THE NAME BUCKLEY:
The name Buckley is English. It means "one who came from Bulkeley (bullock pasture), in Cheshire, England." The name also means "the handsome cleric or scholar." A town named Buckley is now in Clwyd, Wales, on the border with England. Cheshire is associated with the Earls of Chester. Their castle later was sold to Henry III (who reigned from 1216-1272) in 1264. Beeston Castle of Chesire was also the stronghold of Richard II. He was said to have hid his royal treasure in Beeston in 1399. Chester, Chesire was a Royalist town from the statrt of the English Civil War, and it suffered for its ooyalty with almost three years of semi-starvation during various seiges. A shrine to St. Warburga, Princess of Mercia is in Chester. from ancestry.com











Edward Buckeley Brief Family History
For eleven generations the Bulkeley had lived no more than twenty miles from Beeston Castle. The castle it self was begun about 1220 when the oldest known Bulkeley was a mature man, and it had played its part in many a skirmish. B y th e time the twelfth generation of the se Bulk ele ys was b orn i n the 1500s, the castle was desc ribed a s sh attered a nd rui nous. The early 16th century was a time of turmoil. The Renai s s a n ce and its child, the Protestant Reformation, wer e sw ee pi n g in waves of liberation and conflict across E urope . I n E ng land the sentiment against the foreign Pop e an d th e ric h cl ergy was growing. In 1533 Henry VIII m arrie d Ann e Bole yn, a nd the next year, by the Act of S uprema cy, h e mad e himsel f the only supreme head of th e Churc h of Eng lan d the brea k between England and Rom e was co mplete.

It was , perhaps, th e next year , 1540, tha t Edwar d Bulkeley was bo rn. And i t was into t he new Churc h of Eng land that he was b aptiz ed. By the time Edward was a teenager it was determine d t h a t h e was to become a scholar, and he was sent to C ambr id ge , 12 5 miles from his native fields of Cheshir e and S alo p . There , in the fall term Michaelmas of 15 55, he e nter e d St. Joh n s College with other 14 and 1 5 year olds .

Rev. Edward Bulkeley Bio
REV. EDWARD BULKELEY (Rev.) - EDWARD BULKELEY, D.D., second son of Thomas Bulkeley of Woore, Shropshire, by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Randall Grosvenor, was born not far from 1540. He matriculated pensioner from St. John's College, Camhridge, Michaelmas, 1555; Scholar, 1555;, B.A.,1559/6O M.A., 1563; B.D., 1569; DD. 1578; Fellow, 1560. He obtained the rectorship of Odell in Bedfordshire, probably in 1571. He "compounded" for the living at Odell, 6 Mar. 1571/2, as it is shown by the Bishops Certificates of the Diocese of Canterbury.* This means that he then paid to his superior his first year's salary, as was then the established practice in the English Church.
He married; proably about 1566, OLIVE IRBY,born say 1547, buried at Odell, 10 Mar. 1614/5, daughter of John and Rose (Overton) Irby, by whom he had three sons and tweIve daughters.
It- is very difficult to learn much of the personal history of a minister who lived in the sixteenth century and who, by the very nature of his calling, did not figure in the political annals of his generation, He was Prebend of Chester, 1574; of Westminster, of Lichfield, 1594; and was Vicar of St. Mary, Shrewsbury,1578-82. We know that he was one of the commissioners appointed by the Bishop of Lincoln in 1608 for the "Levye of Armour" in Bedfordshire among the clergy. We owe to the late Col. Banks the following interesting item from Shrewsbury Corporation Record, Burgess Roll, 1580: Edward Bulkeley of Shrewsbury professor of theology, son of Thomas, admitted burges and has issue Nathaniel, aged 6; Mary, aged 13; Frances, aged 12; Judith, aged 10; Martha, aged 8; Deborah, aged 5; Dorcas, aged 3; Elizabeth, aged 1. Rev. Richard Madockes of Woodhall.[Odell], co. Bedford, in his will dated 15 Aug. 1606, proved 27 Nov. 16O6, after providing for his relatives in Shrewsbuy, gave legacies to Mr. Doctor Bulkley, Mistress Olive Bulkley, and their daughter Mistress Elizabeth Bulkley. and appointed Edward Bulkley, D.D., and pastor, sole executor. Dr. Bulkeley's daughter the "Mistress Elizabeth" referred to above, married Richard Whittingham, of Sutterton, co. Lincoln. He in his will, dated 6 Mar. 1615, proved 1 Apr. 1618, made provision for his wife Elizab├Ęth, by whom he then had no children, and his own heirs; and then gave legacies to his "brother" Mellowes' children to William Ingoldsbie, a son of brother Ingoldsbie, clerk, and. the rest of sister Ingoldsbie's children, and to Olive Welbie and all the rest of her brothers and Sisters; also to his father-in-law, Mr. Doctor Buckley, his brother-in-law Mr. Peter Buckley, and the latter's son Edward; and made Mr. Anthony Ingoldsbie, of Fishtoft, clerk, one of the supervisors of the will. Dr. Bulkley was a moderate Puritan; he resigned his pastorate in 1609, probably because of increasing age, and died at Odell early in Jan. 1620/1. His burial on 5 Jan. 1620/1 was entered in the Odell registers by his son Peter, who had succeeded him as Rector. The will of Edward Bulkley late of "Woodhall" Bedford, doctor of theology, deceased, was proved Jan. 162O/1, and a commission to administer was granted to Peter Bulkley, son of the said deceased, and executor named in the will [westminster Act Book, No. 3, fo. 59] The will does not exist, either filled or in the register.

