FAMILY HISTORY: BUCKNER
THE LIFE OF JOHN GRISSLE BUCKNER:
|Name: John Grissle Buckner|
|Father: John Buckner|
|Mother: Eliza Fitzpatrick|
|Baptism Date: 6 March 1831|
|Birthplace: Hampstead, London, England|
|John Grissle Buckner is a bit of a mystery at this point. His middle name, Grissle, was a bit of a puzzle as it is an unusual name and I suspected that it may have
been a surname from within the family. Recently I found the marriage of Jeremiah Fitzpatrick and Ann Grissell. I believe that these are Eliza Fitzpatrick's parents and that John's
unusual middle name is his grandmother's maiden name - even if the spelling is slightly different.
The last record I have of him is the 1871 Census when he was a 40 year old dock labourer living with his widowed mother.
He was unmarried at the time of the 1871 Census and I have not been able to find any record of a marriage or death after that date. It is possible that, like his brothers Samuel and Charles, he emigrated - but to where?

|1:||John Grissle Buckner's baptism at St John's Church in Hampstead did not record his date of birth and, as he was born before the start of civil registration in England - which began on 1 July 1837 - we may never know his actual date of birth.|
