  This connection for the 4th Bart is as reported by BP1934 (Douglas of Glenbervie), the baronetcy passing because it was created with remainder to the 1st Bart's "heirs male whatsoever". BEB1844 (Douglas of Glenbervie) shows Robert, 4th Bart, as son of an unnamed younger son of the 1st Bart, possibly because of a presumption that the 4th Bart must have been descended from the 1st Bart.
