Duffus 2000 Reunion!!!

undercon.gif (293 bytes)

Saturday, July 1st and Sunday, July 2nd, 2000.

Update

After my mass mailing to Duffuses in the U.S. and Canada I received a handful of responses. With the UK invitations, the majority of which went out three weeks ago, things are looking a little more promising. Most of those responding wanted to know more about our plans.

George Duffus in Dundee has found a band for the ceilidh which we are planning for Saturday night. As I as understand from George, this will be a catered dinner. Therefore, there will have to be a charge if you would like to attend this event.

We would like to have an attendance estimate before we commit to any other activities. I think it would be appropriate for us to schedule events for the afternoon of the 1st and something for the morning of the second.

For those of you who haven't been to Duffus Castle or Moray there are tons of things to do. We suggest tours of  St. Peter's Kirk, Elgin Cathedral, the Covsea caves, Lossiemouth, Hopeman and Burghead. Spynie Palace is also a must. There are an incredible number of excellent liquor distilleries in Moray You will have plenty to keep you busy. Culloden Battlefield is minutes away, while Loch Ness is approximately 40 minutes by car. Dunrobin Castle, the seat of the Sutherland Clan is approximately 2 hours away. For the venturesome, the Isle of Skye is a four hour trip from Duffus. Also, the coastal area, from Duffus east to Banff and beyond (an hour's drive), is impressive.

We estimate full tickets for all events, including the ceilidh, Saturday night, to be priced at  approximately $50.00 U.S. per person. Should you not wish to attend the ceilidh, the cost will be less.

We hope you can attend! This event is not meant just for people with the last name of Duffus. So please feel free to invite your relatives and friends.

This a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet descendants of your original ancestors who inhabited Moray over 1000 years ago. We think you will find many similarities!

EXPRESSING INTEREST IN THE REUNION - FAX, EMAIL AND LETTERS

309-4900 Carter St.
Vancouver, B.C,.
Jan. 11th '99

Dear fellow American Duffus,

many thanks for your letter and contents. I am sorry to inform you that my husband Mort (Mortimer) died November 4, 1997. He would have been extremely interested, as his cousin, Allan Duffus used to keep him informed regarding the family trees etc. Mort was very proud of his ancestry.

Having been married for 61 years I feel I am 75% Duffus and 25% Ferguson.

I was in Crief and Campbelltown this past summer, but was unable to visit the Castle as I wished to do. However, if I remain as healthy and active as I am, at present, I most certainly would like to attend the reunion in July of 2000. Our grandson, Graham Duffus Arkurst will be watching the web site as you have advised.

Having spent over two and a half years in Scotland it has become a very special place in my heart. Three of my Grandparents were born there.

My best wishes to you for the coming year.

Sincerely,

Mary "Johnnie" Duffus

Dear Mr. Duffus,

Thank you for your letter about the proposed Duffus "Get Together" July 1st/2nd at Duffus Castle - Year 2000. There could be at least four of us attending - depending on how the younger generation feel. Have you been in touch with the Sutherland Clan Secretary at Dunrobin Castle?

I am looking forward to hearing more about it in due course.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your letter of 9 April (sent to my mother)

My wife and I are indeed interested in attending the "Duffus 2000 Reunion." Please send further details.

I have been to Duffus Village and the castle; also to Elgin Public Library to do little research. I have a picture of Lord Duffus - a copy of the painting in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

I look forward to meeting you and the other Duffuses in 2000.

Dear David,

What a lovely surprise your invitation and correspondence was. We've not talked about anything else since we received it last Wednesday, 5 May.

We would like to know if the invitation is for just those with the name Duffus or other family members as well. You see Bruce is of the family John Morrison Duffus (Jack) born May 1901 of Cary Queen Nursery, Midstockit Rd., Aberdeen. All his descendants number 52 in total.

We do hope you are successful in obtaining Duffus Castle grounds for the event - it sounds great. We visited some years ago as Bruce's sister Mavie (Mame?) lives near there in Buckie, Banfshire.

Jack Duffus was a professional footballer in the 1920's as was his brother Robert (Bob).

We are gathering information for a family tree also details of dad's football career. Our daughter, Janet Tierney, is on the Internet, but I don't know her website code as she lives down South of England and I'm waiting on a phone call from her.

We are so much looking forward to meeting you all and exchanging news and information in the meantime.

Sincerely,

Wendy & Bruce

P.S. I Have sent copies of your correspondence to Bruce's 2 sisters and 2 of our 3 daughters. Janet tells me she searched the Duffus web site and was amazed at all the information.

Letter from John Gerard Duffus

(click on hyperlinks in letter for enclosures!)

 


167 Gilmore Place
Edinburgh EH3 9PW
         3/4/99

Dear Mr. Duffus,

First off may I thank you for the CD - I've had a shufti at it at work - there's mountains of stuff on there - God knows where you got the time - anyway, once again my thanks.

