    Biography Notes
    • Albert had been born (according to the Biographical Index) at Bashley Manor house, Bashley, Hampshire, England, although the marriage notice of his sister Charlotte says Bashley manor farm. His age in 1874 was 29 making his binhdate o. 1845 but his age at death makes it 1841. Albert's father was living in 1864 at lnchmerry Villa, Exbury, Hampshire. ln that year his sister Anna Elizabeth married William James Magary of Adelaide at Woodside where Albert was then farming. The next year he married her sister-in-law.

      The marriage of Albert was published in the Adelaide "Register' dated 14/3/1865 - "on 13/3/1865, at Enfield at the residence of Thomas Magary Esq. uncle of the bride, by the Rev. G. Stone, Albert Edward Bundey, 3rd son of the late James Bundey Esq. of Bashley Manor House, Bashley, to «b»Elizabeth Mary Magary«/b», eldest daughter of the late James Magary, Esq."

      Elizabeth Magary (b. 27/10/1838, Lancashire) whose parents were Mary (nee Knott) and James Magary died on 18/3/1866 at the residence of her uncle, Glenelg, soon after the birth of her baby and was buried at the West Terrace Cemetery as was the infant Mary Alberta Bundey born 9/2/1866 - died aged 5 months on 14/7/1866.

      Albert appears to have arrived in S.A. from New Zealand on 21/9/1845 by the "Palmyra" although the wording in the Biographical Index could refer to Elizabeth Magary. He continued for a time at the Woodside farm, then sold and began again at East Wellington where he took Rose Ann in 1874.

      MARRIAGE: at St. Bartholomew's C. of E. Norwood as the second wife of «b»Albert Edward Bundey«/b», farmer of East Wellington, S.A.
      DEATH: Albert Edward Bundey died at Strathalbyn 21/11/1907 aged 66 and was buried there but the record says "exhumed" at a later date and reburled at West Terrace, City.

      OBITUARY: from the "Soulhern Argus" dated 28/11/1907.

      "By the death which occurred on Thursday last at the Strathalbyn Private Hospital of Mr A. E. Bundey, the district of Wellington lost one of its oldest settlers and one of its most highly esteemed men. Mr Bundey who was a brother of the ex-Judge Henry Bundey was taken ill some little time ago though no grave fears were felt, but alarming symptoms developed rapidly last week and he was brought hurriedly to Strathalbyn, unfortunately too late for surgical skill to avail, and he gradually grew worse, dying on Thursday last leaving a widow, two sons and two daughters. Mrs Bundey is a daughter of the late Mr Archibald McLean (one of the pioneers of the south) and is a sister of Mrs Edward Wartand, Port Victor. The funeral of the deceased gentleman took place on Saturday at the Strathalbyn Cemetery."
