Puckering was apparently the only surviving son of his father, Sir Henry Puckering, 3rd Baronet, of The Priory in Warwick. His father had been born Henry Newton, but changed the family's name to Puckering some time after 1636, when he inherited the estates of his uncle Sir Thomas Puckering, 1st Baronet. (The title came not from the uncle, but from his father Sir William Newton, 2nd Baronet).
At the general election of 1661 he was elected in his father’s interest to the first Cavalier Parliament as a Member of Parliament for the borough of Warwick. He appears to have been a fairly active member, but died during the recess before the new session of Parliament began in March 1664.
