In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Buckley like this:
BUCKLEY, a chapelry in Hawarden parish, Flint; 2 miles N by W of Hope r. station, and 4½ E of Mold. It has a post office‡ under Mold. The statistics are returned with the parish. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the rectory of Hawarden. A railway from Buckley to Connah's Quay, 5 miles long, was formed under an act of 1860; and was at first for minerals only, but was authorized in 1866 for passengers also.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Buckley has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Flintshire. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Buckley and units named after it.
