Originating in Aberdeen, Findlay Duthie became a mariner and sailed with his brother William to Melbourne in 1853. His son Barclay Alexander Duthie went to Fiji in the 1870s with his wife Emma Fowler and established a large family there. Many descendants still live in Fiji; others have moved to New Zealand and Australia.
About The Canopy
The Canopy is my place for posting thematic bits and pieces about my family history and new discoveries as I continue to research. While family genealogy is not presented here, it is available in full in my current publications.
The 'Publications' section at the top shows my published books, which can also be found through the family names under 'Articles' above. They are available for sale in hard copy or on CD for prices ranging from $AUS10 to $AUS20.
Additional families covered in the books can be seen by clicking on the families listed above or type a name in 'Search'. If you would like to see all our ancestors go to 'Surnames I've Researched' and 'Family Origins' on the top bar. If the names look familiar, drop me a line. I’m particularly keen to get in touch with others who are researching these same families and can provide information.
