The name Bucklend has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in one of the various places called Buckland in the counties of Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Somerset and Surrey. The place-name is derived from the word laund, which referred to a space in the open woods where the deer grazed.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Bucklend, or a variant listed above: Christopher Buckland who settled in Barbados in 1635; John Buckland settled in Virginia in 1637; Richard Buckland settled in Virginia in 1645; Walter Buckland settled in New England in 1759.
