An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The present generation of the Buclind family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having 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.

Buclind Early Origins



The surname Buclind was first found in Buckingham at a village and civil parish in Aylesbury Vale district. This reference is by far the oldest but others include: Buckland, Kent a village near Dover; Buckland, Gloucestershire, a village and civil parish in the borough of Tewkesbury; Buckland, Hereford, a village and is part of Buckland and Chipping civil parish in East Hertfordshire; Buckland, Surrey a village and civil parish in the Mole Valley district; and others.

Buclind Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Buclind include Buckland, Bucland, Bucklin and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Buclind were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: 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.
