    This John and Elizabeth were my wife’s 3xgreat grandparents twice over. Their granddaughter Elizabeth Adelaide Holford married her cousin, Charles William Banting grandson of John and Elizabeth.
    My mother-in-law Isabel neeBanting was told by her father that they were not related to the Hambledon Bantings. Seems hard to believe but we have not yet disproved that.

      Hi Robert
      Helen Banham here, we have spoken several times over the years and finally thanks to a brilliant friend this is the initial attempt by me to push out a geomapped Banting site.
      It’s all early stages yet but I want to curate all info on Bantings and see where we can illuminate connections between these disparate clusters of Bantings.
      Eventually I will be able to invite all to post their data but we have lots to do.
      We are going to be at WDYTYA show in Feb with http://www.intriguingfamilyhistory.
      Good as ever to hear from you, all comments welcomed as the site develops!!
