James Sholto Douglas

???? - 1829


Owner of The Grange in Hanover, Jamaica. Son of Charles James Sholto Douglas and half-brother of Edward Bullock Douglas (q.v.).

  1. The will of James Sholto Douglas formerly of Tangiers and consul-general of Morocco but late of the City of Bath was proved 08/02/1830. In the brief will he left his holding of consolidated annuities in trust for his two daughters Basilia Mary and Anne Elizabeth for their lives, then to his sons Sir James Dawes Douglas and Sholto Douglas. He made no mention of property in Jamaica or of a residuary legatee; it appears that he had made an earlier settlement in 1826 and 1827, to which General Sir James Duff and Edward Bullock Douglas were trustees.


  1. PROB 11/1766/263.
