Buckland Monachorum is a village and civil parish in the West Devon district of Devon, England, situated on the River Tavy, about 10 miles north of Plymouth.In 2006 the neighbourhood had an estimated 1,511 residents and 654 dwellings. The electoral ward of the same name gave a population of 3,380 at the 2011 census.Domesday Book (1086) records Buckland Monachorum (Bocheland) as having land for 15 ploughs, a salt pan and a fishery rendering 10s. The estate was owned by William de Poilley, probably a Norman knight, although he is not listed in the rolls of the Battle of Hastings. William de Poilley held 17 estates in southern Devon as a tenant-in-chief of William the Conqueror, making him a person of local, if not regional, significance.Near to Buckland Monachorum is Buckland Abbey, home of Sir Francis Drake during the Elizabethan era. The village is the site of St. Andrew's, a 12th-century church with a Saxon baptismal font and the tombs of the Drake family and Lord Heathfield, the defender of Gibraltar, many historic buildings, and a complex of interesting gardens, known as "The Garden House". The Gift House, a seventeenth-century Almshouse, was built by a descendant of Sir Francis Drake.
