BFA Publications – 2017 Update

The Bunker Family Association published an extensive array of materials to aid those interested in sharing Bunker genealogical data and to help preserve the Bunker heritage for impending generations.

In 2007, BFA Historian Bette Bunker Richards completed an electronic version on Devonshire Bunkers. The E-book includes information on descendants of James Bunker of Dover, New Hampshire; Benjamin Bunker and Betsey Daniels of New London, New Hampshire; Thomas Bunker and Alice Pertie of Rattery, Devonshire, UK and William Bunker and Ann Forrester of New Castle, Delaware. The book also includes Devon, England Parish Records, maps and nearly 100 pictures. In addition, we added records of military service for Bunkers from all branches of the family. The E-book contains more than 1,300 written pages, plus indexes. (Please note not all Devon descendants are included, only those entered into the BFA data base, to date.)

A recent project is the 2008 completion of an E-book on Bedfordshire Bunkers. This compilation shows the descendants of Roger Bunker, Tingrith, Bedfordshire, England i.e. George Bunker of Charlestown, Massachusetts and George Bunker of Nantucket. Additional Bedfordshire descendants connected through DNA tests include Thomas Bunker and Clarissa Chamberlin; Samuel Bunker (b 1849) and Almira Goodwin; and Joseph Bunker (b. about 1797 St. Albans, UK) and Mary.  The E-book also includes parish records (except Devonshire) copied to date, military service records from all Bunker families, ships named Bunker Hill with photos and histories, plus numerous images.

Bette Bunker Richards continues to update both compilations with as much as possible about the descendants, especially the descendants of female Bunkers. If there are additions that should be included, please provide those to Bette.
