Welcome to the Bunn Heritage page! The name Bunn has been around for about 1000 years. It probably came from France as a derivation of Good or 'Bon'.
Somewhere around the time of the third crusade a distant relative did something to earn a crest. I have been working on converting the text of Lighting Ancestral Lamps by William Benton Bunn to html, and it should be up shortly. Also I found the online version of History of the Bunn Family by French.
