Gerry, Chautauqua Co., NY was once (early 1800's) known as Bucklin's Corners, and was populated by Bucklins (James and son Willard, among
others) that moved from Windham Co., VT. See following source: Until 1815 the area was an unbroken wilderness up to1815, when several families, all from Vermont, came to start new lives. "Vermont" and "Bucklin's Corners" were the first names attached to the area. The first recognition of the name Vermont to this locality we find in the town records of 1818: "A survey of a road beginning at a pine stump near James Bucklin's house, said stump standing in the highway now designated by the name of Vermont."
However, 1820 James Bucklin opened a hotel which caused the place to be known as "Bucklin's Corners." Bucklin's were early prominent in the Bucklin's Corners area. The first town meeting, in 1830, included the election of Willard Bucklin as one of the two commissioners of highways, and James Bucklin, Jr., as one of the three overseers of poor. (For a period of six years beginning 1856, James Bucklin, Jr., was the supervisor of the substantial Gerry Orphanage, which cared for both children and also aged persons without means for their own support.) However, the postoffice was named "Vermont" until 1876, when Gerry became the name of the postoffice and the village area.

He died on 1 January 1869 at the age of 70 in Gerry, Chautauqua, New York, United States.1522,2394 Willard has reference number Buck3289. He was buried at Gerry Village Cemetery in Gerry, Chautauqua, New York, United States.2394 Parents: James Bucklin-Buck695 and Martha Aldrich-Buck696.

William Bucklin2406,2407,2408,2409,2410,2411 was born about 1606 in Dorset, ENGLAND.2412 This assumed birthdate is based on the idea that the only William Bucklin / Buckland (or variations) shown in the records as being born in southwestern England at about this time is the William Buckland christened in Branscombe. He was christened on 23 November 1606 in Branscombe, Devon, ENGLAND.2413 The only reason why we have this christening date for the William Bucklin in question is that he is the only one of that name (or reasonable variations thereof) born at about that time in Devon or Dorset.
The only reason we assign this William Bucklin to John Buckland and Katherine Kerslake as parents is because of the christening information from the church record. He emigrated in 1630 from ENGLAND.2414 There is a court record regarding him in September 1631 .2415 William emigrated in 1634 from Hingham, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.2416 In 1635, he obtained land, in Hingham, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.2417 In 1643, he obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2418 In 1643, William obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2419 On 1 February 1644/5, he obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2420 He owned land in Hingham, Plymouth County, Massachusetts in 16502421 William was appointed Grand Juryman in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 3 June 16562422 He was appointed Constable in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 3 June 16572423 On 22 June 1658, he obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2424 William was appointed Enlarge Newman Church in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 30 January 1658/92425 He was appointed Shingle Newman Church in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 9 December 16592426 There is a record of land sold, by he in Hingham, Plymouth County, Massachusettson 25 May 1661.2427 There is a record of him, fence erected in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 18 April 1666.2428 On 26 May 1668, William obtained land, in Attleboro, Bristol County, Massachusetts.245,2429 On 20 February 1671/2, he obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2430 On 10 March 1673/4, he obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2431 William contributed to King Phillip's War in 1676 in Pawtucket, North Providence, Rhode Island.2432 There is a record of land sold, by he in Wachmoket Neckon 20 February 1677/8.2433 He was named in a deed on 20 February 1677/8 in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts2434 On 9 April 1680, William obtained land, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2435,2436 There is a record of him, Highway right of way in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts on 22 October 1680.2437 He died about 1 September 1683 at the age of 77 in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2438,2439 He was buried on 1 September 1683 in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.2440,2441 William had his estate probated in 1684 in Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.2442 He has reference number Buck66. [NEED TO DEFINE SENTENCE:Gravestone]225 BUCKLIN NAME.
Early records in the New World not only sometimes show William's name as Bucklin, but also sometimes as "Bucklen", "Buckline", "Bucknam", and "Buckland. The first written record of him in New England is the Hingham record which spells his name as "Wm. Buckland" for his land grant. We have no documents known to have been signed by William Bucklin.

