No patent was ever granted to the name Bundy, if this search query is correct. ( Not conclusive, but for sake of completeness.)

I don’t know what the land rights the BLM attempted to buy from the rancher, but I don’t believe the rancher claims to be a patentee. The reason I find this interesting, is if the BLM is asserting an authority, why did they first try to buy whatever land rights it is the rancher owned? In any event, I don’t know the name of the rancher’s ancestor who purportedly secured the rights that were passed through generation. I think it’s important to note, that the ancestors *sold* the rights, so there should be legal records somewhere.
