Commemoration

Thomas Buckenham's headstone in the an unknown place reads Sacred/ to the memory of/ Thomas BUCKENHAM/ who died Decr 15th/ 1841/ aged 43 years/ He took the cup of life to sip/ too bitter twas to drain/ he meekly took it from his lips/ and went to sleep again. Note I believe he was 63 not 43.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: There is no mention of BUCKENHAM or YULL in the Swaffham 1854 directory, but there is a Brightwell BUCKENHAM who is wheelwright in 1845. There is no mention of YULL..
  • Research note 01: I believe this couple were listed on the 1841 census as Thomas BUCKINGHAM 40 (age incorrect) a smith, Sarah 40 and Elizabeth 12. If I am correct then Elizabeth is the child of Thomas' previous wife..
