William Ducke [a]b. 1620 England, m. 1645, d. 1680

  • 1620 — born? If we assume that he was 18 when he arrived in America, he would have to have been born by 1621. This would make him 38 when William [b] was born. It is entirely possible that John Duck [a] was the son of William [a] and father of William [b]. Some of the dates would make more sense that way.
  • 1639 — headright granted to Justinian Cooper - it is not known just when William [a] arrived in America except that it was prior to the headright. It was likely not more than a year earlier.
      Expand/Collapse William Duck [b]b. 1658 in Isle of Wight Co, VA, m. 1690 Margaret in Isle of Wight Co, VA, d. 1727 in Isle of Wight Co, VA

    • 1658 — born? This is just a guess. This would make his death at the age of 69 and his age when he witnessed the will of William Boddie as 21 and appraised the estate of Thomas Mann at 32 and married by the age of 33. However, his birth would have been 19 years after his father arrived in America. Is there a missing generation?
    • 1679 — witnessed will of William Boddie - This must be William Boddie Sr. I give this entry to William [b] instead of William [a] just because he seems to be trusted in the following entries.
    • 1690 — Appraised the estate of Thomas Mann. - This must be Thomas Mann, Sr.
    • 1691 — Lived on plantation owned by Richard and Sarah Lewis in Lower Parish. Richard's will gives the care (tuition) of Richard Jr. to William Duck. - >William must have been the overseer of the plantation and most likely was already married to Margaret. Lower Parish later became Southampton County.
    • 1693 — And Margaret Duck witnessed gift of 100 acres on Currawaugh Swamp from Thomas Mann to Sarah Mann, wife of Francis Davis.
    • 1694 — Bought 80 acres from Thomas Mann on SW side of Currawaugh Swamp.
    • 1704 — Paid quitrent (tax) on his 180 acres of land in Isle of Wight County. - >He must have bought another 100 acres prior to this time.
    • 1720 — Bought 100 acres from Benjamin and Sarah Beal NW side of Currawaugh Swamp. Previously William Fowler's land. — This purchase might have been by William Jr.
    • 1727 — Died. Will recorded 1727 and probated 28 Oct 1728. Wife Margery. Children Bridget, Dorothy, Isabel, Robert, Timothy, William, John, Jacob. Will states that William and John were the eldest sons.

      • 1692 — Born? His parents were married before 1691, William and John were the two eldest sons, and I am guessing that his first-born son was named after himself, however the daughters might have been born first and eight children in his will only means that eight survived until then.
      • 1734 — Married Eleanor Carr (daughter of John Carr).

Their only military action would have been defending their homes from Indians. I have no evidence that Robert, Timothy, and William were the sons of Robert, but they appear together consistently.
