Bantings on Berkshire Burial Index

As we all know, many of the Banting clusters are on the borders of the counties Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire with ‘spillage across the narrow county of Berks into Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

So, with this in mind and a concerted look at the records that Berkshire Family History Society have in their vaults, here are the results for Banting’s buried in Berkshire.

    Joseph Banting buried in Ascot Heath in 1885 was born and lived all his life in Upper Clatford near Andover. He and his wife Sarah Churcher had 13 children, and he also had an illegitimate daughter, Ann, who emigrated to Canada with her mother and stepfather, Charlotte Joyce and Richard Newman of Wherwell. Ann has many descendants in Canada and the USA (New Hampshire/Vermont). Joseph’s daughter Harriett (m. James Cripps) lived in Ascot and it seems likely that in Joseph’s old age he went to live with her and was thus buried there when he died.
