Master of Buckland was a hereditary title in the Shire.

[edit] History

The first Master was Thain Gorhendad Oldbuck, after he left the Shire and moved to Buckland in S.R. 740.[1] The holder of the title was accepted as the leader of Buckland, and several farms in the Marish as well.[2] After the War of the Ring, Elessar made the Master of Buckland one of the Mayor Counsellors of the North-Kingdom.[3]
