Some Barber History

The early history of the Barbers shows that they owned the Manor of Moreton, or Moortown, in the parish of Curry Rivell in Somersetshire, before they came into Wiltshire or Dorsetshire. Their arms were -
Argent, two chevrons between three cinquefoils gules.
Crest: a stag's head couped at the neck argent, collared gules.
The family occurs twice int the Dorsetshire Visitation of 1623 : - William Ernley, of Chalbury, co. Dorset (living 1623) marr. Ann d. Roger Barber of Handley, co. Dorset.

Cattistock Church, Stone

Catistock Church. Around the verge of a flat stone, upon a tomb is the following inscription:

"Hie jacet Guilielmus Bishop, nuper de Holwaye, cum Brida, uxore sua ante annos novem prius defuncta: oblit 26 due Decembris 1621, acetatis suae 83."

Bride, daughter of Alexander of Wolcomb buried 1613.

Melbury Bubb

The church of St. Mary the Virgin stands at the foot of Bubb Down which derives its name from Bubba, a Saxon, who lived there. The presence of a Saxon font in Melbury Bubb church suggests that there has been a church here from very early days. Nothing remains prior to 1474 when the church was rebuilt during the time of the Rector Walter Buckler (brother of John of Causeway), whose initials are carved on some shieldson the tower. This tower, so beautiful against the hill, is almost all that remains of his church. The rest was virtually rebuilt in 1854, probably reproducing the main features of the older church and incorporating some of the stained glass.

The grave of Alexander Buckler, is just outside and opposite the church door. The Buckler family at one time lived in the Old Manor House next to the Church. A descendant of the family still lives in the parish at Holywell. Next to Alexander's tomb is the tomb of his grandson Thomas who died in 1634.

Lower part of the west window. This was put there in 1886 and bears a Latin inscription which translates:

"Sacred to the memory of William Buckler, a descendant of Alexander, nephew of Sir Walter, who settled in Maryland in 1793. Erected by the filial peity Thomas Hepburn Buckler in 1886."

Stockwood, Dorset

Stockwood Mill. Used for tucking and dying, and was owned by Alexander and Elizabeth Buckler sometime between 1560 and 1590. It is recorded in their wills of 1567 and 1579. It is only a couple of miles by road from Melbury Bubb.
