Dumfries House and Estate from the 18th-c to the present day
Dumfries House was built for the 5th Earl of Dumfries, William Crichton Dalrymple, by John, Robert and James Adam. The Scotland place for this study is Ayrshire as the same of our Hunters. This will definitely be a study to add to my own since we also have the surname Crichton in our Hunter One-Name Study.
Madam Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, Praefectus Venatorus Regis, 30th Chief of Clan Hunter has invited all Hunters interested in their Clan Hunter Gatherings at Hunterston Castle, ancestral seat of the Hunters (and variant Huntar), since 1107.
From Where Does The Surname Originate? meaning and history
This surname is derived from an occupation. or offic. ‘the hunter.’ The earlier form is hunte; v. Hunt. While Hunt is very common I can only find one Hunter in the Hundred Rolls (1273). It became popular soon after, however, as our directories clearly prove.
Adam le Huntere, Close Roll, 52 Henry III.
Nicholas Hunter, Yorkshire, 1273. Hundred Rolls.

If you have some confusion as to why some counties contain a hyphen before the -shire suffix, it is to avoid the triple s that would otherwise result. Counties ending in a single s do not contain a hyphen.
All the help I can get is really appreciated in this study since I am definitely a new learner.
Ancestry’s announcement of product updates, including new tool for working with DNA match data will definitely be a big help.
One of those tools, ThruLines™, uses data from users’ public or private, searchable trees linked (to their DNA results), and data from other public and private but searchable trees to show how users could connect to their DNA matches through common ancestors. Like two other new tools, MyTreeTags™and New & Improved DNA Matches, it’s still in beta.
“Since ThruLines are based on the family trees of you and other members of Ancestry, they’re as accurate as the trees they’re based on.” – Ancestry.com
