Duckworth Ancestors
Posted by: Ingrid Koch (ID *****2530) Date: June 11, 2009 at 00:47:31

I am searching for information on my Great Grandfather William Newton Duckworth. He had about 8 children one of which was my Grandfather - James William Duckworth. I have located information in volumes of the Fergusons Directories in Ceylon around 1880 - 1914. His occupation was a Telegraph Signaller/Post & Telegraph Master in various towns. He could have also been a Planter as I have been told that there was a connection to "Duckwari Tea Estate" in Rangala.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has any information on the Duckworth family who apparently came from Liverpool, or the "Duckworths" of Duckwari Estate.
