Douglas was the power base for the “Black Douglas” family in the 13th century. They were modest landowners who gaind greatly through their support of King Robert the Bruce. By 1400, they were the most powerful family in Southern Scotland. This brought them eventually into conflict with King James 2nd and in 1455 they were overthrown.
