The origin of rules governing the spelling of names and even words is a very recent innovation. Before that, words and names were spelled according to sound, and, therefore, often appeared under several different spelling variations in a single document. Arbuckle has been spelled Arbuckle, Arnbuckle, Arbukile, Arbukill, Arbuckell, Arbuckles, Arbucles, Arbucle, Arbukle and many more.
