Ployart - Ordinary gentleman of the King's chamber, Captain of galleys of the Marquis d'Elbeuf.

Nearby is Tour de Vaurseine is the last remnant of Vaurseine Castle, which was situated on this small rectangular island in an artificial lake. The, partly restored, tower is said to date back to the 15th century. In its base there are large arrow slits, which even could suggest it might date back to the 13th century. The fief fell under the jurisdiction of the Lords of Montchâlon, but it seems likely that is was also a Douglas stronghold.

Around 1540, Isabeau de Mandy brought the lands of Vaurseine to her husband Henri de Riencourt, lord of Parfondru and In 1660, Gaspard de Brail may have been Baron de Vaurseine. Did the Douglas family hold it between these two?
