BIOGRAPHY: William fell martyr during the religious troubles that afflicted Scotland at the time Charles the Second was restored to the throne, and William refused to take the Jacobite oath. He received his degree in theology from the King's College at Aberdeen on 1648. When William was ejected from office for informing against members of the resistance to Episcopalianism, his children fled to Virginia where they settled in the region of Northern Neck.


BIOGRAPHY: He married a Sarah Haldane of the Gleneagles noble family.

BIOGRAPHY: Culpepper Co. VA Records and "Green Family Records" indicate that a William Duncan with his brothers Charles, Henry and Thomas immigrated to America between 1690 and 1694. Those four brothers are considered to be the four sons of Rev. William Duncan who died in 1692, as the names and ages readily correspond. It also appears logical that as their father had been persecuted by the Western Whips and Presbyterians, that they were receiving the same treatment, and that shortly after their father's death, they decided to immigrate to America. They first settled in the northern neck of VA which became Belhaven in 1731 and Alexandria in 1749. In 1700 there was a William Duncan and his brother Thomas who were located on a 100 acre plantation on Maryland's Eastern Shore in Somerset County, which they called "First Contentment".