The spelling in England of William's surname at the time of William's immigration was commonly "Buckland". In New England documentary references to his children used the spelling "Bucklin" in most of the record, especially as written records became more common. The records we have in the 1630-1700 period are written by persons who wrote the names as they heard them pronounced. At any rate, the spelling in New England, for William's offspring, by the third generation, was firmly "Bucklin". All the persons in the United States who have the surname "Bucklin" are almost certainly descendants of William.

There appear to be other persons named Buckland, not of William's family, in Massachusetts at the end of the 1600's. [ See Filby & Meyer, Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, (1981), the Guildhall Library, London.]

The oral tradition, established at least before 1900 was that : "William Bucklin came from Wey [sic], England, which was a shipbuilding center at the time. It was at the mouth of the Wey river." [Oral history from George Bucklin of Minnesota, to his children Leonard, Ethel, and Marie.] "Wey" is a place name not known generally today, so there often is a tendency of researchers today to assume that "Wey" is a mistaken or shortened form of "Weymouth", England.

The present owners of the Manor House at Buckland-Ripers are quite involved in the history of the area and insist that the present town of Radipole could be "WeyP That is: next to the present town of Weymouth is Radipole. In Roman times, the tidal basin of the river Wey furnished a harbor there. Probably for several centuries, until the harbor moved southward, Radipole was at the mouth of the river Wey, and cold have been known as Wey. It would be a place where ships were built.

Also, according to pre-1930 handwritten notes of George Bucklin of Minnesota, there was a plot of Bucklin graves by the church at " Wey", with a large central shaft among the Bucklin family graves. Indeed. there is a church with graves in Radipole (Wey). The church at Radipole (Wey) does in fact have a large central shaft in the graveyard. Although the shaft has Lethbridge as the main name, the Lethbridge and Buckler families were connected and there is in the graveyard a tomb for a family named Buckler.

Radipole is about 1 mile across the fields from Buckland Ripers. Radipole has a substantial house which was the house of Andrew Buckler in the 1500's. This house, known as the "Causeway House" is at a bridge over the Wey, at what would in previous centuries been at the tidal basin, a logical place for a shipwright to live. The Causeway House is associated with the "Buckler" name. Because Bucklin and Buckler are easy early variations of "Buckland", the oral tradition of William Bucklin being a shipwright out of Wey is again consistent with facts now known.

The ships of the 1630 Winthrop fleet did not sail from Weymouth (rather from London), but did have persons who were exposed to the powerful influence of supporters in the Weymouth area of England of the Winthrop movement for movement because of religious reasons.

The Causeway House is noted in the registers of St. Annes church as having several persons "out of the house of Andrew Buckler...dying of ye plage" in 1563. The family of the Causeway House was substantial, and had one member as a Privy Counselor at the court of Elizabeth I.

Another item to support William arriving from Wey, and in 1630, is the makeup of the others in Hingham in 1630. E.g., William Sprauge, b 1609, with his brothers Ralph and Richard, came in 1628 to Salem, and William Sprauge was sent specifically to help with the surveying and decisions on the place the Winthop fleet would land and set up the colony. The Spragues set up residences in Hingham after the Wintrop fleet arrived. The significance to the hunt for William Bucklin's place of origin is that William Sprague was a son of Edward Sprague, of Upway, Dorset, England. Edwards Sprauge of Upway was a fuller by trade, and his Fulling Mill was at Upwey. Upwey is up the river from Radipole, within walking distance. In the same manner, also, the Spragues seem to have moved to the Pawtucket area at about the same time as William Bucklin.

Likewise, another of the immigrants of the 1630 fleet was Thomas Holbrock, son of Sir Thomas, a knight. Thomas was born 1601 in Broadwey, Dorset, England, (again close to Wey, and on the same stream as Wey). In short the Wey area would be an area of excitement because of the persons associated with the early fleet of Winthrop. Thus we have men of William Bucklin's age, from the Wey area, going to Hingham in the 1630 time frame and then moving to the Pawtucket area at the same time that William moved.

