Russell Duffield's Family of Brisbane, Australia

Updated September 5, 2000

My ancestors came from England and Scotland in the 1800's and settled in Brisbane, Australia.

John & Martha DUFFIELD (from Halifax, Yorkshire) came to Brisbane in 1862 with their four chn (John c 22 Oct 1844, Charles Robert c 20 Mar 1846, Martha & Mary). John jnr. was my ggrandfather and settled in Palmwoods, Qld, married Selina EVERTON (b Coventry, England) and had 8 chn.

My grandfather, Arthur Charles DUFFIELD married Elizabeth ORR (b 2 Aug 1880 in Paisley, Scotland and parents James Orr m Elizabeth Killoch on 13 Aug 1873 in Paisley), lived in Taringa in Brisbane and had six chn.

George PEARCE (b 4 Sep 1861 in Hayes, Kent), my mother's father, came to Brisbane in 1887 and married Alice Blanche ROBINS in Brisbane, had 11 chn and eventually settled in Rockhampton, Qld.

I am currently trying to trace any relatives of the DUFFIELD, EVERTON, PEARCE and ORR families from England and Scotland.

We will be holding the first DUFFIELD family reunion on 20 May 2000 in Brisbane.
