My daughter (Charlotte Bunting Floyd) has a friend who vacationed in Durham, England, and found a postcard with the picture of Basil Bunting, poet. Charlotte found a lot of information on the internet about him. Lived 1900-1985 and recognized as a major poet by the top literary figures of his day. My daughter has ordered one of his books from Amazon.com.Both of us were intrigued, and wondered if Basil Bunting shows up in any family trees of the Bunting Society members. Any comments would be appreciated.My family tree shows a Samuel Bunting, who lived in Matlock, Derbyshire, England, and moved to Crosswicks,NJ,USA in 1678.
