Buckmaster was born in Slapton, Buckinghamshire, and died in Teddington, Surrey.

An undated edition of 1876 and a dated edition of 1887 followed. He also wrote the preface to "Cookery classes in national schools' by a Somerset Rector and Assistant Diocesan Inspector of Schools published in London in 1880.
