The first Duckett to arrive in Ireland was George Duckett. Thomas Duckett purchased the land in the townsland of Kneestown, Co. Carlow from Thomas Crosthwait near the Lake District. Thomas Duckett’s grandson, William, married Elizabeth Dawson Coates co-heiress of a Dublin banker, John Dawson Coates. Russellstown Park, which adjoins Duckett’s Grove to the west, was built for their second son William Duckett in 1824.
