In the will of an ancestor of mine thousands of pounds were shared between his children, but; his eldest son was left one shilling. This seemed a bit strange to me. I searched the London Gazette for the year the will was made and found his eldest son in debtors prison as a bankrupt. I looked up some Buntings around the same period and found the following interesting records. The London Gazette archive can be searched.
