Basil Bunting

Hello,

I've been trying to find the ancestors of the famous British poet, Basil Bunting (1900-1985). It was mentioned on this website that he is related to the Buntings of "Buntingfield," near Matlock, Derbyshire.

These are my ancestors, too. Here is that data (my grandmother is Charlotte Bunting, on the bottom line):

https://buntingtree.com/buntings/genealogy/bunting-line-of-descent/

I've tried using Ancestry.com to research Basil Bunting's ancestors, but without much luck. (Got back to his great-grandparents okay, and then it fizzled out.)

If you know the details of Basil Bunting's ancestry - basically just his connection to Buntingfield (Anthony Bunting & Ellen Barker) - please let me know. I would be most grateful for any help.

Thanks,

Ross

Mary Knowles

Does anyone have any further information regarding the two Mary Knowles' in the Matlock 1 tree?  In 1845, Mary Knowles from Staffordshire bacame the 2nd wife of Adam Bunting, but it seems that his Grandfather also married a lady of the same name.  This is such a strange coincidence and I would like to find out more about the first Mary Knowles if anyone could help me please.

George 'Bunting' Stanley

 I am trying to trace a George Stanley who married in 1924 in Nuneaton aged 24. He was known as George 'Bunting' Stanley. I wondered if anyone in the society could shed any light on him. It is believed that he had family connections in Towcester in Northants. An Eli Bunting lived in Towcester with his family I have discovered but can find no family links. To make matters more complicated George is believed to be of a Romany gypsy family background.  Any assistance would be much appreciated.  Julian

Looking for family

Hi, I am trying to find a Roger Bunting to get in contact with members of my father's family.  My father, Stanley WRAGG, was born near Loughton, Essex, he had two brothers, Edward and Dennis, and a sister Elsie.

Elsie married a Robert Bunting who, I believe, was in  the merchant navy.  They lived in Chatham, Kent.  Both are now decesaed.  They had two children, Roger and Linda.  Linda may be married and I have no idea what her married name might be.

There is a chance that I can find some trace of Roger Bunting who would have been born a little before me, probably around 1950, in or near Chatham.

I would appreciate any information that your society and members could provide.

Thank you in anticipation

Gordon Wragg

Adam Bunting born 1811

is there any reason why Adam's 2nd wife and family are not included in the family tree on Matlock 1?  i have been trying to check this out but cannot find any trace of them on your site.  you have quoted his details as found on the 1851/61/71 census and his other children and wife (Mary Knowles b1823, m1845) are clearly there.  There are 10 further children and a stepchild.

Martha Kennell nee Bunting, c1803-1853

Can anyone help me trace Martha's ancestry, please?  She was born at Watford NTH (adjacent to Long Buckby, a known Bunting "hub") about 1803 according to the 1851 census, and marrried my great-great-grandfather James Kennell (aka Kinning, Kenning) at Piddington NTH on 24.10.1825.  She had been baptised as an adult at Piddington on 22.2.1825, parents Joseph (labourer) and Mary Bunting of Hackleton (then part of Piddington parish).  Although James' abode was given as Daventry NTH, he was a native of Long Buckby and the couple were back there by 1828, some of their children being baptised at the parish church and others at the Independent church.  James died of consumption in 1845, and the 1851 Long Buckby census states Martha to be a pauper working as a shoe-binder.  After James' death, she appears to have joined the Baptist church in Long Buckby.  She died of enteritis aged 50 on 15.12.1853.
