I put an html redirect on the old html pages to the new WP ones, then I got worried about it being hit for duplicate content, so I just deleted all the old html ones.

A 301 redirect is to tell Google your page has moved and thus prevent duplicate content issues, not create them.

In your .htaccess add:

redirect 301 youroldpage.html yournewpage
