About Helen Douglas of Angus

1. Lady Helen Douglas (d. after 20 Nov 1486), mar. (1) bef. 1460 William [Graham], 2nd Lord Graham, and (2) bef. 1478 as his second wife James [Ogilvy], 1st Lord Ogilvy of Airlie, and had issue by her first husband.


Helen, dau of 2nd Earl, identified as William Graham's wife by both Burkes Peerage 1932 (Hamilton) and Burkes Peerage 1932 (Montrose) but The Scots Peerage shows Anne, dau of 4th Earl, as William's wife as does MacGregor's Landed Families of Perthshire.  

"William, the second Lord Graham, married Lady Ann Douglas, daughter of George, fourth Earl of Angus, "the Red Douglas" of James II.Ùus time, who in Scottish tradition is remembered as having "put down the Black. "Another account of the clan... Patricks only son[?], William, second Lord Graham, married lady Anne Douglas, eldest daughter of the fourth Earl of Angus, and had two sons, William, third Lord Graham, and George, ancestor of the Grahams of Calendar.

[This is disputed by Stirnet Graham02 using as its sources both The Scots Peerage and Burkes Peerage 1934 who say he married Helen Douglas daughter of the 2nd Earl of Angus]
