Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1701
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1789
New Castle County
Delaware, USA

William was one of eleven children of John and Hannah (Brunsden) Buckingham. He was born in 1701 in Birmingham township of Chester County, PA.

William's siblings were: Hannah, Sarah, Esther, John, Abel, Alice, Margaret, Mary, James and Joseph.

On 20 Jul 1726 William was baptized in the Welsh Tract church and he married Jane James. She was the daughter of William James.

The couple had seven children:

1. Margaret, 1728-bef 1789
2. John, 1731-1735
3. Enoch, 1732- 1782, did not marry
4. William, 1734-1827, m. Jane Jones - 13 ch.
5. Hannah, 1736-1800, m. Wm Thomas - 7 ch.
6. Ruth, 1738-1826, m. Wm Cloud - 6 ch.
7. John, 1741-1794, m. Mary Bell - 7 ch.

For many decades William owned 100 acres of land in Upper Providence township of present day Delaware County, PA.

His will was written of 25 Mar 1783 and probated on 13 Oct 1789.

William and Mary were active in the church. In later years they were members of the London Tract Baptist Church.

Note, William's burial posting at this cemetery is not based on any proven facts. Many grave markers were washed away and destroyed by floods. If that was not enough, burial records from 1780-1830 were accidentally burned. William was a long time member of this church when he died and members were buried in the church yard.
