Bunting Field Papers?
Authored by: Anonymous on 10:38PM GMT - Tuesday, 25 January 2005

I have no knowledge of the Lee Papers but have various pieces of information on the Buntings of Ashover dating back to John Bunting of Edilstowe Asschoure (Ashover) who married Maud. He was living in 1285. Thomas Bunting married Mary de Wynnefield, hence the connection with the de Wynfield family (various spellings). There is supposed to be a deed c. 1285 in which Ralph de Wynfeld attests deeds from 1266 to 1289 - he and his wife Margery on the one part and John Buntyng adn Maud his wife and son Thomas on the other part... grant to Jno, Maud and Thomas .... for a term of one year and afterwards for the term of their lives and the life of the longest liver of them one messuage three houses three oxgangs and a half of land and six acres of meadow with appts. Lying in different places in the Fee of Edilstowe. (In the parish of Ashover.

It appears that the original name for Buntingfield was Devilswood

In 1428 Ralph Williamson by deed poll granted and confirmd to Henry Buntyng one messuage and croft .... in Develleswode in the Fee of Esschover.

It appears that the area of land described as duelleswode, Delwode, Devilswood... formed the freehold of Buntingfield and had an extant of more than 100 acres.

However as I live in New Zealand and only come home occasionally I have not had the opportunity to locate these documents for myself. I have an extract from various documents mentioning Buntingfield. I did not do the original research but am happy to share it with you if you acknowledge the source, not me but another Bunting
