DUCKINFIELD, or DUKINFIELD, Sir Nathaniel, died in England in 1824. He was a member of the council of North Carolina, where he owned large estates, and in 1772, while on a visit to England, was induced to purchase a commission in the British army. When the war began he refused to serve against the Americans, and on his regiment being ordered to this country he contrived to remain behind. This exhibition of patriotism did not avail him, however, as in 1779 his estates were confiscated. He was intimate with James Iredell, afterward one of the judges of the Supreme Court of the state, and maintained a correspondence with him until the close of 1791. In 1783 he married a niece of General Warde, on whose staff he was serving as aide-de-camp. In 1789 the British government made him an allowance of £3,000 for his losses as a loyalist. He never returned to this country.
