Guernsey Butchers : Duffett


The Duffet family were from the village of Sturminster Newton in Dorset. Three brothers came to Guernsey - first mention is of George who was married in Guernsey in 1843. By 1851, brothers Philip and William had both moved to Guernsey. Although they both gave their occupation as butcher, it is not until 1874 that the first of them, Philip Duffett, is listed as a stallholder in the meat market. Their father, Moses, was an Agricultural Labourer from Sturminster Newton, but Moses' father, Samuel, and his younger brothers, William and Samuel, were all butchers in the village, they would have been brought up to learn the trade.


Samuel DUFFETT ( 1756 - ? ) married Priscilla RIDOUT
