Note: The first generation of the Bunn family in America started with Dr. Thomas Bunn, Surgeon and Physician of Jamestown, VA., who lived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1621. The exact date Dr. Bunn migrated to the new world from England is not known, however, records show that he filed claims for payment against two patients who did not pay for his services in 1621 & 1622.
Thomas Bunn I, a surgeon, was outfitted by the Virginia Company of London and sent to Virginia in 1620. He lived in a household on the Governor's Land near Jamestown and testified at an inquest into the 1624 death of a servant named Elizabeth Abbott. Numerous accounts document the settlers' demands for Bunn's medical skills. In 1626, he successfully sued an indentured servant who was compelled to serve an additional month. The same servant later apologized for making false accusations.
