Duncan Family

The Duncan family is the family that I am having the most trouble in tracing. Oral family history has it that the first of my Duncan's to arrive in India was from Scotland and he was a Master Mariner. He was supposed to work for the Honourable East India Company and with Tea Clippers out of Calcutta. I have yet to find any evidence of this. All I have found so far are Railway workers with the East India Railway. You never know though!
