      Origins ofthis Hunt family by family oral tradition. The immigrant ancestor was a McFarland who was adopted by a Hunt family or raised by a Hunt family and assumed orwas given the Hunt name either as an orphan in Wales or in North Carolina. Despite where the orphan received the Hunt name, the immigrant ancestor is supposed to have come to the United States (after voyaging to France or Germany) arriving at Charleston, S. C. settling "near Charlotte," and then to Blount County,Tennessee. It is unclear if this is one individual or the movement of a family over a few generations.
      This is a complilation of various stories all havingcommon elements which were repeated since the 1800s by parts of the family some of which were separated by 1851. All that we can confirm is "near Charlotte"(Rutherford County, NC) and Blount County, TN.

      An analysis of the 1820 census information of Thomas Hunt in Rutherford County, NC matches kown birth datesand children of Thomas and Lucy Hunt with the exception of one male child who cannot be accounted for. No other Thomas Hunt in the 1820 census of North Carolina comes nearly as close matching known children born by 1820. In addiition,there are numerous family ties of other emigrants from Rutherford County, NC to Blount County, TN resulting in marriages with children or grandchildren of Thomas and Lucy Hunt. Evidence that the Hunt family was in North Carolina in theperiod before 1820 is that children list North Carolina as place of birth later on their own household censuses.
