I have an index reference for Frances. Her marriage was registered in the June quarter of 1849 at Wisbeach Vol XIV page 217.
My family tree which goes back to John Bunting born c 1809 in Terrington St Clement but I have not made a connection for Frances. The family of Thomas born c 1805 and Phoebe born c1806 were living at Terrington St John in 1841 census. Their children at that time were Charles b 1828, Elizabeth b 1830 Robert b 1832 and Thomas b 1838.
You may be able to assist with the tracking down of a relative of Captain William Bunting MC who was killed in France in 1917. Iam a serving Officer in the British Army, currently working in Washington DC. A US citizen has been in contact because she is now in the posession of a letter written by William Bunting to the parents of a soldier he believed was killed in 1917. So far I have found out that Captain William Bunting was killed in Aug 1917 and received a Military Cross for gallant conduct and that the soldier he was writing about was probably not killed but more likely wounded or taken prisoner. The person that holds the letter would like to return it to William Buntings family. It is very moving and I believe would mean a great deal to them. His name appears on the War memorial in Terrington St John and his parents were Joh nand Sarah Bunting.
If you are able to put me in touch via an e-mail address or maybe give them my contact details I would be most grateful. My e-mail address is email@example.com
