Hunters from Angus

Angus is the new name given to Forfarshire in 1928. There is a fair amount of Hunter history in Forfarshire. The Burnside Hunters are the largest documented group so a good place to start. This page does not mean that is all there is, it is merely a door-opener. There are many other Hunters families from this county worth a mention, for their contributions to history and also just for being there.

Hunters of Forfarshire
The book, The Hunters of Forfarshire 1528-1928, written by G. G. G. Hunter in 1928, was privately printed with about 128 numbered copies. In it are details of the history and genealogy of the Hunters of Burnside, Restenneth, Forfar, Balgay, Baldovie, Blackness and more. I have copied it here, as it was written, added parts and updated the genealogy using sources, not then available.
I have spread this over 12 web-pages, each page follows the other. If you are looking for a specific page I have listed them below.
