Sir John Duckworth,
1st Baronet

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Duckworth, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.

The Duckworth Baronetcy, of Topsham in the County of Devon, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 2 November 1813 for the naval commander John Thomas Duckworth. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Exeter from 1845 to 1857. The title became extinct on his death in 1887.

The Duckworth Baronetcy, of Grosvenor Place in the City of Westminster, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 15 July 1909 for the prominent physician Sir Dyce Duckworth.[1] He was Treasurer of the Royal College of Physicians from 1884 to 1923 and Honorary Physician to Edward VII when Prince of Wales from 1890 to 1901.
