I suspect that the postage and packing  would be substantial,   as the weight  would be considerable.

Any indication of what area that family is from?

There is only one rootschatter with that surname on the SIT, and they haven't been online since 2014. Their Gundrys are from Cornwall.

Contact them in case it relates to their family - they may wish to purchase it.

No, but anybody interested enough could run the names through FreeBMD to see where it's likely to be.  It doesn't seem that common a name to me.... a few matches might nail it

I have no Gundrys in my tree, but out of curiosity I ran the names through FreeBMD.

The first 3 names, James, Sarah and Joseph are from Cornwall.  Thereafter all others are from Co. Durham (Lanchester/Gateshead).

Hope someone who is related to this family finds the bible.
Robbins - Wolverhampton.
Spooner - Monmouthshire & Wolverhampton.
Warner & Loundes - Dudley/West Bromwich.
Dod(g)son - Heysham/Liverpool/Wolverhampton

In that case Jool, the bible might be of interest to the rootschat member. I will send them a PM. :)

A bit of coincidence: I read this thread and later turned to the story of Edward De Lacy Evans in the Daily Mail. Out of curiosity I Googled him  and Wikipedia has a fuller story.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_De_Lacy_Evans

While in the hospital at Bendigo Evans shared a room with a warder named GUNDRY. A possible branch of the family in Australia then? And an interesting family story if so!
