Thanks for the reply and I appreciate the effort since that note was posted some time back.. ... but I have different information to that which you provide.Dr James Welwood was the son of Rev. James Welwood (NOT Robert Welwood) and Margaret Dury, and he married twice (1) Barbara Armor in 1685, Edinburgh; (2) Elizabeth Tregonwell Seymour in 1703 in London.He was physician to King William III and Queen Mary II, and was a publicist, Whig polemicist, scholar and author- of the newspaper the "Mercurius Reformatus or The New Observer" and of several tracts on history and politics as well as translations of Greek and Roman texts.
He studied at St Andrews (as did his brothers) and at Leyden and at other places in Europe, including Paris. He eventually graduated from University of Reims in 1684, taking a doctorate etrangers in medicine. He returned to Dunfermline by 6 Aug 1684, and moved to Edinburgh (where he married Barbara Armor) and then to Newcastle and later to London, arriving there after the revolution of 1688.He had met William of Orange earlier in Holland.An excellent biography is available, written by Elizabeth Lane Furdell "James Welwood: Physician to the Glorious Revolution" (Signpost, 1999, ISBN 1580970052).Regars,Welwood.
