Pages 93, 95: THE DUNCANS IN LEDLOWAN IN KILLEARN, AND DRUMMIEKEICH IN STRATHBLANE
Among the families in Killearn who were not possessed of lands was an old race of the name of Duncan. They were leading people in the parish in the seventeenth century, and though the main line is extinct in the district, there are many families both in Strathblane and elsewhere descended from this good old stock. John Duncan in Ledlowan, in Killearn, and afterwards in Drummiekeich (part of Blairquhosh Cunninghame), in Strathblane, married in 1703 Elizabeth Graham, one of the large clan in Strathblane which had grown and multiplied since David de Grahame was settled at Mugdock about the middle of the thirteen century. John Duncan and his wife had three sons, of whom afterwards, and two daughters - Elizabeth, who married in 1740 William Finley of Moss, and had (1) William of Moss, who was the father of the late William Finlay of Moss, who died childless; Mrs. James Adair Lawrie, of whose family the eldest son, Archibald Campbell Lawrie, advocate, now of Moss, is a judge in Ceylon; and Mrs. Dixon. (2) Jean, married David Bannerman of Letham Hill, whose only surviving child Elizabeth, married at the Moss in 1805 the Rev. John Graham of Fintry, afterwards of Killearn (see Grahams of Ballewan), and had issue, Captain Thomas Graham, late of Balfunning, and three daughters. (3) Mary, married James Dennistoun of Golfhill, banker in Glasgow, and four sons - (i.) Alexander, M.P. for Dumbartonshire in 1834, who succeeded his father in Golfhill, and was head of the great house of J. & A. Dennistoun. The survivors of his family are Alexander H. Dennistoun, now of Golfhill, and Eleanor, wife of Professor Sellar of Edinburgh. (ii.) William, died young. (iii.) James, married, but died childless. (iv.) John, from 1837 to 1847 M.P. for Glasgow, and a partner of J. & A. Dennistoun. The survivors of his family are John, a merchant in London, and Constance, whose first husband was John Hamilton, and who is now the wife of Archibald C. Lawrie of Moss. Mary Finlay and James Dennistoun had also two daughters, Mrs. Walter Wood, died childless, and Mrs. John Wood, whose grandson, John Walter Cross, married George Eliot, the celebrated authoress. Mr. Dennistoun by a second marriage had three daughters. Jean, the second daughter of John Duncan and Elizabeth Graham, married in 1736 James Smith of Craigend. (See Craigend.) Andrew Duncan, the eldest of the three sons, died young, and John and James were tenants in Drummiekeich. John Duncan married Agnes Lyle, a daughter of another old Strathblane family, and had two sons - John, born in 1738, and Charles, born in 1739 and a daughter, Bethia, who married Robert M'Indoe of Carbeth, and had issue. James Duncan married Margaret Taylor of Fintry, and had a large family, of whom the three eldest, James, William and John, went to Virginia to push their fortunes there along with their cousins, Charles Duncan and Archibald Smith, afterwards of Jordanhill, a younger son of James Smith of Craigend and Jean Duncan, his wife. Ann Duncan, the youngest daughter of James Duncan and Margaret Taylor, married Archibald Craig of Dalsholm, of the Ballewan family (which see).
Of the Strathblane cousins who thus settled in America, Charles Duncan remained there, married, and had two daughters, one of whom married James Dunlop of Rosslyn, Virginia, afterwards of Russell Square, London, and the other was Mrs. Gamble. Mrs. Dunlop had a son, and Mrs. Gamble a daughter, but both died unmarried. James, William and John Duncan and Archibald Smith, on the breaking out of the War of Independence in 1774, left America, the Duncans settling in Dublin, and Archibald Smith, as a West India merchant in Glasgow. (See Craigend.) Leaving James Duncan, the eldest of the three brothers, till afterwards, we find that William Duncan, the second of them, married a Scottish lady, Miss Baird, and had (1) William, who went to South America, and fought in the War of Independence in 1824 under General Bolivar, with the rank of colonel. His two sons, Colonel James Duncan and William Duncan, are well-known citizens of Barranquilla, South America. (2) James, who also went to South America. (3) Maria, married David Taylor of Edendale. Their eldest daughter, Agnes Maria, married John Craig, son of Archibald Craig of Dalsholm, of the family of Ballewan, Strathblane, and had issue Archibald David Craig and the Rev. John Duncan Craig, D.D., incumbent of Trinity Church, Dublin. (See Ballewan.) (4) Rebecca. (5) Jane. (6) Agnes. John Duncan, the youngest of the three brothers who returned from Virginia, married a sister of William Duncan's wife. His son settled in the United States, married, and had a daughter, who married Dr. Emmett, a New York physician, and nephew of the celebrated and unfortunate Robert Emmett, one of the leaders of the Irish rebellion, and who was executed in 1803. John Duncan had a daughter, Mrs. John Hutton, whose eldest son is John Hutton of Merovyn, County Wicklow; her daughter Maria married the Rev. John D. Malet, D.D., whose son is Professor Malet of the Queen's University, and her daughter Henrietta married Charles J. Fox of Redford Lodge. James Duncan, the eldest of the three brothers, returned from Virginia and became a West India merchant. He lived in Eccles Street, Dublin, and by his marriage in 1796 to Hannah, daughter of William Arnold, he had a daughter, Elizabeth, born in 1797, who married George Peyton of Driney, County Leitrim, and had issue; and a son James, born 1798. James Duncan, the son, was manager of the Bank of Ireland at Sligo. He married Harriett Crosthwait, daughter of Leland Crosthwait, Governor of the Bank of Ireland, and had five daughters and two sons, of whom the eldest, James, died in 1853. James Duncan died in Dublin in 1874, and is buried at Sligo. The second son, Leland Crosthwait Duncan, fourth in descent from John Duncan of Ledlowan and Drummiekeich, and Elizabeth Graham, his wife, was born in 1831. He is an officer in H.M. Customs, and lives in London. He married in 1861 Caroline Ellen, daughter of F. Lewis, of Her Majesty's Treasury, and has issue, Leland Lewis Duncan, of the War Office, born 1862; Caroline Annette, and Amy Adela.

