Families covered: Hunt of Ashen, Hunt of Bradley, Hunt of Cappagh White, Hunt of Curragh Chase (Currah), Hunt of Friarstown, Hunt of Glangoole, Hunt of Gosfield, (Le) Hunt of Hunt's Hall, Hunt of Ligadoon, Hunt of Springfield

Alhough the family shown in the lower section may well have been connected to that shown in the upper section, we have no evidence to support such a view. Given that a loose application of the generalisation that there were 3 generations to a century implies that the following John lived in the 12th century, whilst what we know of (for example) the Clopton family makes it difficult to make a connection to that family, we are suspicious of the early pedigree shown for the following family. It may be that generations have been confused (for example: successors being treated as sons rather than brothers) or it may be that some of the following is simply spurious. We do not know.
