William Henry Bunting

I am trying to find William Henry Bunting on the 1891 census. He was born in 1870 in Eckington, Chesterfield although other census have shown it as Ridgeway or Carter Hall or Cartrow Lane. In 1881 he was living in Sharlston, Yorkshire with his parents William and Martha. 


 By 1891 the rest of the family had moved to Attercliffe cum Darnall and by 1901 William Henry was living there as well.
The family have a history of being coal miners.

Dear Anonymous,

I would be much happier to write to a person with a name! The Webmaster does allow you to use your own even though you are not a member.

Firstly our Record Keeper is on holiday at the moment so I will answer as best I can. I found it difficult to pinpoint all the Census references you mentioned. Specifically William Henry in 1901. Was your reference to the William Henry married to Polly and with a daughter Emily, RG13/4387page 40, Schedule 224? If it was then the Society has a reference in its "Bunting Trees", usually provided by one of our Members but sadly not associated with the parents William and Martha as recorded in the earlier census data. So for the moment I have discarded that reference but noted that the place of birth, Ridgeway was in the right part of Derbyshire. Do you have a date of death for either William Henry or his father, William and the person who reported each event as that might help me in looking through the Society's Will references? I had hoped that the clue of the Grandson, Walter might help but I couldnt trace him after 1891.

So is the William Bunting, 23, Lodger, Coal Miner, Born DBY Openwood Gate, RG 12 2653, folio 137 a possibility even though it is in Nottinghamshire?

Thank you for looking.

We are indeed looking for William Henry married to Polly. When we first researched him we thought that he was born in Woolley Moor/ Stretton and that his parents were William and Sarah. This information may have been submitted to the Society.

However we now have a birth certificate for a William Henry Bunting born on 14 February 1870 in Eckington, Chesterfield. His parents are William and Martha (nee Cutts). Could this be the William Henry we are looking for? The 1911 census shows him as being born in Eckington. It is believed he died around 1945.

Hello Caroline,

I wish our Record Keeper had noted what the source was for the marriage of William Henry and Polly Johnson. It is so important to always give that detail. The birth certificate seems to tie in with the Census entries for his parents being William and Martha. I think I saw that there was a Cutts family living close by in the 1871 Census!  Is it your line that connects with William Henry and Polly? Please will you at some time let the Society have that part of your tree? A photocopy of the birth certificate would always be welcome too.

I have just been looking at my Geographia, A1 Street Plan of Sheffield and found the Carterhall Lane, Ridgeway connection quite easily. It was very close to a route I took regularly in and out of Sheffield, via Gleadless. Carterlow must have been a corruption by the enumerator unless there has been a name change of a road.

If you are needing to come forward in time I found that the Sheffield Local Studies Library had an excellent set of Burgess Rolls (Electoral registers) as well as a good range of the Trade/Postal Directories.
