USED IN A DISTILLERY IN SCOTLAND. DONOR'S FAMILY, JOHN & JANET DUFF BROUGHT SET WITH THEM WHEN THEY IMMIGRATED TO CANADA IN 1885. AS A RESULT OF RESEARCH DONE IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SCOTTISH-THEMED EXHIBIT IN 2009, THE GALT CONDUCTED NEW INFORMATION ON THE DUFF FAMILY, ADDING THE FOLLOWING TO THE RECORD. OBJECTS WERE BROUGHT TO CANADA BY THE FAMILY OF JOHN AND JANET DUFF. IN 1885, THE DUFFS LEFT SCOTLAND AND CAME DIRECTLY TO THE LETHBRIDGE, BECOMING ONE OF THE AREA’S FIRST PIONEER FAMILIES. JOHN DUFF RAN 250 TO 400 HEAD OF CATTLE ON LAND ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE LETHBRIDGE TOWN SITE. IN THE EARLY 1900S, THE HOMESTEAD WAS ANNEXED BY THE TOWN AND FOR DECADES THE FORMER FAMILY LANDS WERE KNOWN AS THE “DUFF ADDITION”. THE FAMILY INCLUDED THREE DAUGHTERS AND FOUR SONS. THE DONOR, ISABEL STARNES (NEE DUFF), WAS MARRIED TO G.H. STARNES AND WAS THE LAST SURVIVING MEMBER OF THE ORIGINAL FAMILY, PASSING AWAY IN 1971. FOR OTHER DUFF FAMILY-REALTED MATERIALS, SEE DONATIONS BY BLENNER-HASSETT, JACK WEBSTER, MARY AND ISABEL STARNES.
