  1. Clara DUNCAN b. 8 Aug 1883, Faversham, Kent, England; c. 22 Aug 1883, Faversham, Kent, England; bur. Evergreen Cemetery, Leominster, Massachusetts, U.S.A..

    Notes:
    Clara Tong (nee Duncan) and her young son, Archibald H. Tong, then aged 2, were located on passenger arrival lists for 11 March 1910. She landed at Boston having sailed aboard the Ivernia from Southampton in England. Her passenger record records her closest kin from the country she was leaving as being, Mrs. Elizabeth Duncan, her mother, at Faversham. Clara records her previous address as being Nashua, New Hampshire. She also indicated that her son had been born at Nashua and that Mrs. Elizabeth Duncan was his grandmother.

    The 1910 census was taken on 15 April 1910 and accordingly, Clara and her son, Archibald, had returned home by that time. This passenger arrival record is the first hint at just how frequently our family remembers the numerous trips made by Lizzie and her children across the Atlantic Ocean.

Generation: 2
  1. George DUNCAN b. 12 Aug 1838, Preston-Faversham, Kent, England; c. 30 Sep 1838, Preston-Faversham, Kent, England; d. 12 Jun 1920, Faversham, Kent, England; bur. 15 Jun 1920, Faversham churchyard, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    It would appear that several members of the Duncan clan had close connections to and were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Certainly plenty of evidence of their membership can be found in the membership rosters of the early church at Faversham. Additionally, at various times throughout 1938 "Baptisms and Confirmations for the Dead" were performed at Salt Lake City Temple on behalf of George Duncan, the grandson of Archibald Duncan (born during 1760). The proxy baptisms performed on 29 April 1938 indicate that George Duncan was then deceased but, on his behalf the following baptisms were performed:

    40363, Deborah Arnold, born circa 1811, of Faversham, George Duncan son

  3. Elizabeth GREGORY b. 12 Aug 1848, Faversham, Kent, England; c. 19 Nov 1848, Faversham, Kent, England; d. 20 Feb 1911, Faversham, Kent, England; bur. 28 Feb 1911, Faversham churchyard, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    During May of 1866 Elizabeth (daughter of Edward and Ann Gregory) married George Duncan, a mariner and the brother of Archibald Duncan. Archibald Duncan had married Elizabeth's aunt, Emma Gregory during 1858.

    Elizabeth and George Duncan lived at 92 West Street Passage in Faversham during 1871 with the first three of their children. In total, Elizabeth bore George a total for 14 children, a fact which was clearly recalled by Edith Owlet and which has now been proved to be true through the various church registers of baptisms and civil registrations of births. Despite Lizzie's hectic live with 14 children she managed to open and maintain a fish shop in or close to Faversham for many years.

    George Duncan was born at Preston by Faversham, Kent on 26 August 1838 to Archibald Duncan and Deborah (nee Arnold). Archibald, George's father, had been a twin and certainly there is evidence of one set of twins having been born to George and Elizabeth - Emma and Deborah who were born during 1873. Sadly, Emma did not survive and died on 25 September 1873 just 7 days following her birth.

    Some of the Duncan children emigrated to the U.S.A. - Edith, Clara, Ethel and Martha. Edith arrived at Ellis Island, New York City aboard the Berlin out of Southampton on 20 August 1894. Her age on arrival was a very young 16 years old. Martha arrived at Ellis Island on board the Mauretania on 26 January 1920 at age 28 years. She also had sailed out of Southampton.

    As of 1881 George Duncan, Jr. was residing with his paternal aunt, Jane Odey and her family at 56 Canterbury Road, Gillingham, Kent.

    Percy was the only child that could be easilytraced in the Faversham parish registers. He worked as a waterman and operated as a bridgeman for Faversham for several years. He married circa 1904 Agnes Florence. Together, they had at least four children: Mildred Florence in 1905, Ethel May 1907, Dorothy 1910 and Percy Charles in 1913.

    Florence, or Flossie as we always knew her, did not marry. There are several family stories pertaining to Flossie but only one common thread among them. It is believed that she suffered from some form of mental incapacity - cause and complaint unknown. To what extent that handicap affected her daily life is also unknown. Flossie died during May 1907 and Elizabeth, her mother, during 1911.

    As of 1881 the family lived at 3 Partridge Place but by 1891 had moved to 57 West Street in Faversham.

    George is the only Duncan I have been able to determine that remained a member of the Latter Day Saints Church in Faversham, although I suspect that his parents had been very early converts to the Mormon faith. George was baptised into the LDS church at the age of 12 on 7 September 1851. On December 16, 1855 he was "cut off" from membership in the church but no reason was given in the record. George was later rebaptised into the church on 3 June 1872. As of December 15, 1872 George was installed as a deacon and elder of the church. On April 21, 1878 he was installed as a priest of the church and on November 24th that same year was again installed as an elder of the church.

