Bunting (Worthen)
« on: Wednesday 06 April 05 17:50 BST (UK) »
This morning I received birth certificates confirming the maiden names of both of my Bunting GG Grandparents, but I can find no trace of them either at Ancestry or the LDS site (or on the pay-per-view BMD site I use). If anyone is researching Shropshire (Worthen) Buntings, can you shed any light?

I know that Frederick Bunting married Emily Bunting (they were cousins) in 1885. I now know that Emily's parents were William Bunting and Elizabeth Bunting (so I assume that William and Elizabeth were also related).

Frederick's father, James Bunting (the family name is given as Bunton on the 1871 census), married an Ann Jones, born c.1835, although on one census her birthplace is given as Llanrihadir, and in another it's Worthen. I have found all these people on the 1871-1901 censuses (the only ones to which I currently have access) but I can't understand why I can't seem to find any trace of their birth or marriage records!

I had a look at the 1861 Montgomeryshire census as parts of Worthen appear on there, and found the following:

A Margaret Buntin (think it should be Bunting) age 18 is a house servant for a Grocer in Worthen.  She was born in Worthen.

Sampson Bunting age 21 a Waggoner, but listed as servant, in Chirbury.  He was born in Worthen.


From the 1851 Montgomeryshire census:

Another Servant, Margaret Bunting age 16, Housemaid at Mellington Hall, Churchstoke.  She was born in Worthen.
