The Duke of York in 1814 had no children, neither with his wife or otherwise.
However, his brohter, The Duke of Clarence, later King William IV had some
children with a woman called Mrs. Jordan. Their oldest son was created Earl of
Munster, and took the family name Fitzclarence.
This would be much easier if you told us your name, and what you know of this
possible line back to the Duke. I now some of his descendants lives in
Australia ( = .au ?)
Hope this helpes, and please stay in touch,
