Generation No. 2

2. WILLIAM2 BUCKMAN (EDWARD1) was born 1650 in Billingshurst, Sussex, England, and died October 09, 1716 in Makefield, Bucks, Pennsylvania. He married (1) SARAH ? Abt. 1674 in Billinghurst, Sussex, England. She was born 1658 in , , England, and died May 10, 1690 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He married (2) ELIZABETH WILSON September 05, 1706 in Middletown MM, Bucks, Pennsylvania. She was born Abt. 1682, and died March 30, 1732 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Notes for WILLIAM BUCKMAN:
History of Bucks County Pennsylvania, p.673: William Buckman arrived on ship "Welcome" in August 1682 along with Sarah and Mary, and William Penn.
In Penn's Colony, Vol 1, Passengers and Ships: William Buckman, wife Mary, children Sarah and Mary arrived on the "Welcome". They lived near Penn in Sussex (there is still a Buckman's Corner just north of Chiltington) and they attended Shipley Meeting. Edward (William's father) and Thomas Buckman had bought 500 acres of land from Penn, but it seemed Edward died and William took his place on the "Welcome". Widow Buckman, Joan Bagham, arrived at the same time with sons, Edward, Thomas and daughter, Ruth. They reached Bucks county that fall when William arrived there and spent the first winter in a cave near Fallsington (not too uncomfortably perhaps as the widow had brought two thousand pounds of personal luggage with her).
Later, in same book, William's wife's name is given as Sarah. It also says that Joan, Edward and Thomas did not survive the trip.

Burial: August 11, 1716, Bucks county, Pennsylvania
Occupation: Carpenter

Notes for SARAH ?:
Sarah ? is reported to have died in childbirth - there is also a notation for the name Mary in parentheses - meaning not certain.


Children of WILLIAM BUCKMAN and SARAH ? are:
i. THOMAS3 BUCKMAN, b. July 04, 1676, Billingshurst, Sussex, England; d. 1682, at sea.
ii. SARAH BUCKMAN, b. September 10, 1677, Billingshurst, Sussex, England; d. in infancy.

Notes for SARAH BUCKMAN:
The following excerpt is from page 77 "The Welcome Claimants Proved, Disproved and Doubtful" by George E. McCracken, Ph.D., F.A.S. G., F.A.A.R., Professor, Drake University and Editor, The American Genealogist, Publication of the Welcome Society of Pennsylvania Number 3, 1970.
Sarah Buckman, second child and oldest daughter of William Buckman by his first wife Sarah ---- was born in England, probably Billingshurst, Sussex, on 10 9th month 1677. She is registered as a Welcome passenger having arrived when she was about 5 years of age. She was not mentioned as living in her father's will in 1716, but her husband and her three children are mentioned, so that it is probable that Sarah died vita patris some years before. An an unknown date she had married Edward Beck who is named as son-in-law in William Buckman's will and in such a position that we must
conclude that it was Sarah who married Edward Beck. --------Of the children named in the will of Edward Beck, only the eldest had been named in the will of their grandfather Buckman, so the other children must have been by the second wife.
