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.
