Percy William Bunting was a barrister and editor. He married Mary Ledgett in 1869.


Bunting was called to the bar in 1862 but also went on to develop a journalistic career. In 1882 he was appointed examiner in equity and real property law at the University of London. Around the same time he became editor of the Contemporary Review, a post he seems to have held until at least 1898. He was knighted in 1908.
