Hello everyone,

I have found this message most interesting as I am a from this hunter linage.

I am from Tennessee but have researched the Hunter family to Virginia. My ancestors received a land grant shortly after the Revolutionary War, and the land grand was for the Hunter's, Hunt's, Teasley's, and Sharon Families.

However back to the information. I have gone back to William Hunter Born in 1650 was a weaver and came to America. American notes say he was from Alnwick. But I have A Christening record for him in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1666. Is father is listed as William Hunter as well Born abt 1624.

However, from stories from my uncle Dempsey, who was a 102 in the late 70s. he and I had long discussions regarding the hunter family. And according to him, we are from the Hunter Clan, and the head of the family is the Laird of Hunterston. Scotland. But I have not found the connection as of yet. But I would be happy to share any information.
