DOUGLAS, Archibald of Keilor and Barathil, Laird of Balneathill, Sir 1 2
- Born: About 1558
- Marriage (1): FORBES, Barbara
- Died: 1649 2
Archibald married Barbara FORBES, daughter of William FORBES 7th Lord Forbes and Elizabeth KEITH Co-Heir of Inverugie. (Barbara FORBES was born about 1560 1 and died by 1619.)
"The unfortunate lady (Barbara Forbes, after the death in 1601 of Alexander Hay) was, however, not finished with her matrimonial troubles, for the laird of Delgaty being dead, the rejected Sir Archibald Douglas of Balneathill, reappeared, on the scene, and reclaimed his spouse, and in a contract regarding the Delgaty children 24 and 25 March 1608, the parties were Francis Earl of Errol and Sir Alexander Hay of Delgaty with his curators on the one part, and Dame Barbara Forbes, with consent of Sir Archibald Douglas, her spouse, on the other part (Aberdeen Sas. II. 89). Poor Dame Barbara was dead by 1619, as appears from her
childrens settlements regarding the foregoing contract."
