  • Full Name: Robert Buckner
  • Served: 1712 - 1714
  • Bio Information: ROBERT BUCKNER, who probably was born before 1681, was the son of Philip Buckner, of Stafford County, who died about 1700. He lived in Gloucester County and served as clerk of the house of Burgesses at the assembly of 1712-1714. Richard Buckner, his successor at the assembly of 1715, may have been his first cousin. In 1727 a Robert Buckner, of Gloucester, owned land in Spotsylvania County that was identified in an act of assembly as part of the site of the newly established town of Fredericksburg, but whether that landowner was the same man who had been clerk of the House a decade earlier is not known.
