      Peyton's first documented land transaction is dated September 1739: Peyton Buckner of Hamilton Parish, Prince William County, sold to Anthony Thornton of St Paul's Parish, Stafford County, 50 acres of land in St Paul's Parish, which was supposedly part of a patent to Frances Dade and sold to Philip Buckner, November 1684.
