Served at Trafalgar

Has anybody researched into Marine Private William Bunting who is listed in the National Archives as having served onboard HMS Royal Sovereign at Trafalgar.


His paybook No was ML57 on 1st March 1805. Would be interested to know which branch of the family he came from. Nat Archives cat no ADM 36/15755.

I am also trying to find information about  Sir Christopher Bunting who, as the story goes was a Royalist senior officer during the English civil war and helped to defend Wingfield Manor (Derbyshire) against the roundheads. Any information on either query would be appreciated.

Kevin is he listed in the Marines "Description Book" at the National Archives. For Marines I have researched it gives the County of birth. Do you know what his age was from the Muster or Paybook for the Royal Sovereign?
