He married Harriet - in ireland around mid or late1820's to 1833 when first child recorded born. His wife was Harriet no surname and could probably be his second wife
Also he possibly had a half sister Bridget born 1821 when he was 10. He also had staying with him in Hull Yorkshire a brother named Martin Duffy who only gives Ireland as place of birth born 1831-1927 died hull Yorkshire.

Possibly or another sister named Catherine born in 1821 shown on census as neighbour in Mill st Hull Yorkshire
