Buntings of Wanganui, NEW ZEALAND
Authored by: Tony Bunting on 07:59PM GMT - Thursday, 28 January 2010

There were 4 Bunting's on the Wild Duck when Captain Bishop sailed from Plymouth on 20th August 1866 arriving in Wellington on 8 December that year. They were Edward Bunting, Margaret Bunting,  Maria Bunting and Letitia Bunting. The Wellington Independent of 11 December 1866 contains the full passenger list.

Thank you Tony for that information.  This is the family I am following. These Buntings are my grandfathers (much older) siblings.
