Recorded as Huntar, Hunter, and the female Huntress and Huntriss, this ancient surname is of Anglo-Scottish origins. The derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "hunta", from "huntian"

I have found Hunter ancestors listed as Hownter, Huntar and Huntare. Circa 1600 and mid 1700 These showed up in the Uphall ,West Lothian area. I hope this helps. Also the name John was spelled Jhone.

Have you tried connecting with They may be able to help you find the variants and possibly septs. I have found that the Clan organizations are a great tool in at least pointing me in a direction!

Hope this helps!
