No Dates


Dominick Duany was listed in the Jamaican Quit Rent books for 1754 as the owner of 708 acres of land in St Thomas-in-the-East. This was possibly Mount Pleasant, owned by another Dominic Duany who died c. 1784. No entry found for him in the probate inventories.

"James Duany was probably born in Ireland. He settled in Jamaica in the late 1600s. He married and had four sons, Ambrose, Edmund, Andrew and Dominick. The name is also spelled Duhaney. Includes Codrington, Hall, McIntosh and related families."

Dominic Duany was also heir-at-law of Ignatius Duany (q.v.).
