Birth: ABT 1283 in Nether Wallop Buckland, Stockbridge, Hampshire, England

Nether Wallop Buckland, Hampshire:
The manor of NETHER WALLOP BUCKLAND, known alternatively in later days as PLACE (Buklond, xv cent.; Bukland, xvi cent.), belonged in the latter half of the 13th century to the family of Buckland. The overlordship belonged to Edmund Plantagenet Earl of Kent, and continued to be held by his descendants until the beginning of the 15th century.
In 1270 John Buckland granted a messuage and a carucate of land in Wallop to Hugh son of Hugh Buckland and his issue for a rent of £20 during the life of John, with reversion in default of issue to John and his heirs for ever. Hugh had three sons, Hugh, William and Robert, and one daughter, Clarice, on whom a messuage, 140 acres of land and 42s. rent in Nether Wallop were settled in fee-tail in succession in 1271 with contingent remainder to one Ralph Buckland and his heirs. John son of Ralph came eventually into possession and died seised of the manor in 1362,) leaving a brother and heir, Sir Thomas Buckland, who settled it in 1377 on himself and his wife Maud with reversion on their death to his daughter and heir Margaret wife of Sir John Wroth. Sir Thomas died in 1378-9 and was followed by Sir John Wroth, who died in 1396, leaving a son and heir John. The latter died in 1407, leaving as his heir his son John, who died young without issue, and was followed by his sister and heir Elizabeth wife of Sir William Palton, who held the manor until her death in 1413. Her cousin and heir Sir John Tiptoft son of Agnes, sister of her father Sir John Wroth, succeeded her in possession of Nether Wallop Buckland, which he held until his death in 1443, when he was followed by his son and heir John. The latter was created Earl of Worcester in 1449, but adhering to the house of York in the Wars of the Roses was taken prisoner and beheaded on Tower Hill for high treason in 1470. His son and heir Edward died a minor in 1485, leaving as his heirs his three paternal aunts, Philippa wife of Thomas Lord Ros, Joan wife of Sir Edmund Ingoldsthorpe and Joyce wife of Sir Edmund Sutton or Dudley. The manor of Nether Wallop Buckland fell to the share of Philippa, then a widow, and passed from her to her son and heir Edmund Lord Ros, who died unmarried and of unsound mind in 1508, leaving as his heirs his sisters Eleanor wife of Sir Robert Manners and Isabel wife of Sir Thomas Lovell. Nether Wallop Buckland passed to the latter, but on the death of Sir Thomas Lovell without issue in 1524 the manor passed by will to his wife's great-nephew Thomas Manners Lord Ros. Thomas Lord Ros, then Earl of Rutland, conveyed it in 1541 to Sir George Paulet, on whose death it passed to his son and heir Sir Hampden Paulet.

NOTE: The above text does not state the existence of this John, going from Ralph to John (skipping this John), then his brother Thomas, and then (incorrectly) to Thomas's daughter Margaret, wife of John Roth. I am going with the article on Brookley, which states that Ralph had a son John living 1334 & a grandson named John who d. 1362, and the latter's brother Sir Thomas died without issue, and John's daughter (Thomas's niece) was married to John Wroth. The Brookley article was better in the later generations of the Buckland family and the article on Nether Wallop was better on the earlier generations.
I assume that the John Buckland mentioned in 1270 was the father of Ralph because Hugh Buckland and his heirs appeared to eventually die without issue, when it reverted to Ralph's heir John, and therefore Ralph himself was an heir of the elder John in 1270.