The first author reporting on William Bucklin's immigration to New England was Charles Edward Banks, who in his books, The Winthrop Fleet of 1630, and Planters of the Commonwealth, records that William came in the Winthrop fleet of 1630. There is no regular passenger list of the passengers in the Winthrop fleet, but William's name does show up on Winthrop's journal notes, as a servant of John Plaistow, and that is what Bank's uses for his report.

Plaistow was a gentleman, from Essex. Space was limited in the Winthrop fleet ships. Only persons with the rank of noble or gentleman had space or temporary cabins on the upper deck. Winthrop's note that William was on board as a "servant" of Plaistow means that William had the privilege denied others of ready and daily access to the upper deck.

It would have been good strategy for a man who wished to save money on an exploratory and expensive trip to New England and who also wished for access to the upper deck, to agree to be a servant for a period of time for a gentleman immigrating to New England.

However, William's relationship to Plaistow got William before a court. In New England, Plaistow took four baskets of corn belonging to "Chickatabot" (probably an American Indian) in September, 1631. For this he was degraded from the title of gentleman, ordered to restore eight baskets of corn to Chickatabot, and to pay a fine of five pounds to the Colony. "His men" William Buckland and Thomas Andrew were ordered to be whipped for being accessories. Furthermore, Governor Winthrop was determined that his new colony should be a godly community; therefor, the Massachusetts Bay Colony early sent back to England those persons who were causing social problems. As a part of the sentence for his theft, Plaistow was sent back to England.

Some authors have noted that William's son Joseph was born in 1633, in England, and the evidence that Joseph came with his mother Mary Bosworth Bucklin to American in 1634. This has lead to some authors (e.g., the Bosworth Genealogy author) saying that William first came to the New World in 1634 on the ship Elizabeth Dorcas, but that is doubtful, because of the certainty of the Winthrop note, which clearly has William Bucklin on board one of the vessels of the 1630 Winthrop fleet.

A theory incorporating the know facts is that William first came to America as servant to Plaistow in 1630, then returned to England with Plaistow in 1631, and then came back to New England a second time after fathering Joseph. It may have been, or may not have been, that William came in 1634 when his wife Mary Bosworth and son Joseph came on the Elizabeth Dorcas. At least it would appear that William was in England in 1632/1633, because: Carl Boyer III, in his book "Ancestral Lines," says that the government authorities detained the ship Elizabeth Dorcas at Gravesend, Eng., from 22 Feb 1634 until the early spring of 1634 before it was determined that all passengers had secured the necessary papers (i.e., that they were Church of England members) for immigration. >From this fact and the fact of the age of Joseph at his death (from which we deduce that Joseph was born in 1633 and conceived nine months before the birth in 1633), we can reason that William must have been in England in 1632/1633 (assuming lawful issue).

Henry Sewall, a passenger on the Elizabeth Dorcas lent some money to the Bosworth family to help pay the Bosworth family passage, in 1634. On 7 July 1635, at Plymouth Court, the court ordered William Buckland, and three Bosworths (Jonathan, Nathaniel, and Benjamin Bosworth) to each pay Sewall __£ each. Only William paid his share at once; the Bosworths only paid after that date, and then only incomplete amounts at intervals.

The Bosworth Genealogy asserts that in Hingham, "Atlantic Ave was where the ship "Elizabeth brought the wife of William Buckland" (Mary Bosworth), his small son Joseph Bucklin, her mother Mary Bosworth and her brothers and father."

William was a proprietor of Hingham and had a land grant in Hingham, MA, on 2 Sep 1635. The land was on the north side of Weary-All Hill, now called Otis Hill.

Hingham is one of the oldest towns in Massachusetts. The original settlers, in 1633, came from Hingham, Norfolk County, England, and settled in what was then known as Bare Cove. Hingham lay close to a later town named Weymouth by the English settlers of that town. The nearby river was by 1665 known as the Weymouth River, which was one of the boundaries to the land stated in a grant from the Indians to the Hingham town fathers in that year. Hingham lay on the border-line between the jurisdictions of the Plymouth Colony (Mayflower Separatists) and the Massachusetts Bay Colony (Winthrop Puritans) ; and seems mostly to have been a result of the influx of colonists with the Winthrop organization.

