From on Sun, 23 May 2004 and 08 Aug 2006
George Duke married Doris Ellen (Nellie) Fernando who was my husband's great aunt. He later married her neice, Elsie May Fernando (my husband's maternal grandmother) who was the daughter of Caroline Fernando (Pedro and Catherine's daughter) and James Neal (who deserted his wife and baby, so they resumed the Fernando surname).
I discovered the ancestry of George Duke back to 1723 or so on Familysearch (I'm not sure if it's all still there now). If you'd like it I can e-mail it to you.
I have also found George Alexander and Sophia Aaron on your website, paternal ancestors of my husband.
I have not yet located the ship that Pedro Carlos Fernando arrived on or Thomas Lindsay and Mary Butler but George and Sophia Alexander came out on The Emily in 1852.
