Douglas-Home

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



The Douglas family’s legendry connections go back to 767 AD when Sholto Duglass “turned” a battle in favour of King Solvathuis against Donald Bane; however, it is William (Born) 1174 who is widely acknowledged as the founder of the Black Douglas family and the Douglas Estates.

The Earls of Home, as Wardens of the East March of Scotland, can boast similar lineage to the Douglases.

The two families came together in 1832 when Lady Lucy Montagu Douglas married Cospatrick Alexander Home – the 11th Earl of Home.

The Douglas-Home family has not only served Scotland, and their local communities of Douglas and Coldstream, but the Nation as well, with Sir Alec Douglas-Home (14th Earl of Home) serving as Prime Minister in 1963.
