  • Notes 
    • These Hunters came from County Ayr, Scotland, where they were hunters by occupation-hence the name. Due to religious persecution in Scotland, the Hunters moved to Northern Ireland. David Hunter came to Nova Scotia from Aghadowey, in Londonderry County, Ireland with his wife and six children. Two more children were born in Nova Scotia. David Hunter's wife was Margaret Martin, daughter of Lodowick Martin of Ulster. Their ship was bound for Philadelphia but was wrecked off Sable Island, not far from Nova Scotia. Another vessel 'The Good Ship Blessing' came to the rescue and took the Hunter family and other passengers to Halifax. The Hunter family settled on the Wentworth Road near Windsor (Hants County) and lived there from 1769 until 1785.
      They then moved to Ardoise Hill, at St. Croix.
