    While he was no relation, i found him while searching on line a few years ago . Was Vincent any relation to the present Bunting MP in Jamaica?

      Yes, he is related to the present Peter Bunting MP. I know this because one of his brothers is my mum’s father. I have never met him, but my mum tells me that he is a wonderful person. I am very proud of him.
