Re: Finding Bruntons

In Reply to: Finding Bruntons by Leona Brunton of 260

The information I have on William Brunton (1817-1881) I obtained from David Cockburn Brunton, from to earlier compilations. One of these was by John Dickinson Brunton (1821-1907), and the second by Arthur D. Brunton in 1847.

William Brunton married Jane Bromley. They had 6 children: William, born in 1842, Maria, born in 1844 and died in 1889, Charles Robert, Fredrick, Louisa and Margaret A. Regrettably that is all I know about William himself. I have more information on his father, mother, siblings and his ancestry back to a Robert Brunton (1676-1708) of Dalkeith.

William's (1817-1881) father was also named William (1777-1851), and is Mother was Ann Elizabeth Button. This William was an inventor, whose most famous invention was the "mechanical traveler". William (1817-1881) also had 9 brothers and sisters.

My line was traced through one of William's uncles from Dalkeith, Scotland to West Bromwich, Staffordshire, to Hereford, to Deri, Wales and then to the United States (Pittsburgh) in the late 1890's.

Please feel free to e-mail me for additional information.
