The Bunner Family prior to 1846

Postby mjcosj » Wed Dec 28, 2016 4:03 pm

Please can anyone suggest a source of research for John Bunner born c1725 (I don't know where) He first comes to light in Worthen, in the Shropshire Parish Records of 1846 with the Christening of his daughter Esther Bunner. The family appear to be just starting out, Mom and dad are John Bunner and Jane.
Their children are baptised in the local Parish Church and I can follow the family from then on when their name changes to Bonner.
There are no records of any Bunners in Worthen prior to 1846. There are Bunners in nearby Montgomery but I have not been able to find John there.
I am unable to find any marriage record of John and Jane neither can can I find a birth for John Bunner.
Many Thanks
Happy 2017

Can you please check the dates in your post please? I suspect that you have the wrong century somewhere...

Guessing that you mean the 1700s, what about the Bynner spelling? Looking for John B*nner in FMP, there's a Meifod baptism in Montgomeryshire in 1719 and 1728, also at Llanwddyn (a bit further away) in 1720.

As Adrian says, your post is a bit confusing re dates, but for what it's worth, there's a baptism for an Esther Banner, 2nd May 1756 in Worthen, parents John and Jane.

My Apologies for the date mix up, I'm getting old!
Thank you all for your help. Adrian for your help reminded me of the use of Welsh spelling where a "Y" can make the sound of "Uh"; hence 'Bunner' later on in the Christening of Esther his daughter
