He was a British Army general who served in World War I at Gallipoli and was also a Scottish Unionist MP.

He was born at Hunterston, West Kilbride, on 23 September 1864, the son of Lieutenant-Colonel John Gould Read Hunter-Weston (1823-1904), and his second wife, who was the daughter and heir of the 25th Laird of Hunterston.  He married Grace Strang-Steel on 5 December 1905.  He died on 18 Mar 1940 at age 75, following an accident, without issue.

In my research for my Hunter One-Name Study he is my favorite.  He has data everywhere I research especially Hunters in the News.

I have been researching my family tree for over thirty-three years and a member of Clan Hunter. In 2015 I registered the surname Hunter with the Guild of One-Name Studies and this blog will be my goal to share my research, photos, and as the clan's travel agent 2017 I will be adding our Clan Hunter Gathering 2017 which was very special because our Clan Hunter's 30th Laird participated in the opening of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle August 5th, 10:30 p.m. with her clansmen. Find A Grave contributor #47833985 Being a travel agent since 1991 I am a SCOTSagent, BRITagent, and at the present have two group tours to Scotland in 2017. One is a Clan Hunter Gathering at Hunterston Castle given by Madam Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, 30th Laird of Clan Hunter.
