Buntingfields Farm, UK

 

I am contacting  the Society to advise you, and hopefully all of your family members, of the forthcoming sale of Buntingfields Farm, Uppertown, Ashover, near Chesterfield , Derbyshire, UK which we understand is the ancient home of the Buntings dating back to 1638. Members of the family are understood to have emigrated to the US in 1677. The farm also inlcudes an old Quaker burial ground. The sales particulars are available on our web site

Malcom Knowles

Whilst the obituary is not a normal item of information we normally print on the web page, Laverne Bunting Hayes , an American Member, rightly has drawn our attention to the matter Malcom dealt with on behalf of our Society, which only she knew about.
