One of the earliest records of a Duckworth in America was John Duckworth, under a four-year indenture, was one of 23 persons "imported into this province .... Registered in the Secretary's books of             Records," 1 December 1684, upon the account of Wm Dockwra" (Jersey, first series, v.21, p. 61). William Dockwra (Dockray, Docwrae) was a London merchant and one of the proprietors of East        Jersey.  John Duckworth was born in England. He had the following children: Joseph, Anna, John M., and William. The name of his wife is lost.

The personal estate of William Duckworth, yeoman, of New Hanover, Burlington Co., N.J. was appraised at L 88 -, 9 - 6, 7 March 1727/28, by Asher Cleayton, John Wright, and Jonathan Fowler. On 15 March 1727/28 William Cook gave bond as administrator of the estate. His accounting of 22 March 1730/31 included charges for "sundrys furnished the widow in her last sickness, " two coffins, and digging
two graves (Ibid., v. 23, p. 144).

In the May term 1728 the County Court confirmed William Bowgar and William Dean, who were appointed by Grace Duckworth, widow, during her last illness, as guardians for Joseph, Anna, and Mary Duckworth (Burlington Co., N.J., Minutes of Common Pleas, 1717-1733, p. 330).  These three seem under 14; usually, orphans under age, but 14 or over, chose their own guardians.

LAND GRANT- To "John Duckwith (Heir at Law to William Duckwith) 200 acres. On the waters of McDowell's Creek joining McCulloh's & McGee's Land..30th January 1773 (File 1898) "for John Duckwith as heir at Law to William Duckwith Dec'd...Joseph Hobbs Jr. & Simon Duckworth. (chain bearers) John Duckworth of Burke Co., NC sold this 200 acres to John McKnitt Alexander 7th September 1795 (Mecklenberg Co. Deed Book 15, p. 161)

V. Jonathan and Keziah England Duckworth. Jonathan, was the son of William and Jane Duckworth of McDowell's Creek in Mecklenberg County, N.C. and brother to John and William of Burke County, and George who died in McMinn County, TN. Kezziah born c1771 was daughter of John England.

Little is known about his life except that found in the Burke Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. October 1787 Term appointed to serve on the road jury to lay off a road from Burke County and Morganton to Widow Hagan's. He was on the 1793 Tax List of Burke County, one poll, no land, and neighbor to William Duckworth, John and Daniel England (Hunting Creek). January 1798 - Jonathan Duckworth - misdemenor - Guilty - mis-trial by consent. April 1798 - bondsman for James Kidd, $250, Constable. October 1798 William Duckworth, John Duckworth, and Jonathan Duckworth appointed jurors for Jan Session 1799. April Session 1799, Jonathan Duckworth, a delinquent Juror from last term, appeared and rendered sufficient excuse and thereby excused.

He was probably residing with his brother William Duckworth on Hunting Creek at the time of the 1790 Census of Burke County; he being the second male over 16 years of age, William's eldest son was not born until 1790. 1793 Tax List he was residing in Capt. Casion's Company as were Daniel England 89 acres, John England 0, Jonathan Duck 0, William Duckworth 0, John Duckworth 0, William Robinson 180 acres.

When Jonathan Duckworth died 10 November 1807 in Burke County, N.C. of a disease that reached epidemic proportions, he was living on the north side of the Catawba River neighbor to Silas Murphy, John Bryant, and Mrs. Mary Bradley, and all dying of the same disease in the course of four days.

Keziah, the widow of Jonathan Duckworth, came to the Brevard, N.C. area sometime before 1810 with seven children, four boys and three girls, "The Brevard Seven Duckworths". She was born ca. 1771 in N.C., daughter of John England, and married ca. 1795 in Burke County, N.C.  There is no record of Jonathan or Keziah owning land in Buncombe County. At the time of the 1810 U.S. Census of Buncombe County, Keziah was living near Ben Davidson, William Wilson Sr., Mary Shurk, Samuel King Jr., and George Osborn. 

The first organization of Baptist in what is now Transylvania County, N.C., was an arm of the French Broad Baptist Church, started 17 April 1813 and organized 22 July 1822. Keziah Duckworth joined the Mission prior to the permanent organization. She died 16 January 1820 and was the first recorded death of the membership and the first buried in the Cemetery. She was the first Baptist of record in the Duckworth Family and her influence must have been great as all four of her sons were active in the Church and she had two grandsons who became Baptist Preachers of some note.

