     Janet Keith married Sir David Hamilton, son of Sir David FitzWalter FitzGilbert Hamilton and Margaret Leslie. He was of Cadzow. Janet Keith was born in Scotland. The connection shown between the Douglas family and that of Galbraith, actually leads to a very interesting line of descent. One document provided a complete transcription for an inquisition concerning the lands of Dalserf, dated Dec. 30, 1303 [1]. Specifically, this shows that one Johanna(de) Galbraith, daughter of William de Galbraith and Willelma de Douglas, was married to a 'Bernard de Cathe'. This in fact is a gentleman better known as Bernard de Keith, identified by Andrew B W MacEwen as the younger brother of Sir William de Keith (d. ca. 1293) and ancestor of the Keiths of Galston.