William also received a town lot of five acres, located in what is now West Hingham. The Hingham records say:

"In 1635 Wm. Buckland was given a Town Lot and Our Lot at the foot of Otis Hill."

William acquired several parcels of realty during his lifetime, in Hingham, Rehoboth, and Attleboro. As late as 1650 he still owned land in Hingham in the Broad Cove area. He sold land in Hingham on 25 May 1661.
NOTE: At about the same time, 18 Apr 1661, William's brother in law Jonathan Bosworth, Sr., sold land in Hingham to Daniel Cushing [Anderson, Great Migration 1620].

It is said the Hingham railroad depot in the 1930's was the place where William had his lot.

An inventory of 22 Sep 1642 of the estate of Capt. Bozan Allen (a ship captain and merchant) of Hingham lists William as a debtor owing the estate a sum of money.

Hingham has an interesting and turbulent early history. The first settlers were a band of single and not entirely savory men, who came on the theory that earlier settlers had not done well because the early settlers had been encumbered with families and religion. By William's 1630 entry to Hingham, these earlier first settlers had given way to the type of persons characteristic of the Winthrop fleet. Later settlers brought men of substance who wanted to run the Hingham their way, to the discomfort of the Bay Colony government. (About 1645 the town of Hingham was in uproar, with some men being jailed for disobedience in regard to who were to be the officers of the town militia, and the town seeking the impeachment of Governor Winthrop.)

In 1636, Roger Willliams had settled in the Rehoboth, Rhode Island area (on the east side of the Pawtucket River) when he first fled the Massachusetts Bay Colony. When told that Massachusetts claimed this land, he moved to the west bank of the river and called his new settlement "Providence". The east bank of the river, Seekonk (Pawtucket) continued to be an area of religious dissenters who were not an approved group of persons by the Bay Colony for settlement in that area which they claimed as part of their colonial grant from England. Near Hingham is Weymouth. Weymouth was the site of religious dissension lead by Rev. Samuel Newman. Newman and a part of his congregation, for religious reasons, decided to leave the settled Bay Colony and move to the Rhode Island area of religious dissenters, purchased land in 1643 in what is now Pawtucket, Massachusetts. Rehoboth was on the east side of the Pawtucket River and about three miles from the Falls which were the heart of Pawtucket and the Jenks industrial community. The Rehoboth area had been purchased from the Indians in 1641 by John Hazell and in 1642 John Hazell resided there with 600 acres he owned on the Pawtucket River.

Today this land of Rehoboth is almost the same bounds as the east side of Pawtucket, RI. ( The former Rehoboth, MA, is now partly in East Providence, RI, and partly in Pawtucket, RI. The sequence is that there first was the area known as Seconet or Seekonk. In 1645 Seconet became Rehoboth. Rehoboth as a town purchased land to the north of the land of William Bucklin, which land was known as the "North Purchase". Attleboro , mentioned in some records in connection with the Bucklin family, became a separate town when it separated from Rehoboth in 1694 as the North Purchase land. Attleboro exchanged land with Rehoboth in 1710. Pawtucket joined Rhode Island in 1862.)

At about the time of the move of Newman and his group to Rehoboth for religious reasons that William seems to have been involved in the area. It is perhaps at this time that William decided to move west, across the short distance from the Bay Colony east to the bay/river edge of Rehoboth. Certainly, the Rehoboth Town Meeting Records of 1 Feb 1645 states:

"...At the same time the way to William Buckland's house is agreed on by those partyes which it doth conform."

William's house was in the area of the purchase of John Hasels. A large 600 acre tract of land on the east bank of the Pawtucket River had been purchased by John Hasels from the Indians, but the Massachusetts Bay colony insisted that they had jurisdiction over the land. Hasels divested himself of the land at the insistence of the colony, by selling to Edward Smith, who in turn had the same sort of troubles about the right to be on the land.

The date of 1656 is usually given as the date when William moved his family to Rehoboth, MA, from Hingham, because of the the Old Proprietary Records of Rehoboth which on that date show the land of William Bucklin recorded by his description as being:

"600 acres of land wch John Hasels wch I bought of Edward Smith bounded on Pawtucket River on the west & unto a Run yt somes from the cedar swamp on the east upon the south with lands yt was John Reads and upon the north the common as we go to Mr. Blaxtons."

