Australian Reunion

A reunion of Bunker descendants is planned to coincide with the 200th year celebrations of Bunker’s Cottage at the Collingwood Estate in Australia.

The aim of this a daylong event is to have the largest gathering of Bunker descendants in the Southern Hemisphere, and a photographic record taken. And of course, to met up with other descendants and to have fun!

How to get involved:


We are looking to collect copies of family histories and photographs, documents such as birth and death certificates, family tree charts, oral histories, interesting anecdotes, and photographs of artifacts relating to the Bunker descendants. In particular, we are chasing information from the Booth, Cartwright, Clarke, Larkin and Tomlinson family connections. All information received will be kept in confidence should you desire it.
If you can spare some time to help collate information, we would love to have you assist.

Remember this is your day and we won?t be around to celebrate the 300-year anniversary in 2110.

On the day
Helpers are required to help set up displays in the morning and to man three family booths (Mary
Ann, Charlotte and Isabella family lines). Again, all offers of help are greatly appreciated.