EARLY BULKELEY FAMILY
1540 - 1621 , England
For eleven generations the BULKELEYS had lived no more than 20 miles
from Beeston Castle. The castle itself was begun about 1220, when the oldest
known BULKELEY was a mature man, and played a part in several skirmishes.
By the time the 12th generation was born in the 1500's. the castle was described
as shattered and in ruins. It was in 1540 that Edward BULKELEY was born and
baptised into the new Church of England. By the time he was a teenager,
it was determined that he should be a scholar, and he was sent to Cambridge,
125 miles from home. In 1555 he entered St. John's college with 14 and 15-year-olds.
Cambridge was by then 300 years old, but St. John's had just been foubnded in 1511.
Newer yet was Trinity College, founded by Henry VIII in 1546, as a symbol of
the Crown's strong support of the new Protestant toward learning, and still, today,
the largest college in the university.
Edward followed the normal course of study earning his BA degree in 1560,
when he was made a fellow of the college. Hw received his MA degree in 1563, at
which time he decided to be a priest, and went on to get his BD in 1569.
In 1566, Edward married Olive IRVY, who was 19 years old. John and Rose
(OVERTON) IRBY, and descended from a long line of Lincolnshire IRBYS.
Because she was from eastern England, Edward probabbly met her at Cambridge,
rather than at home.
When he was just past 30, Edward obtained the rectorship pf Odell
(pronunced O'dl) in Bedford, less than 30 miles from Cambridge. Here he and Olive
spent the rest of their lives, except for four years in Shrewsbury, serving a rural, out of the way parish, and for raising 11 children. Dr. BULKELEY resigned his post in 1609, due to failing health, and it was taken up immediately by his son, Peter. Edward and Olive continued to live near Odell, but she died in a few years.
The old parish register of burials reads:
10 MAR 1615, Mrs. Olive BULKELEY
THE WYFFE OFMASTER Edward BULKELEY, DOCTOR
Six years later, with his own hand, Peter BULKELEY recorded his father's burial:
5 JAN 1621, the Right Worshipful Mr. Edward BULKELEY
Doctor of Divinitie.
The church in England in Edward's time was a "tactful compromise, and imprecise melding of
Catholicism and Reformation traditions, but it was to be uniform and compulsory. " Though the Catholics on the right, and the Protestants on the left, clamored and plotted for change, Elizabeth and the Bishops held this Anglican compromise together until the end of the century. Edward was a moderate Puritan. from ancestry.com
