Destination : Leeds USA Ship : Germanic Port of Arrival : New York

J Buckland born 1883 England aged 3 (M)

Jeft Buckland born 1885 England 10/1/2 mths (M)

T Buckland born 1881 England aged 5 (M)

I am thinking that Nelson's children listed here are actually all daughters not sons after Eliza there was Anne ( called Tianne would explain the T) then came Jane ( would explain the J) then came Leanor ( in some Census called Edith very similar to Jeft,

(She was known to family as Leanor (personal notes from from Sandy)

I know that they had a daughter Leanor born ABT 1884 Liskeard,I am certain this is also Jeft, I think person who took names couldn't decide how to spell it.

As in later Census the first male child is Jamie born 1887 in USA, then Moses 1889 USA, which fits when they are in America, then last child William George, who  died young in 1907 and was born in UK

Thos & Kegar are Nelson parents ( Tenant) Tennett & Keziah Buckland

More information : From Sandy.

All the Senior Buckland men were Horse dealers.

Tennet & Keziah Buckland say they came across in 1861 also state they have 4 sons now the one I think that is missing is our

own Great-Grandfather Nelson Buckland who married Betsey Smith as he returned to England with his own family and died 2 years earlier in 1908 in Kingsbridge Devonshire. Mark & Nelson Buckland sons of Moses were both labouring where they lived.

Kissar (Keziah) Buckland was down as Fortune Teller. All said they could read & write ,The Large family had no occupation or connection to Buckland's that I know of. I have been told that Tennet & Keziah Buckland are buried in New Jersey there is a cemetery just across the Hudson river from New York that was mostly used for Romany  burials called Grove Church Cemetry.


The other thing is there are several daughters missing as of yet no idea where they are could be still in UK and married
