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.
