Duckworths 1983

The Duckworths in 1983

The Duckworth family was a family of Manchester descent who resided at 9 Coronation Street between 1983 and 2012.

Jack Duckworth and his brother Clifford, sons of Harry and Maggie Duckworth, grew up in Butler Street. In 1957 Jack married Veronica "Vera" Duckworth and they had a son, Terry, in 1964. Jack and Vera were married until Vera's death in 2008, in which time they moved from Inkerman Street to Coronation Street, had a three-year stint as owners of local pub the Rovers Return between 1995 and 1998 before selling up to Alec Gilroy, and were grandparents to Paul Clayton, Tommy Duckworth and Brad Armstrong, though they were only close to Tommy.

In 2010, Jack passed away from Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The last member of the clan to reside in Coronation Street was Tommy, who departed to the Canary Islands in 2013.
