I decided to start doing a one Name study after finding my paternal lineage was associated with the Lairds of Hunterston.
The current status of the study is to find the DNA connection to the common ancestor John Huntar, 14th Laird of Hunterston. There is a FamilyTreeDNA project for our surname Hunter and I feel very certain this will be found.
My main interests in the study is to build family construction for Hunters in Scotland, England and Wales, Ireland, Canada and Australia. Variants of this surname will also be researched. In the Surname Atlas there will be many variants to be studied.
