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.
I really need some help sorting the information I have obtained out as what I believe happened is like a soap opera of sorts. Any information that agrees or disagrees with my research would be greatly appreciated.
Looking for any info on my Bunting ancestors, or present day relatives.I know that my grandfather' name was Harry Mulford Bunting and I believe that he was named after his father, who was a Doctor in and around Philadelphia, Pa
My name is Ronald Bunting ,and although I live in Australia I was born in New Zealand.I am interested to hear if anyone has any information regarding my greatgrandfather Father Jabez Bunting who immigrated to New Zealand at the end of the 19th Century.
