John Duckett (1613–7 September 1644) was an English Catholic priest and martyr.

John Duckett was born at Underwinder, in the parish of Sedbergh, in Yorkshire, in 1603, the son of James and Francis Duckett. He was a relative, possibly grandson of James Duckett who had been executed at Tyburn on 19 April 1601 for printing Catholic books.
