Line of Descent

Here is a Bunting Line of Descent chart (to Charlotte Andrews Bunting), starting in the 1600s, down to the late 20th century. It was compiled by Martha Bunting, circa 1935. The two versions below have been updated, edited, and carefully cross-checked with other sources. A few minor errors were corrected.

If you’re a descendant of Charlotte Bunting and Sheldon Green, you can now trace your ancestors all the way back to 17th-century England. (Simply adjust the numbers according to your generation.)

Descent, in the Bunting Line, to Charlotte Andrews Bunting:

  1. 9.)  Anthony Bunting (d. 1700) — married 1641 — Ellen Barker (d. 1700)
  2. 8.)  William Bunting (1645-1719) — married 1683 — Mary Stevenson (d. 1702)
  3. 7.)  Samuel Bunting (1692-1758) (to America 1722) — married 1727 — Sarah Fearne (1703-1779)
  4. 6.)  Josiah Bunting (1734-1813) — married 1760 — Sarah Hunt (1739-1791)
  5. 5.)  Samuel Bunting (1766-1836) — married 1794 — Mary Buzby (1772-1823)
  6. 4.)  Jabez Bunting (1800-1863) — married 1827 — Keziah Reeves Ridgway (1808-1891)
  7. 3.)  Samuel Bunting (1828-1878) — married 1850 — Susanna Lloyd Andrews (1831-1896)
  8. 2.)  Charles Bunting (1863-1933) — married 1888 — Helen Cyrus Pyle (1863-1948)
  9. 1.)  Charlotte Andrews Bunting (1898-1982) — married 1921 — Sheldon R. Green (1898-1959)
  10. 0.)  Children of Charlotte and Sheldon:  Patricia, Susan, Sarah (Sally), Sheldon, and Norman.

A matrilineal variation is possible for lines 5 and 4, because Samuel Bunting and Susanna Lloyd Andrews were second cousins. They shared a set of great-grandparents: Josiah Bunting and Sarah Hunt (line 6). In other words, lines 5 and 4 show two generations of the Andrews family, followed by Susanna Lloyd (Andrews) Bunting on line 3.
