George Huntress of Newington, N. H. (1644-1715)
and Some of his Descendants
and Also My Ancestors

Purpose

This web site is a single name study of the surname, Huntress, to which I have added my own ancestors.

One goal is to correctly identify all people with the Huntress surname and avoid the genealogical trap of confusing two people of the same name. My database contains 71 men named George Huntress - the only way to correctly identify a particular one is to have accurate family trees for them all.

A second goal is to provide an accurate, documented genealogy of all descendants of George Huntress of Bloody Point (now Newington), New Hampshire and his apparent father, George Huntress of Plymouth, co Devon, England (c.1607-<1676). If someone identifies an ancestor on one of these pages they should be able to take advantage of my research to complete their family tree.

I have been working on this project for thirteen years, spending about 1,000 hours per year on it (thank you wife, Joan, for your support).

So far I have found 7194 Huntress descendants and 931 of my ancestors.

In that time period Hunt was often used in place of Huntress and Solomon Huntress changed his name to Hunt.

  • Harriet Huntress Added to her Scotchler descendants.

Site Changes:

  • To keep my web site at less than 1 GB I had to confine the people to just Huntress Descendants, my ancestors, and their siblings, spouses and parents.
  • Added icons for Huntress Descendants, Mayflower Descendants, etc.
  • Made each person display on a separate page. This is better for printing.
  • Added Charts for Relatives of Paul.
  • Added indexes for Mayflower Descendants and Famous People on the "People" tab.
  • My new policy is to include a copy of each digital source image. You can make the image larger or smaller using cntrl-+ or cntrl-"-"
