My Great Grandfather Arthur Bunting. Born 1876. Died 1964. Marred to Emma Silman. Had 7 children. George. (My Grandad) Tom. Frank. Bill. Jim. Edie. Ethel. Lived at 18 School Lane. Cirencester. Arthur was Forman at Cirencester Railway Yard. In WW1 he joined Bettalion 8 of the Glosters. (Service number 23449) as a private. They were sent to the Somme. The battalion were right in the thick of the battle. Arthur was In charge of the donkeys. He never spoke about what he saw out there.
Stuart W Bunting of Debden (now living in Glensford) had just published his first book titled 'principles of sustainable aquaculture '. He is a leading researcher In this field and his family are very proud of him.
I was delighted to find this site on the web. I would love to find out more about our family history. I have three brothers and one sister. My grandfather, Albert E. Bunting, lived in Canada as a young person, and then in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan where he became wealthy from the tobacco industry. He had three children, Arthur, Elwood and Albert Lowell, my father, born in 1910, I believe.
Samuel and wife Mary Ann Barber sailed to Rockhampton , Queensland in the Alexandrina as free passengers. Sadly, Samuel died childless (as far as I can ascertain) in 1879, and Mary Ann remarried in the same year to one George Wareham, who had survived an horrendous voyage in the "Suffolk"in 1874 during which many infants died, including one of his own; (nearly 13 % of infants died during the voyage according to research), only to lose his wife in 1878, after the loss of another two of his children. I am nearly sure that another of Samuel snr and Mary Ann Bird's sons , John, travelled out to Queensland and dies there in 1944.
We talked about Bunting Clocks at Long Buckby and also about Milton's Bunting Watch. Please see the information below from the British Museum concerning a Bunting watch. I will contact the Curator about a photograph. This watch is made by William Bunting. It seems to be the correct one. I had thought the maker was John Bunting (the grandfather clock maker) but his dates are wrong for Milton's lifetime.
