Re: Sophia Dirom: m G Duff 1791: d 1827
I think I can provide some additional information about Sophia Dirom. She was in fact the daughter of Alexander Dirom (1725-1788)of Muiresk. She had 2 brothers (Alexander[1757-1830] and John[1751-1819]) and 2 sisters (Katherine[1755-1826] and Margaret(b1758)). She married Captain George Duff, May 6, 1791, who was killed at Trafalgar October 21, 1805 while in command of HMS Mars.
I have much information on the Diroms including a couple of articles published in the "Transactions of the Banffshire Field Club", namely: "A Banff Officer who Fell at Trafalgar", 27 July 1916, and "Provost Dirom and His Descendants", 1935.
My mother is a Dirom and a descendant of Alexander Dirom (1757-1830). If you wish more information please email me.
