This genealogy is largely taken from "The Book of the Duffs" by Alexander ("Alistair") & Hettie Tayler.
The Taylers themselves make extensive use and reference to the family archives of many branches of the Duff family, as well as to William Baird of Auchmedden's "Memoirs of the Duffs" written about 1773 and later edited by, and privately printed 1869 at the behest of, Major Lachlan Gordon Duff of Drummuir 1817 - 1892. Baird himself was married to Anne, one of the daughters of William Duff of Dipple 1653 - 1722.

This genealogy is not intended to be comprehensive. (Previously omitted branches may nonetheless be added in
response to expressions of interest.)   Therefore the generation indicator mark (e.g.  (A), (i)  or whatever)
does not necessarily indicate the chronological position of a child's birth date in relation to those of siblings.
