My thanks to Mike Spencer who reported the incidence of a Bakewell, Derbyshire, UK, Bunting.

Mike and another helper, Ken Mycock each put information on the Derbyshire Mailing List which often comes in useful for our Members.

In this instance the reference is from Workhouse records which may take many forms, Admission Registers, Punishment Books and below notes from the Minute Book of the Board of Guardians. (On a visit to the Matlock Record Office in September 2005 I searched the Admission Book for the Belper Union for the death of William Bunting, born in Hazlewood, DBY, circa 1808, over a 10 year period from 1861 - 1871 as his wife had died there in 1907. I was unlucky this time.)

BAKEWELL UNION Board of Guardians. 1 Oct - 8 Oct 1838 Hartington MQ. (MQ = Middle Quarter)

Mary BUNTING 61, single, weak intellect, lives in a house belonging parish.

Is anyone able to place Mary in a family tree?
