Bunting Family Bible

Following the recent death of my parents, I discovered in their books an old, but undated, King James bible. On a previously blank page at the back, however, is a list of Buntings and their dates of birth.

It would appear that the list was created at once, perhaps to aid the bible's owner in remembering the birthday's of each of his fifteen or so brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, etc! The birth dates range from that of Susan Bunting (b.3 August,1826) to Bertie Elmer (b. 21 March, 1885).


I would like to return this bible to one of the descendants of the original owner?

Dear Ross,
I am sure I have written before, perhaps as a comment to your original query.
Have you said what country the bible was found in?
I looked at our birth records and didn't find any names with linking places. A christian name like Wellington should have jumped out of the page at me. I just can't imagine that we missed transcribing those names at St Catherine's when we did them. Even though they would have been in the "hand written" books.
I did wonder if they referred to a family which had emigrated.
Michael.
