I am requesting assistance in locating any documentation/information on the following individuals. If you have a copy of "Anthony Bunting and Ellen Barker of Matlock, England: descendants of sons in America. William Bunting, John Bunting, Samuel Bunting, Job Bunting" by Elizabeth Potts Koleda the information may be there. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated and I will be more than happy to pay any reasonable fees.
Following the recent death of my parents, I discovered in their books an old, but undated, King James bible. On a previously blank page at the back, however, is a list of Buntings and their dates of birth.
My ancestors include John Bunton/Bunting born c 1785 who married Sarah and they had sevral children born in Old Buckenham. These include my great great great grandmother, Anna Maria Bunting (known as Maria) born at Old Buckenham in 1814, who married Stephen Brothers.
We have just discovered, via a birth certificate, that Neil's branch of Buntings came from Co Down in Ireland. The birth of the first New Zealand born child ( John Stewart Wellington Bunting) in February 1880, shows his father to be James Bunting aged 24 born in Ireland and his mother Dorothea Stewart Bunting formerly Murray, also aged 24. and born in Ireland. These two were married in May 1879 at Waringstown, Co. Down.