Here's some stuff for you - various pamphlets on the National Library etc. Also a photocopy of the reference (which I got a bit wrong in my last letter) to the last laird of Duffus. The copy of the Gazetteer page (from a UK gazetteer) dates from 1951-2 & is even than out-of-date - King Edward railway station was closed in 1951. The other gazetteer pages are from Groeme (a 1903 edition) - the standard work that is mentioned in the newspaper cutting.

I photocopied entries of all of the names I could remember at the time - things were a bit rushed so the results are far from perfect, I fear. Leastwise, it's a start.

There's some other stuff which may be of some interest - contract is what dad signed when he joined the National Bank of India in 1935. - the main bit about conditions being attached to marriage. 8 years from going overseas! Dad once told me that Shell Company was 10 years. I guess the war put paid to that.

The Secretaries Institute Certificate strikes me as unusual because the date is actually typeset & not typed.

Dad's birth certificate is enclosed.

The two photographs are Granny and Granddad (Uncle Willie's mother and father). I'd have to guess at the date but I think it may be sometime in the mid 30's.

And there's the announcement of my birth - who needs a birth certificate with credentials like that! Actually when I first came across it a few weeks ago I read it without realising it was me.

The postcards are more or less self-explanatory. The one with the address on the back was clearly intended to go to New Zealand but obviously never got sent. Auntie Jessie's handwriting
on the back.

The one of the bridge shows Granny and Granddad's house more or less dead centre - well, just, just left of centre. The house on the right was reputedly 'made of mud' and was inhabited by what seemed to me at the time a very old and old-fashioned woman called Mrs. Sherris. A pleasant enough wifey but always dressed in black - not necessarily from mourning, although I don't know.

The 'Clatterin Brig' was so called because it did just that and is not the stone built item (indeed one would hope not!) But a plank bridge just up from the tee junction to the road going off the hill. This road if I remember right brings you in at the top of Auchenblae via Drumtochty Glen. The other road off to the left goes up the Cairn o' Mount. Used to be a car hill climb up here in the 20's. The corresponding motorcycle hill climb was the other side of Laurencekirk - up Garveck. The cottage as I first remember it was empty but later was done out as a tea room and was apparently quite successful for a time. Last time I was way about 9 -10 years ago and it was again empty and I think getting on the ruinous.

Ah, a wee point comes to mind - in fact a couple - in the stuff you kindly printed out for me - the piece about the lighthouses and I just had a look and can't for the moment find it - the name of the builder on the first pages changes to another name on page 2 and on. I think I'm right.

And the mention of the 'Turra Coo' comes out as the Turra Coc' - probably because the type in this machine was in need of a good clean - which it now had.

I'm afraid I haven't found that map of Spynie Loch but I did see an original - a slightly different one and what a superb looking piece of work. This one was at the map library in Causewayside in Edinburgh. They will not (quite understandably) photocopy this (photocopying bleaches the colours) but would photograph it for about 40 pounds. The originals were made to settle a legal dispute between two landowners over whether one had the right to drain the loch. Which brings me to the final bit - I have had photocopied some maps of the area around Duffus and the Northeast corner there which I will send on presently - however these are in some way copyright and clearance would have to gotten before they are or parts of them were put on the Net. And for a couple of them you need an AO scanner - rare beasts I imagine.

Back to the Scottish gazetteer - the poorly copied one - at the end of the entries you will see something like Ord. Sur., sh 95, 1876 - this I take to mean the area concerned is covered by that Ordinance Survey map. The scales and sheet arrangement are to some extent explained in one or other of the leaflets included.

Keep thinking I'm finished when another thought pops up - I meant to say earlier - please keep all this stuff (including the postcards which I think mildly collectible) including (when I get a big enough envelope) the maps - ah, and there's another thing I've acquired a book for you (which will come with the maps) called Tracing your Scottish Ancestors by the Scottish Record office - I've had a look at it and it appears to be a well written and useful document - but I would stress that the book up to section 2.6 should be read before anything else - sorry if I'm teaching anybody to suck eggs - its just I've done a little historical work myself (not on the family - on a certain class of railway engine) and I just dived in with both feet - it just made a lot of double work. It would be (to me) pointless and a fantastic amount of work to scan all this in even if it wasn't copyrighted - the reason I scored a copy is it's almost gone out of print - if so it's unlikely to be reprinted for some time. However, if you do et enquiries about this sort of thing you will have some direction to point folk in - you may already of course. Phew, that's about it - for someone who normally writes about a letter a year I seem to be almost running amok!

One last word - I've set this par to catch your eye - should you decide to put that lot above on your page - I'm told by those who can type they seldom actually read what is being copied and I wouldn't want to put a (to coin a phrase) damper on your proposed 'do' at Duffus Castle next year - you may have guessed already - yes, the weather - last two summers here have been dreadful - nothing but rain, and then more rain. Indeed, two years ago we had the entire average rainfall for June in 24 hours - I particularly remember because then it rained for about 35 hours non-stop (with breaks for downpours) and my roof was leaking. This year looks to be shaping up in the same sort of way. What now would hope for is a summer like 1996 but was the genuine 100 year event.

