Christopher Buckle is my great, great, great, great, great grandfather – I think!
I can confidently trace my ancestors back to a Christopher Buckle born in 1745 and I’m reasonably confident that his father was Christopher Buckle born in 1712. Certainly several Ancestry family trees include this connection. But I can’t nail a document to make this a 100% certainty.
However given the small population of the area and the fact that Christopher was married to Margaret Cook at Pickhill, I’m going to hang on to him as my great, great, great, great, great grandfather!
Christopher Buckle was baptised on September 23rd 1712 at the parish church of St John the Baptist in Adel.
Adel is thirty five miles south of Pickhill and I think there’s a reasonably strong chance that this is my ancestor. In which case his father was Henry Buckle. But there isn’t really any evidence to make this a definite connection so I’m not going any further back on this branch of the family tree.
And that’s all I know about the early life of Great X 5 Grandfather Buckle.
But a Christopher Buckle definitely married Margaret Cook and the rest, as they say, is history!
