Another daughter married an Englishman and her daughter was the mother of Captain Marryat, the English novelist. Another son, Duncan junior, was a merchant in Boston. The Acts and Resolves of the Province of Massachusetts Bay, Vol. V, gives Duncan Ingraham, Jr., as one of the signers of a petition to Governor Hutchinson, May, 1773, in regard to auctioneers selling goods at private sale.