Jonathan and Keziah Duckworth were the parents of "The Brevard Seven Duckworths":
1. John McCamie was born 7 June 1797, died 2 March 1887, married Sarah Hamlin, daughter of Elikiam and Ann Reagan Hamlin, and lived at Cathey's Creek;
2. Jane was born ca. l799, died about 1869, married William Harrison Nicholson, son of John Nicholson, and they lived at Cherryfield and Dunn's Rock;
3. David was born in 1801, died in February 1891, married Mary Williamson, daughter of Charles Williamson, and moved from the North Fork of the French Broad River between 1834 and 1836 to Union County Georgia;
4. Jonathan, twin to David, died ca.1870, married Rebecca Hunter and moved from Cherryfield to Union County, Georgia after 1843;
5. William was born 26 April 1805, died 2 July 1884, married Sarah A. Jordan, daughter of Joseph and Hannah Davis Jordan, lived and died at Cherryfield;
6. Elizabeth was born 5 August 1807, died 1 February 1854, married John Hamlin, son of Elikiam and Ann Reagan Hamlin, and they lived at Cherryfield and Brevard; and
7. Charlotte whose dates of birth and death have been lost but she may have been twin to Elizabeth, married Thomas Aiken, son of Ezekiel and Sarah McCravey Aiken, and they lived at Cherryfield.

VI. David and Mary Williamson. David Duckworth was born 1801 in Burke Co. N.C., the son of Jonathan and Kezziah Duckworth. The father died in Burke Co. 10 November 1807 of a disease That had reached epidemic proportions. The mother had moved to the French Broad River Area between Ben Davidson's Creek and Cathey's Creek by the time of the 1810 U.S. Census. Her neighbors were George Osborn, Sanuel King Jr., Mary Shurk, Kizziah Duckworth, William Wilson Sr., and Benjamin Davidson.  Keziah died 16 January 1820 and was the first member of The Cathey's Creek Baptist Church to die and was interned in the adjoining Cemetery.

About 1819 David married Mary Williamson, the daughter of Charles Williamson and wife whose name is unknown. Mary had two sisters and two brothers; the name of the eldest sister who married A. E. Sitton is unknown; the youngest sister, Nancy, married William Anthony; the eldest brother was John and the youngest brother was Charles Jr.

By 1820 David and Mary were living on the Main North Fork of The French Broad River, in what was then Macon Co. but now Transylvania Co., N.C. His brothers Jonathan and William and sisters Charlotte Akin, Elizabeth Hamlin, and Jane Nicholson lived at Cherryfield and brother John lived at Cathey's Creek in Buncombe Co. some few miles to the east.

Between 1830 and 1836 David Duckworth had moved his family and his wife's mother to Union Co., Georgia where he had purchased two land lots, 120 acres, in the Choestoe District on the Araquah District line.

He later sold the property on Choestoe to his son. John Williamson Duckworth, and purchased a farm on Araquah Creek east of Harmony Grove Baptist Church. His neighbors in 1870 were: John A. Christopher, Peter Flowers, Maria Akens, William C. Hughes, Jonathan Duckworth, Southier Davis, John Teague, and John L. Logan.

David and Mary Duckworth were faithful members of The Baptist Church of Christ at Choestoe, from their becoming members 9 October 1836 by experience. On 9 September 1841 David was elected a Deacon and was ordained 12 March 1842. He was repeatedly appointed delegate or messenger from The Choestoe Church to the annual Baptist Association Meeting, in fact more often than any other member. During the twenty year period from 12 August 1840 to 8 September 1860 David was a delegate eighteen times.

In a book published some years ago about Choestoe and Choestoe people it is erroneously stated that David Duckworth was excluded from membership of the Choestoe Church for fighting. The Church Minutes, a microfilm copy of which are on deposit in Georgia Archives, Atlanta, Georgia, show that he indeed did have a fight with John Souther for cutting a road over David Duckworth's property and the matter was taken up in the Church Business Meetings several times and a special Presbytery was called to resolve the question. In the end David Duckworth was kept in membership but told he should have treated the matter differently.

The Church Minutes show that David Duckworth was excluded from membership 12 October 1867 for "hard sayings against Brother Pruett and Brother Curtis. On 6 November Elder William Pruett requested a letter of dismission and in April 1869 Brother Curtis, Minister of the Gospel, requested a letter of dismission. The Church Minutes show that Mary Duckworth died in 1885 and that David died in February 1891.

Frank C. Duckworth, great, great grandson of David Duckworth, said that David left N.C. searching for land suitable for forage on which to raise horses. David practiced good animal husbandry and was a renown horseman. It has been said that he always rode a good, fat horse, and the late Mrs. Sarah Souther Dyer said he always wore pretty boots   David Duckworth's horse bell, which he brought to Georgia from N.C., is still in the family.

Once at Circuit Court in Blairsville David had a young horse for sale and was asking $50.00 for the colt which was fat and slick. A man asked how much he was feeding the colt, to which David answered, "two ears of corn at a feed". The man said "I will give you $50.00 for the horse if you will put shoes on his feet"; to which David replied "I want $50.00 for the horse and you can shoe him your self". Finally the man bought the horse, paid for him, and asked, "how much did you say you fed this horse?" To which David replied, "I feed him two ears of corn at a feed but I feed him four times a day".

David and Mary Duckworth had twelve children to reach maturity, the first five being born in NC. Their children were as follows:

General J. did not want anyone to think that Francis M. and Frank C. were "handling" him. General J. did not believe in education and said if a child was going to be a criminal that he would be a bigger criminal if he had an education and it was best for him not to know anything.
