1851 Stray, Durham to Sheffield.

My thanks to John Bailey of Sheffield for this snippet. (I met John at the Federation Conference at the end of August which we each thoroughly enjoyed from the point of view of the accomodation at Loughborough University, the excellent food and unexpectedly good talks belying their subject titles.)

A shy lot

Where is everybody? I don't seem to be getting very far with the Bunting family. I did find a marriage between Mahala Evans and Thomas Bunting 29 December 1841 Doveridge, Derby. Mahala's parents were John and Ann Evans. Mahala was baptised 20 February 1808 in Doveridge.

A A Bunting as Iago

Alan Merryweather has a watercolour picture of a man, bearing the legend 'A. A. Bunting as Iago'. The distinctive Art Deco style of the lettering seems to date it from the 1920s and 1930s.

Bunting Field Papers?

I received a message from David Bunton in AR. He and I have both visited Bunting Field in Darbyshire. He was told that someone in the Lee family had old papers on the land. Does anyone know anything re this? He said it might fill in some gaps in our history.

Buntings in Rutland

I am interested in Buntings in Teigh, Rutland around 1750-1850. I have an unmarried mother in my tree - Elizabeth SPURR (1800-1872) who had at least 3 children, the second having the name John Bunting SPURR. I suspect that John BUNTING from Teigh 1777-1834 may have been the father, but I am also aware of other BUNTINGs in Teigh around this time and also that some of the BUNTINGs had "some reputation". Can anyone help me shed more light on thes TEIGH BUNTINGs? The 3 fatherless children involved are:

Buntings in Birmingham and Bradford

My Great Grandmother was Frances Williams Bunting, she was one of eleven children of William Bunting of Spratton, Northants and Elizabeth Lantsbery. Her husband died in 1893 aged 65 but she lived on for another 41 years, in Creaton Northamptonshire, and she appears to have been supported in this time by her eldest brother and her youngest sisters' husband. The following are the details I have of these siblings but details of how they financially supported my Great Grandmother will follow in a future story. Any more details especially on the Bradford Buntings would be very gratefully received.
