DUNCAN STIRLING, of Castroville, a native of Canada, was born in that one of Her Majesty's possessions, August 18, 1864. He is the youngest son of William Stirling, of Castroville, a sketch of whom may be found elsewhere in this book.

Our subject came to the Golden State with his parents and received his education in the public schools of Monterey county. Later, he attended the State Normal School, at San Jose, at which institution of learning he graduated in the class of 1886. Mr. Stirling first taught school near Santa Ana, Orange county, California. He is now the efficient principal of the public schools of Castroville, which position he has filled for the past three years, and stands in the front ranks of Monterey county's progressive corps of teachers.

Mr. Stirling was married, May 29, 1889, to Miss Ella, the accomplished daughter of J. W. Mullis, of Castroville, a native of Sonoma county, born August 22, 1866, and she and her husband enjoy the respect and esteem of all who know them.
