      Buckland is a rare American example of the familiar axial English village pattern. The Main Street of the Town extends from the main house entrance gate. Both Buckland Hall and the Town of Buckland stand on the “Broad Run Tract” originally owned by the sixth Lord Fairfax, who conveyed this land to his agent, Robert (King) Carter. Carter conveyed the land to his sons and son-in-law, who in turn sold the land to Samuel Love in 1774. Love began construction of the main house, a single pile stone residence commonly attributed to architect William Buckland, though this affiliation is not documented.

      Samuel Love’s sons, Samuel, John, Charles, and Augustine, served as Virginia Regiment Officers during the Revolutionary War and returned to transform Buckland into a vibrant mercantile center. Beside the existing mill, and at the base of the lane leading to the main house, they built an assortment of secondary structures for production of farm goods. Soon, the distillery, stone quarry, blacksmith, tannery, stores, and a second mill called “Kinsley” built in 1794 by John and Charles, were operating and were frequented by travelers. Outside merchants arrived, leased adjoining parcels and built stores of their own. When Samuel Love the elder died in 1787, John Love inherited the main house. By the end of the eighteenth century there were additional shopkeepers, a wheelwright, cooper, apothecary, boot/shoe manufacturer, saddler, woolen factory, two taverns, and a church – the essentials of a small town.

      In 1797, by petition to the Virginia General Assembly, John Love laid out a grid of lots around the irregular cluster of earlier shops and outbuildings described in this document as “already built upwards of twenty good houses occupied by tradesmen and merchants.” These buildings included “considerable manufactorys of grain” and a stone distillery on lot 29. The petition further recommended “Buckland as a proper place for establishing a town and possessing singular advantages over any other situation within a considerable distance.” The petition also carefully described all of the natural amenities afforded at this site. The General Assembly established the forty-eight lott Plan of the Town on 15 January 1798.

      1st Sergeant Samuel Love, 3d Reg., CL

      In the National Archives are several months worth of Muster Rolls of Captain Philip Richard Francis Lee's Company, 3d Virginia Regiment, Continental Line.

      On the roll for November 1777, 1st Sergeant Samuel Love is listed as present for duty. This company had recently fought in the Battles of Germantown (Oct 1777) and Brandywine (Sep 1777). Captain Lee was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine.

      The soldiers in Captain Lee's company were recruited from Fauquier and Prince William Counties.
      Prince William Militia in the Prince William County Order Book for 1778-1779

      A second militia company was commanded by Captain John Linton in July 1778. His
      company’s officers were 1st Lieutenant Robert Warren, 2nd Lieutenant Samuel Love and Ensign
      William Linton

      Samuel Love was a 3rd Virginia veteran, serving with Captain Philip Richard Francis Lee of Prince William County. Love enlisted February 6, 1776 in Capt Phill Lee’s company as a sergeant and served from February 1776 until January 1778 when his enlistment expired. Sergeant Love was discharged at Yorktown, Pennsylvania. In January 1785, Colonel Grayson received Samuel Love’s certificate for the balance of his full pay for £18 15s 15d as a sergeant in the Continental Infantry.
      Samuel Love apparently did not apply for a pension for his Virginia Continental service.

      The July 1779 court orders deal with a number of local promotions for militia officers: Samuel Love was recommended to be a 1st lieutenant; William Reeve took his oath as a 2nd lieutenant and Isaac Smith took his oath as an ensign in the county militia.
