I'm trying to find information on Joseph Bunting of Bonsall, who married Ruth Smedley in 1768. I have the names of their children (Dorothy 1779, Job 1780, Mary 1770, George 1772, Henry 1776, Hannah 1778), but am struggling to find records of Joseph's birth date and parents (so I can't actually get any further back at the moment).
We think he was born in around 1744, but the CD of Parish records I have states that there is a gap in the records 1743-1750, so I'm not able to confirm or deny this. I'm hoping someone may be able to help with information, or confirm that the records are missing.
