About Charlotta Regina Sutherland-Duffus

[Kenneth, third Lord Duffus ] He died before 18 March 1733-34,[2] having married (contract dated 30 March 1708) Charlotta Christina, daughter of Eric Sjöblad, governor of Gottenberg, who survived until 1771.[3] He had issue:-

  • 1. Eric, who succeeded.
  • 2. Charlotta, named in 1778 as one of her mother's executors.
  • 3. Anna, married to Baron and Count Marshal Gustaf Adolph Palbitzki of Sweden. She was named in 1778 as one of her mother's executors.

[1] Sutherland Book, i. 334, 348, 351; ii. 55, 56. [2] House of Lords Journals, at date. [3] Edin. Tests., 26 September 1778.

Charlotte Regina was quite a remarkable woman in Finnish history. She was the first person to start free schools for small children (up till then it was the church) and a free library for any one. There is a charitable foundation still in existence," The Regina foundation". So a very well known early educator of commoners.

Unfortunately I think no painting of her exists nether of her father Kenneth 3d Lord Duffus (but some things, like a naval clock).
