The following information about the Poquoson Smith Bunting is quoted from Thomas Vincent Watkins' "A History of Poquoson, Virginia," part two, page 15:
There were the watermen who were expert seamen, identified by the title "Cap'n." There is an account of a motion made to the court at York by Smith Bunting and Jesse Topping, and so ordered by the court that they be permitted to purchase and transport oysters from the waters of York or Poquoson rivers, out of the state in their vessel called the "Union" with a burthen of 22 tons whereof the said Jesse Topping is master. They posted bond with security as the law required. At court of Monday, 17 September 1820 [York Order Book 10 (1820-1825), p. 85].
In October of the same year, Bunting petitioned that John Powell, "in the room of" William Topping be accepted as security for him and Joseph Topping as carrying oysters out of the state in the vessel, "Union of York."
Smith Bunting's first wife was Nancy Rogers, whom he married in 1805, probably in Accomack Co., VA, by whom he had 1 daughter.
