From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Buckland is a village and civil parish in the borough of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England. The parish, which also includes the village of Laverton, had a population of 225 in 2010.

The name ‘Buckland’ originates from Anglo-Saxon ‘Boc-land’, meaning land assigned under a charter, as distinct from the ‘Folc-land’ which bases its ownership on folk-testimony. The Charter in this case dates to 709AD, when Coenred of Mercia gave the land to St Peter’s Abbey, Gloucester.
