Hi everyone,

Does anyone in the society have the name Buck in their family tree?

I just discovered one of mine, Francis Morris Buck, originally from Brierfield, who seems to have blown in.

He was at 4 Chapel Court in the 1911 census, and his probate record (which I just posted to the Wills forum) gives his address 9 Nelson Road Haggate.

He isn't the only Buck from my family tree who settled in Briercliffe; there were others, but I'd have to dig out their names.

I'd be very interested to hear anything about Bucks in Briercliffe, and especially if there are any gravestones - I don't see any in the website.

All information gratefully received.
Dave

Have you searched the forum Dave? There's about 30 matches, many are not referring to Buck as a surname (it appears in general text) but there are a couple of references that may be of interest to you. (search is top right of the forum page)

Hi Mel,

Yes, I'd searched. If only I'd noticed the links at the bottom of the results leading to two other pages of results. :oops: Silly me

I can claim the Edgar Buck at 4 Chapel Court who was quoted in the article about the fire at Haggate Primary School.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=626&hilit=buck&start=30

He was the son of Francis Morris Buck whose probate entry I posted.

Does anyone have a date for that edition of the Burnley Express, or better still a date for the actual fire? The best I can manage is 1962, from a more recent article on the Burnley Express's website.

I can also claim the William Buck, Stone Mason, who was mentioned on the indenture of John Ormerod

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1598&p=8609&hilit=buck#p8609

He lived at "Nutshaw, Hapton" in the 1861 and 1871 census (I think that's actually at Clowbridge) and moved to Pine St before the 1881 census.

The other two William Bucks might be mine too - I think I need to do some more research.

Dave

Hi Sylvia,

Yes, that's the family. Their father was Francis Morris Buck, who married Elizabeth Heap. There were two other children, Harold and Sarah Ellen. One more, Irene, died in infancy.

Hi Mel,

thanks very much for those snippets.

Francis M. in the first snippet is the starting point of this thread. Ernest is his son.

Elizabeth (2nd snippet) was Francis M.'s wife.

I'm having trouble identifying Edna and husband Roland (3rd snippet). They married in 1935 according to lancashirebmd: Roland Hanson Buck and Edna May Stanworth. I haven't found a positive birth record for Roland yet, although I did find a 1912 death for a Roland Hanson Buck in Shrewsbury, so maybe he's a blow-in, although I can't completely discount him because Anna (4th snippet) was born in Shropshire.

Mrs Buck of the 4th snippet is Anna (nee Morris). Harry would be her son Henry, who married a Maretta Stacey at Holy Trinity, Habergham Eaves, in 1905. Maretta died in 1907 and as far as I know Henry didn't remarry.

All the best,
Dave