Well that's about it for now, I'll try and get this dreary lot off on Monday.

Yours aye,

J. Duffus

P.S. Dreary me, on re-reading I seem to be taking a lot for granted on your part. Auchenblae is where Granny and Granddad lived after they left farming. The cottage mentioned is in the 'Clatterin Brig' picture. It clattered when you drove over it.

Editor's Note: John in his last letter sent copies of two Scottish farming songs which I am including here: Drumdelgie and The Barnyards of O' Delgaty.

GUANTANAMO BAY — , a Guantanamo Bay commuter, died in his home in Martires De Le Frontera, Caimanera, Guantanamo, Tuesday. Duffus, 77, began working here in July 1943. He was one of the base’s 18 remaining Cuban commuters.

Duffus held many supervisory positions in the Supply arena over his 55-year career. His devotion and mastery of the English language were recognized by countless awards.

Eight Duffus brothers have worked at this activity over the past 60 years, totalling a combined 300 years of service.

Duffus is survived by his wife America Prawl Estevez, five children, seven grandchildren and three brothers.

A memorial service is scheduled for April 6 at 1 p.m. in the base chapel.

Isle's bid to get better play area



BRESSAY residents have formed their own playground action group in a bid to get better facilities for the island's children.

Around 25 people attended a public meeting held in the Bressay Hall on Monday night to pledge their support for the group, which claims the playground at Fullaburn in Bressay is simply not good enough.

Chairman of the Bressay Playground Action Group, Andy Duffus, said the meeting had been very positive and a field at the industrial estate and a green area near Hamilton Park had already been identified as possible
playground sites.

"A safe play area for kids doesn't exist on Bressay. I have a five-year-old daughter and nowhere to take her. There are three items at Fullaburn which are years old and look home-made.

"There's a feeling that we have to go ahead and do something about this now. The way things are going with the ferries, and if cuts are made to the timetable, it may leave us in a situation where we will not be able to afford to take our kids to Lerwick," he said.

Also at the meeting was Bressay and Lerwick Harbour councillor Tavish Scott. He believes the proposal may be eligible for cash from the SIC.

"The council has a moratorium on giving money to new playgrounds - this is not a new one. The current one is in a pretty unsuitable place. You have to go down a muddy track and it's quite boggy ground.

"The meeting was totally united that we must relocate the existing play area," Mr Scott said.

He said he would do his best to try and secure new play equipment as well but Mr Duffus said the community and the EU would both be approached for financial help.

In a letter to all Bressay residents, the group said it hoped to eventually create a community park to include a grass area for ball games, a picnic area and a flower park.

"It will purely be a play park initially but we feel we should have an area for people of all ages to go to. Somewhere where people can go and spend time if it is a fine day," Mr Duffus said.

The action group's eight-strong committee is planning to hold regular meetings with at least one public meeting in the hall every six months.

"We will constantly be seeking the views of residents. At the moment we are putting out feelers on the land situation - that's the crux of the matter. We will go for the funds later," Mr Duffus added.

From: SkyeLD@aol.com
To: davidduffus@greenvillenc.com

I have been researching my genealogy and on one branch of my family tree have
traced back to the name MARGARET JANE DUFFUS (who would be my
ggggrandmother). I believe Margaret Stuart Duffus may be her mother.

According her her obituary "Jane" was born 24/Nov/1820 in Aberdeenshire,
Scotland. She immigrated to Ashland, OH in 1850 and two years later was
married to Alexander Cummings. In 1854 they moved to Iowa, first making
their home in Cedar county. Two years later they moved to Poweshiek County,
IA. "Jane" died 16/Feb/1882 and is buried in Ewart, IA (possibly at the
Clover Hill Cemetery. Their children, grandchildren and descendents lived in
Ewart or in Malcom, IA. I still have many many relatives living in Malcom.

I would be happy to share my family tree information with you if there is a
connection. The information I have read in your family tree is almost the
same. I appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks! Skye Sonczalla-Driggs

Sorry not to have responded sooner but my family - four children et al - were
here over the week-end and it was for a birthday party for my wife's 90 year old
cousin. So we have not had time to look at our email.

I agree with David Duffus' comments but this may be further verified by some of
the church records also shown or linked to the Duffus web site. I will try to
follow this and see if Jane and Jean may be the same. Certainly the history
checks. There are also several cemetery locations around Malcolm, Grinnell,
Colfax etc in Iowa where her family data could show up.
I am still looking for ancestors of James Duffus and Margaret Stuart.

Although my present server is 'bestnet.org' I have all mail to
<gsduffus@hwcn.org> forwarded to my "active" server.
Would appreciate any corrections/additions you may wish to send.
