      Bunbury was returned to Parliament as one of two representatives for Suffolk in 1761, a seat he held until 1784 and again from 1790 to 1812.
      He was also High Sheriff of Suffolk in 1788.

      Bunbury married firstly Lady Sarah, daughter of Charles Lennox, 2nd Duke of Richmond (a grandson of Charles II), and one of the famous Lennox sisters, in 1762. Their notorious marriage, which produced no children (although Sarah gave birth to a daughter by her lover Lord William Gordon in 1769), was dissolved by Act of Parliament in 1776 (on the grounds of Sarah's adultery).

      He married secondly a woman by the name of Margaret sometime after 1776. There were no children from this marriage either. Bunbury died in March 1821, aged 80, and was succeeded by his nephew, Henry. Margaret, Lady Bunbury, died in February 1822.
