Bucklesham is derived from the old English meaning Buccel's homestead or village. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book with a population in 1086 of 36 households made up of 32 freeholders and 4 small holders.
The village has a school, a church, a village hall (shared with the neighbouring Foxhall), houses and the pub is named The Shannon after Rear Admiral Philip Broke's ship HMS Shannon (1806). A small cottage – Shell Cottage – near St Mary's church was the old school, and the names of the children can still be found written on the walls. The newer school has 15 students per year group, and about 100 students in all. The village playing field is used by the children and the football team. The field has swings and an obstacle course.
