Marquesses of Douglas

 

William Douglas (1589-1660) 11th Earl of Angus, was created Marquess of Douglas in 1633 (he resigned the title of Earl of Angus and it was recreated with the marquessate, so he was also the 1st Earl of Angus in the new creation). He outlived his son Archibald Douglas, Earl of Angus (c.1609-1655) and was succeeded by Archibald's son James Douglas, 2nd Marquess of Douglas (1646-1699). 

James' son and heir Archibald Douglas was created Duke of Douglas, Marquess of Angus and Abernethy, Viscount of Jedburgh Forest, Lord Douglas of Bonkill, Prestoun and Robertoun on 10 April 1703. He died without leaving an heir and the titles acquired with the dukedom became extinct. All his other titles devolved to his distant cousin the 7th Duke of Hamilton.
