    Just wondering why you have no names linked to Gartconnel?
    My research shows links with Douglas and Logan families.

      Steven. Thank You. The table does show Gartconnell in the Logan column but not in the Douglas column. Without trawling through my notes I’m not sure if this an oversight of mine or perhaps ignorance of some of the available sources. It is confusing because the documents sometimes refer to a property as “…. Logan” or “…. Douglas” – but not always! If you can provide chapter and verse for the Gartconnell Douglas connection I should be delighted to include it. It’s feedback like this which will improve the website. Many thanks, Denis.
