Migration of the Bucklyn family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bucklyn 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.
