Ducket & Dogget

The Duckets and Doggets are fictional families, both descended from a Celtic fisherman, in LONDON. Both these are common English names; but 'Dogget's Coat and Badge' is a real and famous boat race of the watermen on the Thames.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1598, Queen Elizabeth ordered a banquet featuring a food source from the new world: potatoes. The royal cooks, having never prepared potatoes before, threw the veggie away and cooked the green part or eye instead, sickening the whole royal court. Elizabeth banned the vegetable. The ban was eventually lifted a few years later when potatoes gained popularity in Spain, France and Italy.
