surname in the World
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.

Nicholas Hunter, Yorkshire, 1273. Hundred Rolls.

Tips to Understanding different counties:
Midlothian (formerly Edinburghshire)
Moray (formerly Elginshire)
Angus (formerly Forfarshire)
East Lothian (formerly Haddingtonshire)
West Lothian (formerly Linlithgowshire)
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
