There is a James Henry Duncan, West Derby, Lancashire on the 1901 census. 5 years old and son of Samuel and Sarah Jane. Born in Ireland. Also this James Duncan in Armagh on 1911 census could be the same person -

Joe,

I don't know if you are still looking at this thread about JH Duncan of the Royal Irish Fusiliers, but I am his grandson. What is it you need to know?  He died before I was born, but I can probably help you with your enquiry.

 

Regards

Michael
