This is a document summarising some of the most interesting and significant content within the Bunbury archive (MIC238, T3795 and T3048B) held in PRONI.


There are three versions/variants of the mainly Irish papers of the Bunbury family of Barton, West Suffolk, in PRONI:

  • a microfilm copy of a set of mid-19th century, family-compiled extracts from Bunbury correspondence, 1759 to 1821
  • photocopies of modern typescript copies of some, and more, of these letters, around 1760 to 1860
  • photocopies of the originals of some 45 letters relating to the '98 Rebellion and to participants in it, particularly Lord and Lady Edward Fitzgerald, 1783 to 1839
