On the 14th of August 1634 Mr. Douglases (possibly Thomas Douglas, minister of Balmerinno) son James, designed of Ardit, was served heir to him in his lands of Stonypath, Langtoun, Dubend, tenement in Edinburgh, Broomholes, and acres in Scurrbank. Anne, daughter and. heiress of James Douglas of Stonypath and Airdit, married Sir William Douglas, second baron of Glenbervie (descended from the Earls of Angus), who thus acquired James Douglas's lands. 2 Their only son, Sir Robert Douglas of Glenbervie, commanded the Royal Scots at the battle of Steinkirk in 1692, where he fell. The title then devolved on his cousin, Sir Robert Douglas, who changed the name ' Airdit ' to ' Glenbervie,' which, however, was afterwards displaced by the original designation. Sir Robert Douglas, author of the " Peerage and Baronage of Scotland, was the representative of this family.

Stonypath was acquired from the Douglasses by James Cleland, President
of the College of Surgeons in 1657, and ancestor of Dr. Jamieson, author of the
Dictionary of the Scottish language.

 

James Douglas of Stonypath, killed at Flodden, 1513.
