Lewis Duff’s grandfather, also Lewis Duff, originally settled at Hartley Vale at the foot of the Blue Mountains before moving higher up the mountain to Katoomba where he ran a dairy farm.

His grandfather was a prominent member of that community, becoming Mayor of Katoomba on a number of occasions.

His parents moved to the Western Suburbs and settled in the Granville/Lidcombe area. The move was probably related to work opportunities with a number of family members employed in the meat production industry. The major Sydney Abattoirs were located at Homebush.

Lewis’s father, William, appeared to be active in local sport, with a W. Duff being elected to the Committee, at different times, of both Wests Rugby Union and Wests Rugby League.

Lewis Duff died at Auburn, NSW in 1962