    Edith, George's sixth child, was the only one blessed in the traditional Latter-Day Saints blessing ceremony. The blessing took place on 22 June 1879 and was performed by George. He was very prompt in paying his tithes to the church and missionary fund and the church's records, so far as they exist, show that all tithes were paid between 1876 and 1879.

    On 29 August 1916 at Salt Lake City temple numerous "Baptisms for the Dead" were performed at the request of one John A. Abery acting in the capacity of "friend" to the Duncans, with Phillis Gransden acting as proxy, for several of the female members of our Duncan family:

    11553 Elizabeth Duncan (nee Gregory), born 12 Aug 1848, died 20 February 1911 of Faversham, Kent, England
    11554 Emma Duncan, born 17 Sept 1873 died 25 Sept 1873 of Faversham
    11555 Florence Duncan, born 10 May 1881, died May 1907, of Faversham
    11556 Deborah Duncan (nee Arnold - by process of elimination), birth date not listed, died March 1866
    11557 Harriet (Duncan) Banks, born 1818, died 8 February 1892

  4. Edward GREGORY c. 22 Dec 1822, Faversham, Kent, England; bur. 2 Feb 1868, Faversham, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    Edward married Ann Ruck on December 25th, 1846 at the parish church of Faversham. John Gregory, Edward's brother, and Ellen Read were witnesses to the marriage. I have not been able to identify who Ellen Read is as of this time (December, 2003). Ellen Read may well be a clue to an earlier generation of Ruck's. By 1851 Edward and Ann's first two children had been born: Elizabeth, who married George Duncan, and Alice, who married George Wyles. Edward was a mariner in the Gregory tradition and the family lived next door to that of his first cousin, Peter Page Gregory, in the Brents. By 1861 all the other children had been born and the family had returned to Abbey Street in Faversham.

    Edward died prior to the 1871 census, we are told, from blood poisoning. Ann and her children, Charles and Ann, were living at 8 Thomas Square at the time of the 1871 census. Ann had had to resort to returning to work as a laundress to support the family.

    As of 1881 Ann was living with an Isaac Harris, age 36, barge captain, of Faversham and several of his nieces and nephews at 22 Abbey Street. We have no idea why she would choose to live with these people rather than with her own children. Ann was then working as a labourer at the Gun Cotton Powder Works.

    Edward's burial record states that he was 45 years old and resided at Abbey Street. Family lore indicates that Edward died of some form of blood poisoning. Family lore also records that Edward had the nickname of "Blowhard". This name apparently came into use as Edward would be the only fisherman brave or silly enough to venture out into the sea for his daily catch despite hazardous weather conditions - weather that would leave all of the other fisherman of the town standing on the banks of Faversham Creek watching and waiting for Edward to return after his daily run. The blood poisoning result from a cut Edward had on his great toe which became badly infected. The toe had to be surgically removed but that, sadly, didn't stop the rush of gangrene up through his leg and body.

    Notes:
    The earliest reference to Edward is the inclusion of his name on the Burgess Roll of 1837/38. He did not appear on subsequent rolls, although, we do know that he did not die until April of 1857. His civil death certificate is entered on the index in the June quarter 1857 at Faversham district, volume 2a, page 321. Edward's son, Charles, did not survive past his third year of life and was buried on 6 November 1838.

    In 1841 Edward and Christian had living with them, Thomas Gregory, widower, also a dredger, aged 75 to 79 years. Thomas is shown simply as being a relative and presumably was Edward's uncle. The family lived on Water Lane and Edward worked as a fisherman.

    In 1851 Edward was still living on Water Lane and had taken Daniel as an apprentice in the Faversham Oyster Fishery Company as a dredger. Edward III and John, both sons of Edward and Christian, had married by 1851. Rebecca was also living and working away from home.

    1861 saw Christian widowed and living with her daughter, Emma, then married to Archibald Duncan. Thomas and William, Emma's brothers, were also living with the family. Their address was 5 St. Mary's Road, 'Gillows Meadows', Faversham. Thomas and William were both mariners as was Archibald Duncan. Visiting were two other children: Henry Smeed aged 1, the son of Emma's sister Mary Ann who had married Henry Smeed; and one young girl named Amelia, aged 14, a pupil teacher born at Ramsgate. Christian died during the June quarter of 1871 at age 70 years. She is shown on the G.R.O. index of deaths as Catherine Gregory. References are volume 2a, page 433, Faversham district.

  9. Christian MILSTED c. 26 Jul 1801, Faversham, Kent, England; d. June quarter 1871 2a, 433, Faversham, Kent, England; bur. 11 Jun 1871, Faversham, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    G.R.O. Death index records her name as Catherine Gregory - a name that was recorded on the 1841 census. She was christened as Christian. Burial entry also records her name as Catherine, age 70 and residence St. Mary's Road, Preston-Faversham.
