Buntings of Drumlin, Magheralin, Co. Down

My grandfather John Bunting (born 1879 at Drumlin) migrated to Australia around 1904 together with 4 brothers - James, Samuel, Thomas & Joseph. A brother Henry migrated to the USA & the eldest brother Alexander and a sister remained in Northern Ireland in the Banbridge area.

John's father was Henry Bunting who married Isabella McKinley in the Church of Ireland at Magheralin in 1872. All records show Drumlin as their place of residence. The children were all baptised at the Magheralin Church. It was fascinating to view their records at the church in July last year.

There is a link to the Liddell's Mill at Donaghcloney with one of my uncle's working with Charles Liddell in Melbourne Australia where he established a Linen warehouse.

I have a fair amount of information re the family members who came to Australia however I am struggling to lock in any earlier details of the family in Northern Ireland.

Contact from anyone who may have knowledge of these 'Buntings' would be most gratefully received.  Thank you so much in anticipation.

My grandfather was James Bunting and was born in Belfast.  His father was Allan Bunting and mother Jane Pollock, both from Donacloney, near Magheralin. The Buntings are Church of Ireland. Allan, like many others, came to Belfast for work. He was a draper and then a linen lapper. Granda was a hackle setter and then an insurance inspector with Pearl Assurance. At the minute, I don't have any more information on the Donacloney Buntings but intend to go to the Public Records Office in Belfast to find out more.
