Australian Banting Family

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….

    Edward Banting who did the majority of the work on Banting’s in Canada, tracked the family of Annie Banting to Australia. Annie was the daughter of William/Thomas Banting who married Isabella Thompson in Westmoreland England. Annie married Thomas Canning. We do not know where William/Thomas came from.
