      Owner of 500 acres of land in Rappahannock County on Sept. 22, 1682, it being part of a tract called Golden Vale." Either he, or his son, also named Richard, patented Lands in King and Queen County, viz.: 70 acres to Richard Buckner of Essex, Feb. 1, 1720; and 4500 acres in Drysdale Parish, Oct. 28, 1723. His residence was in Essex County, as a grant dated 1709, gives to him an island containing 20 acres on the north side of the Rappahannock River in Richmond County, lying near the plantation where said Buckner resides, about two miles below Taliaferro's Mount. On Aug. 17, 1715, he patented 179 acres in St. Mary's Parish, Essex, "adjoining the two tracts belonging to said Buckner of 1000 and 300 acres."
      Essex County was formed from old Rappahannock in 1692, and Richard Buckner was clerk of the new County of Essex in 1703 and again in 1712. Whether he was Clerk continuously during that period is not definitely known, as the records of the county are incomplete, but the recorded dates of his appointment are still on file. He was also Clerk of the House of Burgesses in 1714.
      Of the four sons of John Buckner, Richard stands out prominently, from the fact, that his descendants were more conspicuous in the affairs of the colony and afterwards of the republic.
      Richard Buckner is said to have married Elizabeth Cooke of Gloucester County, but there is no documentary evidence to prove this assertion. It is believed that Richard's daughter, Elizabeth Buckner, also married a Cooke, viz.: Mordecai Cooke son of Mordecai Cook the immigrant who was Sheriff of Gloucester in 1698,
