Hunter Genealogy & History

Hunter is an English and Scottish name. As might be expected, it was originally an occupational name given to someone who hunted animals. It was derived from the Old English "hunta", meaning "to hunt." It could also be derived from the Latin "venator", meaning "hunter." Hunter family history in Scotland begins in Ayrshire, though they likely moved to Scotland from Ireland in the fifth or sixth century. The first person recorded with the name is William Huntar (an alternate spelling) in 1116. Hunter genealogy includes Protestant martyr William Hunter and baseball pitcher James "Catfish" Hunter. The Hunter family motto is "cursum perfectio", which means "I complete the race".
