I am researching my husbands Family Tree, if I am correct this Bunting Family came from Belper in Derbyshire then into Hanley Staffordshire and from there to Barnsley in South Yorkshire.I have looked at the Bunting Queries and the Bunting Trees and can't see any of the names that are in my husbands tree I haven't had much help but have followed the census and bought certificates so I'm hoping I haven't gone wrong and would appreciate some comments. I won't go into too much detail but will put the main names and info I have.
My research has told me that my grandparents Joseph Bunting and Mary Hughes were 22 and 19 at the 1891 census and I found out they married in 1897 from the Church of Latter Day Saints genealogy website but I have tried in vain to find them on the 1901 census. Could this be because they were living in lodgings? If so how do I find them in this situation.
I have been fortunate enough to find the misfortunes and happy ending to my great aunt, Mary Lucy Bunting, she left Ashen to find her future in London, she survived her hardship & returned to Ashen to be married in the village church to her Polceman husband, Arthur Tassell, 6th Feb. 1901.
My grandfather JOSEPH BUNTING married Mary Hughes. I never knew him because he died when my father Thomas was a child. My father came from Stoke on Trent in Staffordshire. My father was born on 6th March 1905 and I know of two of his siblings, Frederick and Mary. I would like to contact my cousins who may know more about my grandfather than I do.
