I've been trying to find the ancestors of the famous British poet, Basil Bunting (1900-1985). It was mentioned on this website that he is related to the Buntings of "Buntingfield," near Matlock, Derbyshire.

These are my ancestors, too. Here is that data (my grandmother is Charlotte Bunting, on the bottom line):

I've tried using to research Basil Bunting's ancestors, but without much luck. (Got back to his great-grandparents okay, and then it fizzled out.)

If you know the details of Basil Bunting's ancestry - basically just his connection to Buntingfield (Anthony Bunting & Ellen Barker) - please let me know. I would be most grateful for any help.
