There is not much known about Humerdink Duck. He was born before 1860 and married latest in 1875 to Elvira Coot, daughter of Clinton Coot, and granddaughter of Cornelius Coot the founder of Duckburg. The farm they took over belonged to her family so he must have come from elsewhere. He is shown alive in the mid 1920s, but seems to be dead before 1940. When it comes to his origin Don Rosa says that the Duck family came from the British Isles, probably England.
