Question about English (US)

“You weren’t due up here”, he says, “for another seventy-two years! You’ll play havoc with the computer, you will, getting here before your time. And I’ve only just got the hang of it. It was all pen and ink and ledgers before, and that was bad enough. I’ve half a mind to send you back.”


What does “due up” mean?

You will, getting here before your time.
I don’t understand this grammar.
Why the “get” forms ing? What does it mean? Does it mean “because you get here before your time”?
