Heritage Plaque for John Bunting's House in Hunstanton

A plaque has been placed on the house at 1 and 2 Hill Street, Hunstanton proclaiming that this was John Bunting's House.
John Bunting was an Estate Bailiff for the L'Estrange family at the time Hunstanton was formed as a sea side town. He married Sarah on 22 May 1858 and celebrated his golden wedding at his house in Hill Street with his ten children.

The plaque is one of 25 plaques forming the new heritage plaque walk in Hunstantonwhich was launched last year and was funded by The Heritage lottery Fund, the Countryside Agency and the Nationwide Building Society.

I will endeavour in due course to copy and put on the website a photograph of John and and Sarah Bunting's Golden Wedding taken outside his house in Hill Street and copies of some pages from John Bunting's ledgers which I have in my possession and which show details of payments made to estate workers.

Further details of the plaque and the part John Bunting played in the early days of the formation of Hunstanton John Bunting can be found at The Hunstanton Civic Society Website.
John and Sarah Bunting are my Great grand parents.

Heritage Plaque for John Bunting's House in Hunstanton

For some reason the link in the main story to the website containing details of the opening of the plaque walk and what John Bunting did in the nineteenth century when Hunstanton was founded as a sea side town in North Norfolk is not working if you click on it. I have therefore repeated the link below.

Try clicking on the link below but if this does not work please copy and paste the whole link from "http//" to "=uk2" into your browser (e.g.internet explorer) and that will definitely work. Happy reading!

Please see Gallery Folder NFK Gayton Thorpe for photographs of John Bunting outside his house in Hunstanton with his wife and 10 children on the occassion of his Golden Wedding. The house is of course Tower House and is the one which is part of the heritage walk and has a heritage plaque on the outside wall saying John Bunting lived here. Please see the same folder for copies of two of his ledger pages written by him whilst bailiff.
