About meWilliam Buckland (1734-1774), architect. Born in Oxford, England, Buckland apprenticed with his uncle James Buckland in London. William came to Virginia at the age of 21 as an indentured servant to Thomson Mason, brother of George Mason IV. George Mason hired Buckland to complete the interior of his estate, Gunston Hall, which Buckland did from c. 1755 through 1759. Buckland was known for his interior designs, and his other Virginia works include Mount Airy (1761-64), Richmond County Prison (1763) and workhouse (1767), Landon Carter's Sabine Hall and Robert Wormeley Carter's house (1766).
About my libraryBuckland's library is drawn from his estate inventory (PDF), digitized by staff at Gunston Hall. The inventory was taken at Anne Arundel County, MD, on 19 December 1774.
