  • Notes 
    • 1st Marquess of Douglas 11th Earl of Angus
      Was a favorite of King Charles I, who raised the Douglas House to a Marquessate in 1633. He also granted Douglas' two youngest sons the Earldoms of Selkirk and Dumbarton. The Earl of Selkirk wedded Anne, the heiress to the Ducal house
      of Hamilton in 1656, making him the 3rd Duke of Hamilton. William's eldest son predeceased him, so the Marquessate passed to his grandson.
