Sir William Douglas (of Lochleven)

( - circa 1421)
     Sir William Douglas (of Lochleven) was the son of Sir Henry Douglas.
John Ravilious spoke to Andrew MacEwen concerning his conjectures concerning the identification of the wife of Sir William Douglas of Lochleven (d. 1421)[1]. He agreed that the relationships set forth in the dispensation did not match with the presentation in Scots Peerage (i.e., that Sir William Douglas was married to a daughter of David Lindsay, 1st Earl of Crawford); and that while he was not aware of any documentation or source that would further relate to the matter, he had "no problem" with the conjectures, and that he "didn't see anything wrong with your theory."
Based upon the above, it does appear that the identification in Scots Peerage was based on a flawed understanding of the dispensation itself, and/or of the actual descents of Sir William Douglas and his wife (to be) from Walter the Stewart (d. 1326). I think it then reasonable to state the following:
1. Sir William Douglas of Lochleven (d. 1421) had dispensation to marry Elizabeth Lindsay, daughter of Alexander Lindsay, 2nd Earl of Crawford, as appears from " a dispensation by Henry, Bishop of St. Andrews, for the marriage of William Douglas of St. Andrews diocese, and Elizabeth Lindsay of Brechin diocese, they being in the third and fourth degrees of consanguinity. " [2]

2. It appears that the marriage to Elizabeth Lindsay did not occur (likely due to either her death or to marriage to another individual) and that Sir William Douglas was married to Christian, most likely a sister of Elizabeth and another daughter of Alexander Lindsay.

3. The relationships identified between the Lindsay family and certain descendants of Christian (including her daughter Elizabeth Douglas, of Earl Alexander Lindsay (d. 1439), and her son Sir John Auchinleck of that Ilk, " lovit cousin and squire " of David Lindsay, (5th) Earl of Crawford in a confirmation of a grant in 1466) serve to confirm this conjecture.

This will further serve to correct existing confusion, whereby Elizabeth Lindsay, daughter of David Lindsay (1st Earl of Crawford) and his wife Elizabeth Stewart, is shown on occasion to be married to Sir William Douglas instead or, or in addition to, her known husband Sir Robert Erskine [3].

Some statements (documentation not noted) indicate that Elizabeth Lindsay, a daughter of Alexander Lindsay (the 2nd Earl) was married to one Simon Glendonwyn: perhaps further evidence will be found concerning this alleged marriage, which would serve to account for Sir William Douglas of Lochleven marrying another Lindsay daughter.

which cites Harl. MS., 6438.


[3] SP III:17, sub _Lindsay, Earl of Crawford_. See also
SP V:604, sub _Erskine, Lord Erskine_, which notes an
agreement between Thomas Erskine and David, Earl of Crawford, dated at Brechin, 20 Dec 1400 that Sir Robert Erskine should marry a daughter of the Earl.
This relationship is proven by a dispensation for the marriage of Elizabeth Lindsay's daughter Janet and Walter Stewart of Lennox, dated at St. Peter's, Rome, 26 April 1421:
' Dispensatio matrimonialis
Walter Steuart of Levenax, Glasgow diocese, and Joneta de Erskyn, daughter of Robert de Erskyn, knight, St. Andrews diocese, - that the Pope would dispense them to contract and remain in matrimony, notwithstanding that they are related in the third and third degree of consanguinity.

Leo Van der Pas replied: Christian Lindsay married (1) Sir William Douglaa of Lochleven (2) Sir David

Have a look Burke's Peerage 1938 page 2547
David Wemyss, of Methil and Wemyss married before 4 February 1423/4
Christian Douglas, they had two daughters and one son, he dies before
September 1430 and she marries Sir James Auchinleck

the same person.
