Robert, son of  Sir William Douglas, 6th Baron of Drumlanrig is credited with being the ancestor of Douglas of Burford. Robert held the office of Provost of Lincluden.  However, I have yet to be able to trace this family.

 

It is possible this is the same as Baitford.

 

In June 1859, Emily Jane, youngest daughter of Stephen Van Rensselaer Douglas, of Burford, Brant county, (probably in Canada) and granddaughter of the Rev Thomas Whitehead, a gentle man who occupied a prominent position in the Methodist church from 1790 to 1840, married The Rev. John Neilson Lake (James,* John,^ John^), who was born August 19, 1834, in the Township of Ernestown, County of Lennox and Addington, Ontario.

 

Stephen Van Rensselaer Douglas* is a descendant of William Douglas, b1610, so the Burford connection is probably just a coincidence.

 

Burford is in Shropshire, England

 

* not to be confused with Stephen Van Rensselaer Douglass, born in 1789 in Whitehall, Washington, New York, USA.
