Next, boring statistics, this site contains over 2750 people, covering 16  generations with proven connections, earliest 1550 and 4 generations unproven -  earliest 1700, in all a grand total of, 620 surnames and 775 marriages. End of  statistics.
 My research started around 1980 and I am as sure as can be that ANY PERSON born, world-wide,  of Charles DULIGAL 1796-1873 (my 3xGreat Grandfather) -- (as of July 2015, there are 2ll) is a  relation of mine, also any person being blood descendant of  his son Charles Duligal 1831-1867/Ann  Jane Adelaide Wilson 1831-72 is a direct relative to me.
 Charles (1831-1867) had 2 brothers, Richard (1826-1880) and Henry,(1828-1900) their parents were,  Charles Duligal/Elizabeth Wright.
 UP DATE, on the origin of the surname as of May 2017, the surname is French/Breton Huguenot, Jehan  Le Gal c1575, his son Francois LeGal c1620, his son, Rene Francois de Gal 1951-1724 and said to be  Maquis de Legal circ 1600's-1700 and ancestor to all Duligal's. During my research I have found 14  variations of the spelling of Duligal, and can prove the descendants of Charles Duligal 1796- 1873. to present day
 28 July 2015 UPDATE:- I now have a strong feeling the ancestor of Charles Duligal 1796-1873 had the  surname of DELEGAL which I've traced back to the beginning of 1700's

During my research on the Internet I can across a cheese maker in France using this name for his cheese, "Les fromages du LIGAL" living in La Querbe, Najac 12270, searching deeper I discovered that this cheese manufacturer has been processing this particular cheese since about 2016 and his surname is Lac Caliegnac, so there no connection to the Duligal family, just a coincidence!!!!  See photo.

The information relating to birth, marriage and death years may differ slightly from the  actual date, this is due to not being able to view official records for confirmation,  plus at times, we humans do add or subtract the odd year when it suits us. Of course  any proof that can offered will be gratefully received.

Official records in UK were not started until 1837,  - prior to this, information has been gathered 
 from Parish Records etc, - the 1841 census show Richard b. 1826 and  Charles b.1831 being sons of Charles/Elizabeth Duligal, living at Speedy Place,  St.Pancras, Marylebone. The first mention of details of Henry Duligall b.1828 (note  double "L")is that he shows up in the 1851 census living with a  family "Royston" as servant and Leather Cutter, living at 32 Chapel St, St.Pancras,  Marylebone and how I have connected him as being brother to Richard and Charles is  his first marriage (1851) has Charles Duligall (double "L") a Porter being his  father. Henry's 2nd marriage 1855 (double "L") shows his father is Charles with 1 "L"  and being deceased, but Charles is sighted in 1861 census and he passed away 1873. Henry's 3rd marriage 1888 again 2"L" showing father as being Charles Duligal, General  Dealer.
 Are you confused yet??
 Now we get onto Richard b.1826, his first marriage 1855 show Charles as father  being a Porter. Richard 2nd marriage 1864 1"L" with his father Charles, a Gentleman,  Henry and Jane Duligall (2"L's") are witnesses. 
 In census for 1871, Emma E Duligal b. 1851, daughter of Richard (1825-1880) and Mary A.F.Duligal  daughter of Charles 1831-1869) are living with Henry, they being his nieces.

To all those of the family who spell the surname slightly different to the way it is  recorded within this "TREE", this is not done with any malice or forethought, so  please excuse the difference.

Read "Charles 1796-1873" in "People/Stories", shown in the black bar at top of  this page.
 Same section:- "A collections of possibilities",(fact or fiction), and again, same  section.

Go through all the Photo sections, if you click on some of them I have added comments  which maybe of interest, in the Photograph Album section with the title of "Possible Surname  Origins & possible Ancestors" you can view 3 plague's with a possible explanation of the surname,  then a TREE and report of facts gathered from IGI of persons that COULD be ancestor of Charles 1796  and indeed all Duligal{l},as of this moment, Sept 2008 the connection can not be  proved, EVERYTHING from Charles 1796 CAN BE PROVED

Don't forget the "Guest Book"
