Social History

‘DUGUID.— On the 12th December, at her residence, Miller-street, West Melbourne, after a long and painful illness, borne with Christian fortitude, Helen, relict of the late Alexander Duguid, aged 53 years.’

source: The Age


Alexander and Helen Duguid arrived in Victoria on the Black Eagle in 1854.

‘The ship Black Eagle, from Liverpool, full of immigrants, which arrived on Friday evening last, is not yet cleared, and the good folks on board look very sorrowful on being in port, and so close into shore off Sandridge, on Sunday, after a long voyage, and not yet allowed to land.’
