You pose a problem that basically the Society cannot answer as you ask about the Searles and Elizabeth Nash. Unless the Society has a member who is a direct descendant line from a Bunton to or through either of those names then they are not likely to be found in our database other than as a marriage partner. Hence Elizabeth Nash is there and the Quarter of the marriage year, June 1901, which we acquired by reading all the Bunting and variant entries at St Catherine's when the records were held there.
Did you look for Walter and Elizabeth in the 1881 Census?
Having been negative in my reply above I then wanted to be positive in an attempt to help you.
I wanted to look for Walter David and Elizabeth Nash and whilst the former appeared to be living in Kent with his parents there seemed to be too many Elizabeth Nash names to be certain which was the correct one. Do you have the christian names of the Searles as I assume from your comments that she may have been brought up by them. But from what age? Do you know where and when they lived there?
How did you know that Walter and Elizabeth were married in 1901? Have you got the certificate? What is written on it?
I suppose this is what the family history hobby is all about - detective work! I need a bit more help from you! Michael
Thanks for trying.
