Dunkerley

1991 TE2. Discovered 1991 Oct. 2 by Y. Kushida and O. Muramatsu at Yatsugatake.

Named in honor of Charlotte Herschel Dunkerley, a descendant of William Herschel {see planet (2000)} who recently completed the Herschel family genealogy as a result of the family reunion that took place in Bath in 1988 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of William Herschel's birth. More than 80 descendants attended the occasion and amended the family records upon which the revised genealogy is based. The record of the Herschel family began around the year 1600 and is a valuable resource for researchers and historians in the field of astronomy. (M 29147)

Name proposed by the discoverers following a suggestion by S. Kimura.
