Bucknell - meaning of the name.

I visited Bucknell, a small village in Shropshire, England yesterday. Some information in the St Mary's Church there says that the name of the village is derived from BUCCA - a Mercian personal name plus HALE - a waterside pasture, nook or corner. The village was listed in the Domesday Book as "Buckenhalle". Thought this may be of interest.
