      Published privately for William Dickinson Buckner by the Genealogical Association, 1907, 415 pgs.
      page 31/32

      We know that his estate must have been quite extensive. On Oct. 20, 1691, he was granted 3125 acres in old Rappahannock County, "on the south side of Golden Vale creek," adjoining his land, and the lands belonging to himself, Bryan and Royston. In this grant he is alluded to as John Buckner, Jr., of Gloucester County."

      In April, 1702, he was granted 3080 acres of land on Herring Creek, in Pamunkey Neck, King and Queen County.
      On Dec. 23, 1714, " John Buckner of Gloucester, gent, and Robert Ballard of King and Queen County, are granted 400 acres of land on the south fork of the Mattapony, in King and Queen County.

      There is a tradition that his wife was Anne Ballard, but nothing certain is known about this. That her Christian name was Anne is ascertained from a deed which she made in Essex County, dated July 17, 1727, in which she mentions two of her sons---John and William-as well as her husband, John Buckner.

      There is some doubt as to the number of children of John and Anne Buckner. There may have been only the two sons mentioned in the above deed, but if his son William is the William Buckner Gloucester County, Virginia., who removed to Maryland, it is evident that he had six other children. The records of Baltimore County, Maryland., show that William Buckner received deeds from Thomas Todd and William Todd, trustees of Thomas Todd, deceased, late

      George Elliott, married, 1732, Patience Colgate (widow of William Buckner, d. 1731, of Gloucester county, Virginia, whom he married, 1724. He moved to Maryland in 1722, and left one daughter, who soon died.) The brothers and sisters of William Buckner, in 1733, sued George Elliott and Patience, his wife. They were: Thomas, Philip, Ann, Elizabeth and Mary Buckner and Charles Debois and Christian, his wife. (William Buckner, Mr. Tyler thinks, was the son of John, who was a son of John and Anne Buckner.) In 1727, John Buckner, of St. Mary's parish, Essex, gave to his son, William, 500 acres in Essex, "part of the tract given me by my mother, Anne Buckner." In Stafford county is an old will of a John Buckner, 1752, wife, Elizabeth, daughter, [Page 366] Susannah. John Buckner, Sr., died 1695. Inventory in Essex Records.--Chancery Papers.

      They had the following children:

      I am posting this in case anyone else is researching their ancestors in York County, VA.

      While at the York Co. Courhouse, researching my ancestor, Capt. John Ballard of Yorktown, VA. I ran across this will of John Gibbins 1726/27. It is in the "Orders & Will, etc. book #16 ----1720-1729

      There is a partial index in the front of the book, but, I did not find John Gibbins there, I had to just start at the front of the book and start reading through until I came across it.

      There seem to be differing opinions concerning the last name of Capt. Ballard's wife Elizabeth. In most of the internet references that I have seen, she is referred to as Elizabeth Bland (daughter of a Rev. Bland). I believe that the Gibbins will tells us definitely the name of Capt. John's, wife. Elizabeth
      Gibbins. In John Gibbins will he names his son John Ballard & wife Elizabeth Ballard (his daughter).

      I had seen Capt. John Ballard's will transcribed on the net and it mentioned he left something to a "Miss Jary Gibbins". When I read the original Capt. John Ballard's will, it appears to me not to read "Miss Jary Gibbins", but, "Miss Sary Gibbins". This original document's other capital letter "J" looks quite different, but the first letter of the name Sary is quite consistent with the rest of the document. That being said, if you look at John Gibbins will, he had a daughter Sarah, it is also my opinion that her nickname could well have been "Sary". I have seen this treatment of Sarah in other peoples documents. To me, all of this seems to be conclusive proof that Capt. John Ballard's wife's name was Elizabeth Gibbins.

      My transcription of the John Gibbins will is as follows (if you find mistakes, please let me know! I
      will leave blanks when not sure of word):

      In the name of God Amen I John Gibbins of York Town in York County being sick and weak, but of perfect sense & memory do make my last will & testament in manner following imprimis. I leave my Soul to God that gave it me and my body to the earth from whence it came to be decently buried by my executors hereafter named.
      Item, I give and bequesth to my son John my two lots in York Town which I bought of Parson Andrews numbered (64 & 65) to him and his heirs for ever but if my son John should die without heirs then my will is that my two lots abovementioned should be sold and the produce equally divided between these my thre children, Lawrence, Thomas & Sarah.

      Item, I give and bequeath to my son John my tract or parcel of land laying in Yorkhampton Parish in the
      County of York to him & heirs forever and I give to my son John my watch.

      Item, I give and bequeath to my son Lawrence my lot in York Town number (71) where my Ordinary now stands to him & his heirs for ever and I give to my son Lawrence my _____ _____.

      Item, I give and bequeath to my son Thomas my lot in York Town which I bought of Stephen Fuller facing the lot which I have given to my son John Ballard to him & his heirs for ever.

      Item, I give and bequeath my son John Ballard & my daughter Elizebeth Ballard my lot in York Town which I escheated from the Gibsons to them & their heirs forever.

      Item, I give and bequeath to my daughter Sarah Gibbins my lot in York Town joining to the Ordinary lot known by the number (67) to her & her heirs for ever.

      Item, I give and bequeath to my loving wife the bed we usually lye upon with all its furniture & one trunk
      which was her mother's, my black horse & furniture.

      Item, I give and bequeath unto my son John that bed & furniture which is in the house that Doct. Armor now lives in.

      Item, I give to my daughter Mary Baptist one bed, one rug, one pair of blanketts and one pair of holland
      sheets.

      Item, I desire that the rest of my beds with the furniture belonging to them, be sold, my grandson John
      Harvey to have six pounds of it, of the produce there, of the remainder to be equally divided between my
      heirs, three children Lawrence, Thomas & Sarah.

      Item, I give and bequeath unto my loving wife half a doz. chairs (viz) three leather chairs, & three rush
      chairs one tea table & three cows. My will and desire is that all the rest of my Estate both real and
      personal of what kind soever be sold the payment of my debts to be made and the remainder if any to be given as follows to my daughters Mary Baptist & Elizabeth Ballard & Sarah Gibbins, each of them one gold ring of fiveteen shillings price and likewise to Sarah Nelson, Mary Phillips, Rebecca Phillips each of them one gold ring of fiveteen shillings price if any then remains, I desire it may divided equally between my wife & children (Viz.) John Gibbins, Lawrence, Thomas & Sarah. Lastly I _____ ____ & appoint my loving wife Anne Gibbins and my son John Gibbins my whole and sole Exectrs. of this my last will and testement. Revoking all wills heretofore by me made in Witness whereof I have sat my hand & seal this nineth day of March in the year of our Lord 1726.
