Our Society Journal, Gone a-Hunting, is now all loaded onto the website. The family trees in the centre pages of The Journal have not been loaded as they are unsuitable for viewing on-line.

Access to most Journal Articles is available to Bunting Society Members only.

Articles are prefixed with the Issue number of the Journal the article is from.


Status of Web Site

There are 92 Family Trees on the web site and over 22,300 individuals appear on these trees. 

If you are a paid up Society member and you cannot see yourself or close relations in your family tree let me know where you fit in and I will configure your log in to enable you to see details of yourself and close relatives. Without this set up you may find the family trees difficult to use.

 Thanks to television programmes such as 'Who do you think you are?', family history research has become an ever more popular activity for those interested in their ancestry, especially the geographical origins, trades or professions and lifestyles of their antecedents.

 Avid Gone A-Hunting readers — and hopefully all Bunting Society members come into that category - would have been mystified by the reference, on the EDITORIAL page of the last issue of the journal, to an article purporting to follow in subsequent pages about a William Bunting who, in the mid 19th Century, proved to be an embodiment of the label 'jack of all trades'.

 Many surnames derive from occupations of yesteryear — miller, cooper, saddler and so on. Bunting cannot be readily categorised in that way. Apart from its well-known meanings of a bird or type of flag (or flag material), it can be the participle of the verb 'to bunt', a baseball stroke which has connections with the more common word 'butt'.

This year the Bunting Society's annual gathering is being held at Buckden in Cambridgeshire. It is a new location for the event, further evidence of the conscious effort made in recent years to spread our wings geographically in the choice of venue. During the society's early years, the location for the gathering remained unchanged, at Alpheton in Suffolk. That is until the special 10th anniversary gathering, which was held at Writtle College near Chelmsford in Essex.

43- Baby Bunting

The first time we attended a Bunting Society gathering with our daughter Hannah-marie she was only one year old (I maintain she was a baby Bunting.... although her surname is Billson). She was well behaved and we all had an enjoyable time.
