Name: Elizabeth Douglas
Death: 21 NOV 1678
Change Date: 8 DEC 2012
Patrick, Count Leslie, married first, 24th November 1661, Elizabeth Douglas, daughter of Gavin Douglas of Bridgford, son of William, Earl of Angus.
She can not have been the daughter of Gavin Douglas who died before 1 October 1616, if she was still of childbearing age when she died in childbirth in 1678. The following seems much more likely:
Patrick Count Leslie of Balquhain, ... married in 1661, Elizabeth Douglas,
granddaughter of William, Earl of Angus...
(The Valuation Roll for the County of Aberdeen for the Year 1667. Tayler. 1933.)
If her father was of Bridgford then he must be Robert.
Patrick, Count Leslie, married first, 24th November 1661, Elizabeth Douglas, daughter of Gavin Douglas of Bridgford, son of William, Earl of Angus. In the legal proceedings already alluded to we find that Walter Leith, merchant in Aberdeen, aged 30 years, produced a Latin copy of the Bible in folio, printed at Paris in 1537, which he had bought from David Angus, bookseller in Aberdeen, in 1744, and on which there were written on two leaves, then produced, the following entries : ?
"Anno Domini 1661, die 24 Novembris, nempe Dominica P. G.L. Conjonzit in Matrimonium Patritium Leslie et Elizabetham Douglas ? quo die praedictae dominae Pater Robertus Douglas a Pseudoministris excommunicatus fuit."
"1669. 20 June, Sunday, was bom James Leslie, Baptized the same day.**
"1678. 21 November, died Elizabeth Douglas, mother of the above, in childbed of a daughter Elizabeth."
