There are probably a number of early incidences of the Banting surname in Australia.
The one I am familiar with is John Banting whose father John was born in Hambledon Hampshire UK and who went to London to work as a carpenter and lived in Holborn.
John, by a rather circuitous route via America found his way to Bunbury but what I would like to know is do we have another separate line of Banting’s in Australia?
Any help would be so gratefully received.
I also know that Charles Banting was transported to Tasmania but because of his age I’m not certain he would have had a family there…
If you know of a Banting clan with a different root in Australia please let us know, it would be great to add you to our family….
