In Reply to: Richard Duckett Sr., William Duckett. by John Cook of 896

The following inscription appears on a large oval tablet in Kensington Church, London, on the north side of the alter. It proves William and Elizabeth Duckett of Henshaw did not have a son named Richard. As of this date the parents of Richard Duckett, 1672/3 have not been identified. The tablet aforementioned reads: "Here beneath this marble lyeth (in hope of a joyful Resurrection) the body of Lionel Duckett, Esq., only son and Heyre of William Duckett, late of Hartham, in the County of Wilts, Esq., by his first wife, Elizabeth Henshaw: He married Martha Ash, Eldest Daughter of Samuel Ash, of Langley, in the County of Wilts, Esq. by whom he had only three sons, George, William and Henry Stephen. He was born in the Parish on the fourth day of March, 1651, and hap'ned to depart this life in this Parish, on the fifth day of December, 1693. Jam mea peracta est Mox vestra agetur Fabula. My play is over, and I'm gone Reader! your part will soon come on."
