I was reading your email about the Ducharts of Wick. My mother in law now
deceased was Jane Craig Duchart D.O.B 14/3/I913. She was one of 3
daughters born to Alexander and Jane Craig. Alexander's father was Peter
Duchart. Jane's sister's were Charlotte and Harriet. I think they lived at
11 Vansittart St. on the corner of Bexley Terr. Alexander's first wife
died young and he remarried and had another daughter I think her name was
Gemma. I don't know if this is of any help to you as my mother in law past
away in 2OO1 at the age of 88 and all the rest of her family has past on.
I hope this will help you in your search if it's the same Ducharts.

I just did a search on my last name
and this page came up. I am James Duchart from Belleville Ontario Canada
I now live in Brooklyn New York. My grandfather was also James Duchart and
there was another one in the early First World War in Scotland. I
found him in Edinburgh castle in Scotland in a book I was reading when I
was there. Most my family comes from Falkirk Scotland And Glasgow
and Motherwell. My father who is Alexander Duchart lives in Aventura
Florida. We have checked on our family tree before And we have relatives
also in Pittsburgh Penn.
I am responding to your website appeal for info on the family photograph
sent in from Canada. Peter Duchart's mother, Helen Gunn, was my
great-grandfather's first cousin. I have info on the family in my personal
archives in Wick and happy to share it with your correspondent.
With best wishes,
If anyone wishes to get more info contact

Hallo I was updating my Fam Tree today and noticed a g.aunt had
married Alex Duchart, whose parents were Peter Duchart and Harriet Gunn .
Alex had been married before to Jane Craig.
I do remember Ducharts visiting Wick in the late 1940s/50s from USA or
Canada - they had relatives in Smith terrace I think.
As coincidence would have it I was updating my Family History tonight and
remembered seeing the Duchart name.
I have a record of a Donald Farmer, father Thomas Farmer, mother Margaret
Anderson, marrying a Helen Duchart on the 20th of October 1882. Her father
was a Peter Duchart, fisherman and her mother was a Harriet Gunn.
Don't know if this is the same family but it might help
