There has been much discussion about the work of Charles, the father and his son John Buncombe. According to McKechnie Committee Minutes for 1830 regarding the apprenticeship of John Buncombe prove that he could not be responsible for much work that has been ascribed to him as he was not born. It has been speculated that the 'J' on the trade labels(as seen on this silhouette) is a miss-reading, or indicative of Charles' middle name. Discussion about the true identity of Buncombe silhouettes is ongoing.
