Surname Saturday – Punter

Last week, I shared the information I had for Lucy Punter.  This week, I am sharing the information I have found for her parents, and the Punter family from Christian Malford

James Punter was christened 20 February 1742 at Christian Malford, Wiltshire, England.  His parents were Thomas and Jane Punter.

He married Lucy Hendon on 7 July 1766 at Dauntsey, Wiltshire, England. James was “of Christian Malford” and Lucy was “of this parish”.

James and Lucy had 2 children:

  • Lucy Punter (1767-1851)
  • Alice Punter (1770-?)

I haven’t found a burial for James yet.

I couldn’t find a marriage of a Thomas Punter to a Jane around 1742 at Christian Malford when using the Search on Ancestry, so I decided to browse the Christian Malford parish registers to see if I could find it that way.  I still couldn’t find the marriage, so I decided to make a list of all the entries I could find for the surname Punter in Christian Malford, between 1706 and 1775.  These were the results:

1763 April 14 Punter Burials Thos Punter
1768 Jan 14 Punter Burials Jane Punter

Since Thomas Punter married Mary Coleman in 1709, he would have been born between about 1670 and 1690.  The parish registers for this period are hard to decipher, so I have not gone back any further on this line at this stage.
