James Hepburn, Fourth Earl of Bothwell
Dear Mr. Quarterman,
Would you please post this message on the Clan Sinclair Discussion Group?
Thank you very much.
The third husband of Mary Queen of Scots was James Hepburn, Fourth Earl
of Bothwell. His mother was Agnes, daughter of Henry, Lord Sinclair. His
father was Patrick, Third Earl of Bothwell. James Hepburn was born in
Scotland in 1536 and died in a prison in Denmark in 1578.
There is a very interesting article about James Hepburn in the Scottish
Banner Newspaper for October 2001 (Page 7). It explains about his life and
his death in Denmark. The article explains that Sir Alastair Buchan-Hepburn,
one of his
descendants, wants to bring his body from Denmark, where it is on display at
Faravejle Church, back to Scotland.
