Richard William Glode Douglas (1798-1862) England & Australia.

Richard William Glode Douglas was born in Godmanchester, Suffolk, in May, 1798. His father was James Douglas, famed antiquarian (archaeologist) and Chaplain to the Prince of Wales's Regiment. The family was not wealthy, despite the Royal and genteel circles in which they moved. His mother was Margaret Oldershaw. In fact money problems were a feature of the family life, and James was obliged to borrow and beg money from his more wealthy relatives and friends. 

However, matters got worse, and Richard was arrested for debt 2 Dec 1828 and taken to the lock-up in Chancery Lane. Although there is no evidence that he was transported, he eventually reached Australia.

 

Richard married Julia Elizabeth Nugent Bree (nee Norton), daughter of Dr. (Rev) Robert Francis Bree and Charlotte Richards, on 22 Dec 1829 in Chichester, England She was born before 1810 in United Kingdom and died on 18 Nov 1879 in Sydney Infirmary, New South Wales.
