About Agnes Rome of Dalswinton-Holm

James Douglas, 3rd of Mouswald, married Agnes Rome, daughter of John Rome of Dalswinton-Holm, and they had 10 children, two of whom suceeded to the title.

Their eldest son, also James, married in 1654 Janet Laurie, but he died predeceasing his father without children. William, the second son, succeeded in about 1667 as 4th baron, but he died in 1670, also without children.

The title then fell to the 3rd son, John, who became 5th baron of Mouswald. He too died without children. His brothers, Archibald and Robert had presumably died before him, because the title then fell, in 1692, to his niece, Elizabeth, Robert's daughter.