It has four large cannons mounted.

Continuó refiriendo otros actos del señor Mosquera, de poca importancia, cuando entró el señor Duncan, juez político de Barranquilla; mudó de conversación y a poco lo invitó a pasear a la calle; pidió su caperuza, se cubrió la cabeza con ella, poniéndola sobre el gorro color de cáscara de almendra, y así salió; para bajar la escalera fue preciso tomarlo del brazo y así continuó su paseo. Yo me despedí en la puerta de la calle y me fui a visitar al General Carreño.
Al anochecer encontré al Libertador que volvía de paseo asido del brazo del Comandante Glen, y cubierto con la caperuza; lo acompañé hasta su casa; al subir la escalera lo hizo apoyado en el brazo de Glen, y con alguna fatiga del pecho; reposó un rato sentado, entró a su alcoba, volvió a salir, le sirvieron unos caramelos que me brindó y tomé; poco después me invitó a bajar de la casa, donde lo esperaban para jugar malillá (2). Bajó la escalera apoyado en el Capitán Iturbide, su edecán; se acercó a la mesa en que ya estaba esperándolo la señora de Molinares, que era la dueña de la casa, tomó los naipes, llamó a Molinares, con el titulo de Papá; me ocupó en hacerle cuarto y tomé un asiento. Estuvimos jugando dos horas, en este tiempo advertí que se molestaba cuando no tenía buen juego y que se fatigaba de estar inclinado hacia la mesa, por lo que se levantaba frecuentemente. Tomó un poco de sagú con yemas de huevo y vino que le trajeron de la casa de Duncan; llamó a Iturbide para que lo acompañara a subir la escalera y se despidió de nosotros.

- De Alfonso Duncan:
John, James and William Duncan, three brothers, born in Strathblane, Stirling, Scotland, in the mid-1700s settled in the Chesapeake Bay area of Virginia prior to the American Revolution. A cousin of them, Charles Duncan, was already living in Petersburg, Virginia, and had a thriving business as an Scottish merchant, slave broker (gasp) and farmer; they appear more than a couple of times in the pre-revolution times in the Virginia Gazette of Williamsburg, Virginia, http://www.pastportal.com/
When the American Revolution started the three Duncan brothers left Virginia and settled in Dublin. They appear in Dublin in the late 1700s. Charles Duncan stayed in Virginia, died in London. Tobacco was good to him.
The three brothers that settled in Dublin continued their mercantilistic ways in Dublin; James was a West Indies merchant (an euphemism for sugar importer)and lived at 17 Eccles Street, his widow appears living there in 1842, (http://www.failteromhat.com/dublindir1842.htm ), John and William must have been in business together since they have an address in common in the Pettigrew & Oulton's directory of Dublin of earlier dates.
I found last week that John and William were members of the Dublin Merchants Corps or the Dublin Linen Hall Corps in 1798. William Duncan also appears as one of the signers of a letter to the Lord Mayor of Dublin in Dec 10 1798. It reads:
TO THE RIGHT HON. THE LORD MAYOR. My LORD, YOU are requested to call a Meeting of the Bankers and Merchants of this City, as soon as convenient, to take into consideration a measure of the "utmost importance to this kingdom. Dublin, 10th December, 1798,
William Digges LaTouche*,
There are more signers, including John Claudius Beresford. The LaTouches were bankers and owned the LaTouche Bank that eventually became the Bank of Ireland ... Leland Crosthwait was one of the Governors of the Bank of Ireland later on.
John and William (my ancestor) married two sisters: Rebecca and Agnes Baird of Dumfries. I don't have the marriages' dates. Their sons emigrated; John, the son of John Duncan, left for the USA in 1815, settled in New York for a while, moved to Mobile, AL, in 1820 and became a southern planter in the neighborhood of Montgomery, AL, in 1826, after the Creek Indians were defeated at Horshoe Bend. One of his daughters, Catherine Rebecca Duncan was married in 1853 to the Dr. Thomas Addis Emmet, a nephew of Robert Emmet... go figure.
James and William Duncan, sons of William Duncan and Agnes Baird, settled in the Caribbean Coast of Colombia in/around 1819. James Duncan had met Simon Bolivar in Jamaica in 1815 most probably when Bolivar took refuge there.
The Duncans in Dublin were apparently in the cloth trade ... somehow it has been very difficult to get more information out of the Irish web sites. Fortunately I've been able to download a couple of books from the Internet. One is Real Pictures of Clerical Life in Ireland, by Rev John Duncan Craig, and the other is a book about the Crawfords of Donegal; my Duncans are mentioned in both.
