From various sources several writers have gleaned a great mass of information relative to the Bucks of England, the use of which, it is to be regretted, space will not admit. Of the kindred or cognate branches, those items only being embraced which tend to establish a general line of posterity in a common progenitor down through the centuries. For as it is almost impossible to trace a direct line of the lineal descendants in many instances, even in our own country, from meagre and con?icting records or intervals of no record at all, how much more difficult must it be in the mother country, where all is conjecture and doubt in so great a measure. We are therefore compelled to abandon an object, the attainment of which the tracing of the lateral branches, would also have been of great interest to both the agnates and cognates of the collateral line of the enquiring members of the family outside the common progenitor.
Genealogists have been to great expense in travel and research and experienced great difficulty in obtaining lineages from defective sources and unwilling informants particularly in England, supposedly fearing its effect in inheritance claims or otherwise upon estates. Also from defaced tombstones, obliterated family, town and court records, disfigured manuscripts and lea?ess volumes, the destruction of time, fire and water and in the earlier periods of our own country from little or no family records being kept, or from the frequent incursions of the Indians, or the hostile invasion of armies and hasty removals in the wilderness, so it is not strange that there should be con?icting narra tions, traditions, accounts, dates and names of which it is hard to reconcile and probably never will be made to appear perfectly plain and clear. So each' narrator or historian has a version of his own, but after following up a certain line or tracing down a certain Source, on the whole nevertheless there is found mostly mutual agreement and the antiquarians of both Europe and America generally coincide inasmuch from whose hearthfires the children scatter and wander, founding homes throughout the whole wide world.
