My 3X Great Uncle

Christopher Buckle is the second son of Christopher and Dorothy Buckle (my 4X Great Grandparents).

The only record of Christopher’s birth in 1775 that I’ve found doesn’t identify the church where he was baptised. But all his eight siblings were baptised at St Mary’s, Wath, Yorkshire, so I think it’s a safe bet that he was too.

There’s a record on Find My Past for the burial of a Christopher Buckle in the parish church at Well which is in the vicinity of Wath and Pickhill. There’s a degree of probability that this could be an accurate record for Christopher. If so, his date of burial was 7th September 1834 which makes him about fifty nine years old when he died.

And that’s all I can glean about Christopher Buckle.

The parish church of St Michael, Well has a very fine tomb within the building but I’m sure Christopher was buried outside in the churchyard.