Unless William obtained this land by some sort of credit, it seems that William was a man of some wealth, since he at that time also owned land in Hingham, and 600 acres is about a square mile of land, perhaps almost equal to land holdings of the entire congregation of Rev. Newman in their settlement.

I see nothing inconsistent with (1) William moving to Rehoboth (Pawtucket) on or before 1645, and settling by purchase or other agreement on the Hasels land , when the way to his house was agreed upon and noted in the town records, and (2) in 1656 or earlier buying the whole 600 acres from Hasels and Smith after their difficulties with the colony, and at that time recording his entire purchase in the town records. [Analysis provided by Leonard H. Bucklin]

NOTE: William's brother in law, Jonathan Bosworth, Sr., mysteriously sold, but the deeds were not recorded his houselots and a ten acre great lot, all before 1640. [Bosworth Genealogy 64]. No record of where he went to live is found until suddenly in about 1666 he shows up in regard to property at Rehoboth. See notes on Johanthan Bosworth, Sr.,].

According to the Plymouth Colony Records for 23 Feb 1657, at the town meeting for Rehoboth certain men agreed to go see what meadows they could find north of the town for purchase by the town. This land subsequently became known as the North Purchase and was immediately to the north of the Bucklin land on the river.

William sold land in Hingham on May 25, 1661

The exact line between the north side of Bucklin's land in Rehoboth, and the south border of the North Purchase was often in dispute for years after the 1657 "North Purcahse". On April 18, 1666, it was voted that a three rail fence be set up between the town's purchased lands on the plain "from Goodman Buckland's house to the Mill River" , separating Bucklin's land from the North Purchase land.

At Rehoboth, William participated in lot divisions of 1668, for these meadows north of the town which were referred to as the "North Purchase." The "North Purchase" was later established(1694) as the town of Attleboro, in Bristol County, Massachusetts with about 180 inhabitants.

On Feb 20, 1678, William deeded to his wife's brother Jonathan Bosworth, Senior, twelve acres "of upland in Wachamoket Neck". It is to be noted that the deed recognized the "government of New Plymouth in New England" as in control of the town of Rehoboth. Also of note is that Jonathan also seemed to be living in Rehoboth at the time, and this is about at the end the disastrous King Phillip's war which took so many lives and buildings.

Although living well outside the center of Rev. Newman s Rehoboth settlement (the center was called the Ring of the Green), William and his family were much a part of that community. William was not a Congregationalist and a member of the Newman Church, but apparently was a was a Baptist, later being affiliated with the Baptist Church in Swansea. Although not a member of the "Newman" church in Pawtucket, he did carpenter work on the church, and his son Joseph and many Bucklins are known to have been buried in the Newman church graveyard.

In 1656 William was chosen to serve on a grand jury in Rehoboth. Again, this suggests that William was well established by this time, because the grand jury was to be composed of men who were well acquainted with the persons and affairs of the area.

On 17 March 1657, William and Peter Hunt were engaged to enlarge the meeting house. On 9 Dec 1659, William was appointed, with a Lieut. Hunt, to "shingle the new end of the meeting house & to be done sufficiently as the new end of Goodman Paynes house, and they are to find nail & to be done by May day next ensuring provided that the frame is up in season--in consideration whereof they are to have 8 pounds to be paid in good merchantable wampan when their work is done"

According to the Plymouth Colony Records for 23 Feb 1657 William took on that day the oath of Fidelity, if not before, and therefore was listed in the colony's records as a "freeman" (which simply meant someone who had taken the formal oath of allegiance to the colonial government). The oath may have been in connection with the fact that the same day at the town meeting for Rehoboth certain men agreed to go see what meadows they could find north of the town for purchase by the town.

The only record of the death of William is in the Rehoboth Vital Record Death Book at Vol. 1, page 56, which only says "buried September 1, 1683". There is no note as to the place of death or the date of death. However, the date of death of William is commonly reported as 1 Sep 1683 and the place of death and burial as being in Rehoboth. No cemetery marker is known to exist as of the year 2000.
