Limerick Ireland Bantings

The Irish cluster of those with the surname Banting seem to be centered in County Limerick.

From the book ‘The Families of County Limerick Ireland’ by Michael O’Laughlin, he has found evidence of the name from the middle ward of Limerick City where the name of James Banting appears in the 1659 census and at about the same time the name pops up in the ‘Poll Money Ordnance’ records.
