This is the transcribed will of William Buckner of Abbots Langley, Herts., 1607 (UK Public Record Office Catalogue Reference: Prob/11/110).

William Buckner of Abbots Langley is one 17th century Buckner I know very little about, despite a reasonable amount of identifying information in the will. I suspect he's related to the Berkshire Buckners. Leonard Buckner of London named a Jane Allen as a cousin in his will (1654). If this William is any of the Buckners I have otherwise documented, he could be the son of William and Dorothy Buckner of Botley in Cumnor, Berks. (d. 1558 and 1586 respectively), though I now think that was more likely to be William Buckner of Chawley (d. 1617). Another candidate is William, the son of Richard Buckner of Cumnor (d. 1548), though I would be surprised if Richard's son survived until 1609, so it could be a grandson of Richard's.

By 1607, William of Abbots Langley seems to have only had one child surviving (Alice), though there were probably others who died young, and he was old enough that providing for his grandchildren seems to have been the priority. It's unclear to me why this will ended up in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury though.

There is another possible clue, which is that one of the daughters of William and Dorothy Buckner of Botley married a Day (perhaps Elizabeth m. Ronald Day, but this is not entirely certain), and a William Day son of Richard Day of Abbots Langley appears in an Oxford epitaph, having died in 1665 at the age of 61.(See Wood's Survey of the Antiquities of Oxford, p. 174) Thus, this Richard Day could quite likely have been born in the mid-late 1500s, and given the Buckners' connections to Oxford, it seems an interesting coincidence that this Richard Day lived in the same place as William Buckner (perhaps nephew and uncle?).

William's widow Elinor seems to have remarried to John Parkins in Abbots Langley on 18 Jan 1608 by banns (as Ellenor Buckner).

Baptisms of Isaac and Alice Rolf's children can be found in the Abbots Langley parish registers:

I've tried to preserve the line arrangement so anyone who wants can compare this to the original image. I don't claim perfection, and there are some things that can be interpreted different ways. The notation {ER} and such indicates a superscript abbreviation. These are common in period documents, though sometimes they can be a little idiosyncratic.
