John was born about 1653. He passed away about 1737. Some early acounts err in believing he was born in 1633 and died at 104 but they have proved incorrect. A 3 and 5 are easily confused.
His father is noted as Captain Vere, the son of Henry and Lady Jane de Vere in Burke's landed genetry on the Hunts of Cummer More.
Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Lloyd (Hunt) de Vere Hunt, FTDNA kit #B231134 and his 6th cousin twice removed, Thomas Hunt, FTDNA kit #?????, match at a Genetic Distance of 3 of 37 markers thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA John of Glangoole Hunt. FTDNA indicates that the probability the two share a common ancestor within the last 6 generations is 53.98% and within the last 7 generations is 63.58%.
Lloyd (Hunt) de Vere Hunt, FTDNA kit #B231134 and his 8th cousin, Living Hunt, son of Vere John Urquhart Hunt FTDNA kit #?????, match at a Genetic Distance of 3 of 37 markers thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCA Captain Vere Hunt. FTDNA indicates that the probability the two share a common ancestor within the last 8 generations is 57.04%
Y 37 Marker - J- M172 (predicted J-L70) match on file at FTDNA. Match may be viewed at the Hunt FTNA page under Group 69 and match tips probabilities exceed 50% at their generation level.
In terms of overall proof, documentary proof is solid showing full continuity of family and two have an autosomal match as well as other family autosomal matches which have only possible link with the male line of this family

The Y paternal relationship and its recentness is also confirmed by a MyHeritage test match between Mary Ann Deariso and Lloyd de Vere Hunt and his father Gerald Aubrey Hunt. Mary Ann connects with the Hunt line at Margaret Ingram Hunt and is 6th cousin twice removed to Gerald and 7th cousin once removed to Lloyd
Give full knowledge of Lloyd's paternal family line, he can attest to no other connection with Georgia and the Hunt-Georgia connection is both well documented with Irish and USA sources
Predicted relationship from MyHeritage: 3rd cousin to distant cousin based on sharing 30.8 cm across 2 segments and 23.7 across 1 The triangulation between Lloyd, Gerald and Mary Ann is chromosome 1 118794218 160265515 rs12126598 rs3789042 23.6 7296.
This is a unique match and therefore avoids the possibility that it could be from a number of other lines and is precluded from the mother's contribution as the upper linkage is with two different mothers, so it comes from John Hunt for sure.
