John Bunting Robinson of Nottingham

I am trying to find information on John Bunting Robinson who married Jane Spooner Oct 03 1816 at St Nicholas, Nottingham. I can't find a baptism for him any where, and he seems to have disappeared sometime after the birth of their daughter Ann in 1817. He was a waggoner by profession and they lived at Hounds Gate, St Nicholas at this time.

The marriage information I have for their marriage is as follows:

Nottingham St Nicholas, MF 39, Page 77, Entry No 229
John Bunting Robinson of this Parish and Jane Spooner of this Parish were married in this church by Banns this third Day of October in the Year One thousand eight hundred and sixteen By me Charles Wylde  Rector.
This Marriage was solemnized between us (both signed).
In the presence of John Spooner and Hannah Bramley

If anyone recognizes my John I would love to hear from you,

Lyn in NSW Australia

Dear Lyn,

I am forced to be negative in reply.

No members, nor correspondents, other than yourself, has ever mentioned John Bunting Robinson. Consequently we do not have a record of him.

As an one name study group we would like to know how he acquired his middle name. Presumably from a male Robinson marrying a Bunting but it could be from an earlier generation liason. So, leave your enquiry on the site in case one of our Nottinghamshire members can do a further study than you have achieved on the St Nicholas registers. Did the banns register give any clues to him? Did you find the information on a Mormon film? If so let me have the film acquisition detail.

On  Jan. 27th I am attending a fair in Bracknell UK. If he is there and I have spare time (as an Exhibitor!), I will ask my NTT (Nottinghamshire) colleague if he has any helpful transcripts etc.

I should have stated earlier, that as a transcriber, John's middle name could be easily overlooked. Especially if it was just listed as just "B." If, when we were doing the UK, post 1837, BMDs we wouldn't have found him as we wouldn't have looked at the Robinson surname anyway.

Have a Happy New Year and keep on with your FH searching.

Dear Lyn,

The 27th January has passed by and my Nottinghamshire colleague did not have a written transcript but he made me an offer of the Nottinghamshire FHS, Baptism and Marriage, transcript CDs that I could not refuse! The data will always come in useful for the Bunting Society! So I suppose that all I have done is covered the same ground that you did and up popped John Bunting Robinson's marriage. Nothing in the way of additional notes nor anything from the Baptisms. I had drawn a blank.

Later on in conversation with one of my own customers, who turned out to be a resident of Nottingham, she volunteered to try and help by exploring the marriage register for any extra information also to find out if there were any Bishops Transcripts at the County Archives or Local Studies Library. So if you would like to e-mail me directly I will put you in touch with her.
