My thanks to John Bailey of Sheffield for this snippet. (I met John at the Federation Conference at the end of August which we each thoroughly enjoyed from the point of view of the accomodation at Loughborough University, the excellent food and unexpectedly good talks belying their subject titles.)

In the 1851 census reference HO107/2335, folio496b (District 12, page 6, schedule 24) and living at Rivelin Mill is:

William Bunting, Head, aged 29, a Journeyman Miller,born County Durham, place also Durham. He is married to :Charlotte aged 37 born Derbyshire, Dronfield -there are no children.

If this William is yours then make sure the Society has the information about his ancestors and descendants.
