Sherborne, Gloucestershire

During research into my wifes genealogy I found Julia Jane Bunting, her 3xgreat grandmother (B: 1864 - Bibury). Her parents were James Ridgeway Bunting (1833-1908) and Mary Stevens (1832-1888).

They spent their lives living in Sherborne working on the Lodge Park estate, the males as Game Keepers, as did their parents before them.
Julia Jane married Joseph West (who died a 6 years into the marriage) and she remarried, William Bennett in 1891 in Sherborne.


I'd be interested to hear from anyone with connections in this area.

Further to your enquiry. Julia Jane nee Bunting (1864-1952) was the daughter of James Bunting (1832-1908) and granddaughter of William Bunting (1812-1890) who, in turn, was the son of William Bunting (1775-1855). This William was my 3xgreat grandfather through his daughter Anne (1799-1894) who married Henry Townsend. I was brought up close to my maternal Grandmother (Ruth 1865-1959) Anne's granddaughter. I have carried out quite a lot of research into the Sherborne Buntings. A Bunting Society member, Mr George West is a grandson of Julia Jane.
