Rundles of St. Neot – Baltimore

Four of the children of Jonathan “of Pengelly” Rundle and Eleanor Henwood immigrated to Baltimore, Maryland. After Jonathan’s death, Eleanor joined her children in the US.  This page is the updated information on this line.

This is an interesting branch of the family. It includes cousins fighting on both sides in the Civil War, an escape from prison, a prominent publishing family and even a mysterious case of mistaken identity of a dead body.

Some of the Rundles in this line stayed in Baltimore. Others branched out to Cincinnati, Ohio, Kentucky and Nashville, TN.

Generation One


  1. Jonathan1 Rundle, b. 1800 in St. Neot, Cornwall, ENG,[1],[2],[3],[4],[5] (son of Jonathan “of Pengelly” Rundle [1768 – 1821] and Eleanor Henwood [1769 – 1854]), baptized 2 Nov 1800 in St. Neot, Cornwall, ENG,1 d. 18 May 1886 in Nashville, Davidson, Tennessee, US,2 buried in Cincinnati, Ohio, resided in Cincinnati, Ohio. Jonathan arrived in Baltimore, Maryland in 1828 when he was listed on the “letters waiting” list for Baltimore.

Based on the birthplaces of their children, the family left Maryland sometime around 1835 for Virginia.

They then left Virginia sometime around 1842 for Kentucky.

They then moved to Cincinnati, Ohio sometime around 1846.

In 1850 and 1860, Jonathan was a widower. He and children were living in Ohio.

In 1880 Jonathan was living with son, Jonathan Jr, in Nashville.


He was married to Elizabeth Butcher, on 12 Oct 1826 in Baltimore Co, Maryland, US.[6]  Elizabeth: Grandson’s middle name is “Blutcher”.  Either his name is mispelled on WWI Draft Registration (However he filled it out and signed his name), or her name was possibly “Blutcher”. Her name is spelled “Butcher” on her marriage record.

Youngest son was born in 1847 in Ohio, and by 1850 Jonathan was a widower living in Ohio.

viii. William Marvin Rundle, b. Jan 1845 in Kentucky, US,3,4,[10] d. 24 Dec 1900 in Ponea, Oklahoma,[11] occupation Farm Laborer; Cowboy.10  William never  married.

In 1860, William was living with his father in Cincinnatti, Ohio

According to article about his suicide in 1900, “Marvin” had joined the Confederate Army as a young boy. The family was told that he was killed in the war, but George ran in to him on the way back to Tennessee. Then Marvin traveled around the country. They were told at another time that he was dead, but he showed up again.

In 1870,  William Rundle, age 24, b. Kentucky,  was working as farmer in Blackwater, Missouri

In 1880, there is a William Rundle, age 31, born Kentucky, working as a “winer” in California. This could be this William.

In 1900 William was age 55, single, and  a farm laborer boarding with two farmers at the Osage Indian Reservation in Oklahoma. His father is listed as being born in England and mother in Maryland.

William had corresponded with his niece, Effie Rundle Yost, and when he committed suicide on Christmas Eve 1900, he was found with a sealed letter addressed to her. He also had one of his brother George’s business cards on his person. This led officials to believe that he was in fact George and notified his family that it was George who had committed suicide. Once the body was sent to George’s wife, she and her daughter, Effie, viewed it and realized that it was in fact, “Marvin”, as they called him.

They contacted his brother John Rundle in Nashville, however even though he was financially able, he refused to pay for Marvin’s burial and so his body was given to the Anatomical Society.

  1.                  B. Frank Rundle, b. c. 1847 in Ohio, US,3,4,[12] d. post 1890, occupation Marble and Stone Cutter,12,[13] resided 30 Mercer St. in Cincinnatti, Ohio.13  He was sometimes listed as “B. Frank” and sometimes “Frank B.”

In 1860, Frank was living with his father in Cincinnatti, Ohio

In 1869 City Directory, Frank was living in Cincinnatti and working as a Marble Cutter.

In 1870, Frank, age 22,  was living in same house as sister, Ellen, and her family, in Newport, Campbell, Kentucky. He was working as a stone cutter.

According to city directories, he was back in Cincinnatti by 1872, working as a stone cutter. He was still in Cincinnati in 1890

I can’t find any definite info on him after that.

In 1860, John, Sarah and daughter, Julia, lived in Charleston, Virginia (now West Virginia). John’s brother, Jonathan lived with the family.


According to the Genealogical and Personal History of the Upper Monongahela Valley, John, listed as “former editor of the Valley Star, and who served in the Confederate cause, was about to return to his old home in the Kanawha Valley. He published a notice to the public reading: ‘ If you (the Union men) will treat us right and not insult us, we will keep quiet; but if you don’t, these hills will be filled with sharpshooters’.”

In 1870, John and second wife, Kitty, lived in 17th District, Edgefield, Davidson County, Tennessee.  John’s daughters with Sarah, Julia, Theresa and Emma lived with them.

“John Rundle was the founder and editor of the first newspaper ever printed at Charleston. He was born at Wheeling, W. Va., and later lived at Cincinnati, O. Then he and sister came here, she as his housekeeper. ”


Concerning politics in Kanawha County, Virginia: “… while Kanawha could elect Whigs to the House, the Senators were always Democrats; but this was not always. The Whig party was represented by the “Kanawha Republican,” edited by Mr. Newton, and the Democrats published the “Kanawha Valley Star,” edited by Mr. Rundle. Both of these papers were assisted by the attorneys as far as the political editorials were concerned.”

Obituary of Jonathan Theodore Rundle, Nashville, Tennessee.


Again the roll call has been answered by another of our gallant old soldiers. On January 6, 1915, Jonathan Theodore Rundle joined the ranks of heroes on the other shore. Brave, generous, self-sacrificing, he was ever ready with heart and hand to help his fellow man.


Mr. Rundle was born at Wheeling, W. Va., April 12, 1836, being the son of Jonathan and Elizabeth Bucher Rundle, formerly of England. The family removed to Cincinnati, where his mother died when he was ten years of age. Later he went to Charleston, W. Va., and when the call came for volunteers for the South he, with his brother, Capt. John Rundle, joined the 36th Virginia Regiment. In the battle of Fort Donelson he received a serious wound, which left him incapacitated for further service. When the was taken by the Federals he was made prisoner and placed in the Federal hospital at Nashville. From that place he was stolen away one night by three noble Southern women who loved and cared for the soldiers. Mrs. Robert Gardner, Mrs. Fort, and Mrs. M. Taylor, a dead comrades body being placed on his cot. For two years he was unable to go about, but when he did get out it came his way to render a valuable service to Governor Johnson, who never forgot it, and he gave to Mr. Rundle special protection and privileges.


After the war Mr. Rundle became an active citizen of Nashville, making that his home until his death. He is survived by his wife, who was Margaret Taylor, the adopted daughter of one of the ladies who removed him from the hospital, and their four children, a son and three daughters.
