Looking for Duke of Dittisham, Devon, England

Journal by miffy1932

As I am new to this site I thought I would start with a family that I do have some knowledge of.
My great grandfather was Christopher Terry Duke and I know that he was born in Dittisham. However I do not know how he was able to travel to Australia in possibly about 1840-1850.

Hello. There is much material on the internet, especially at: mepnab.netau.net/d/duke John Terry Duke married Frances Lock in 1793, and Agnes Smith in 1815. Christopher Terry Duke was born on 21st December 1824. They seem to have sailed on a ship called the "Earl Grey" in 1856. Andrew Wilson

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for your reply. However I tried the site you mentioned but I could not get any sense out of it. I will check the shipping lists for the "Earl Grey" and see if I can find out some more.

Are you related to the Dukes?

Thank you once again.

Hello. No, I am not related to the Dukes, but some of my Scots ancestors went to Australia.
