My 3x great father was also a Thomas Brunger. He was born about 1778 (somewhere in Kent) and was married to Mary Nightingale (b 1780). They lived in the Deal area of Kent and were married on 12 December 1813 at St Leonards Parish Church, Deal. There has always been some confusion about the spelling of Brunger. Many have it spelt Bronger, but that is not correct. So anyone out there that has Bronger should look at Brunger instead.
My Thomas Brunger died in 1833 at Walmer, Kent. He had three children, Sarah (b 1814 Walmer)(my great, great grandmother), Charles (b 1815 Walmer) and William (b 1816 Walmer). In 1834 Sarah married Edward Claringbold and they had nine children, one of whom was Elizabeth Ann, my great grandmother. She married Richard William Allen in 1859 that was the start of my Allen family.
