    1549 · Book of Common Prayer

    Age 21

    Book of Common Prayer, a product of the English Reformation, was published in 1549 for assistance in the administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the church according to the use of the Church of England. The book outlined morning, evening, and communion prayers and orders for baptism and marriage, thus making England a truly Protestant state.

    Age 30

    The Act of Uniformity was passed by the Parliament of England and required all people to go to church once a week. The consequence of not attending church was a fine of 12 pence, which was a considerable amount for a poor person.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of the many places so named, most of which are from Old English bucc ‘buck, male deer’ or bucca ‘he-goat’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’. Places called Buckley and Buckleigh, in Devon, are named with Old English boga ‘bow’ + clif ‘cliff’.

    English: in Somerset perhaps alternatively, a variant of the now extinct Bugley, a habitational name from Bugley in Dorset or Wiltshire, named from the Old English female personal name Bucge + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.

    Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Buachalla ‘descendant of Buachaill’, a byname meaning ‘cowherd, servant’.
