The Hunt's of Mohill, County Leitrim, Ireland
Thomas Hunt is listed in a 1726 census taken by the Church of Ireland. This is the first record of the Hunt family that lived in Curraun, Mohill, Co. Leitrim for several hundred years. The lack of early records makes it hard to track the family but some records have been found. Most of records are from the Townland of Curraun.
Three Hunt brothers, George, John and Robert left Ireland for Ontario, Canada from 1820 to 1840. Their families have spread across Canada and into the United States. There are also records for the families of William, Joseph, Thomas and Alexander Hunt, some of whom still live in Ireland.
Family tradition tells that we are related to the Hunt's of Limerick.
