I. Nicholas Hunter, son of William of Nansemond Co, went to Carteret
Precinct where in 1729, he and his wife Rebecca (through his attorney Thomas
Rountree) made a deed to his son Isaac for land, part of which was a grant
to William Hunter, father of Nicholas, in Virginia on April 24, 1701. He
also made a deed for adjoining land to his son William Hunter, (Chowan
County Deeds 1714-35, p.599, 600, at the N. C. State Department of Archives
and History). Isaac and William, probably were by a wife previous to
Rebecca and they remained in Albemarle. Isaac is not named in the will of
his father, Nicholas, but the deed from Nicholas to Isaac and the deed from
Isaac Junior of Bertie to Isaac Hunter, Senior, of Chowan, dated May 2, 1739
(Chowan Deed Book C No. 2, p 45) proves that the Isaac Hunter, Junior, was
the son of Nicholas.
He made his will in Carteret County on Feb. 3, 1749 and named wife, Rebecca,
and children Stephen, Easter, Tillahy, dau, Kisiah Mitchell, Ezekiel,
William, Sarah, Ruth and Joab. He also named a grandson George Mitchell. A
memorandum that if Stephen or Easter should die without heirs their estate
to go to the heirs of their mother, indicates that they also were children
of a previous wife.

Notes for JACOB HUNTER:


Jacob Hunter son of Isaac stayed in Gates Co.

He was a member of the Hillsboro Convention of 1776. He was appointed by the
April Congress in Edenton District to establish the manufacture of arms, and
to secure muskets and bayonets for the army. He was 2nd Major of Chowan
Minute Men September 9, 1775. Like his father before him he was a member of
the Vestry of St Paul's Parish and Lay Reader at Constance Chapel. Prior to
the Revolution, Jacob Hunter and the members of Constance Chapel, except the
Gordon family, severed relationship with the English Church and everything
pertaining to England and became just as ardent members of the new Methodist
Church.

Sarah Pugh Hill "was the daughter of Henry Hill. Henry Hill was the son of
Abraham Hill and Judith, his wife. Abraham Hill was the son of Henry Hill
and Mary Pugh. Mary Pugh was the daughter of Daniel Pugh, who with his
brothers Frances and Thomas, [the emigrants] settled in Upper Nansemond
County VA. in 1665". -From The Hunter Family by William T Cross.
======================================
Isaac Hunter born at the Jacob Hunter home near Sunbury in what is now
Hunter's Mill Township, Gates County on Aug 29, 1759 and died Oct 22 1816.
He owned the Jacob Hunter home place, the Mill and Mill Pond and all the
land lying on the right hand side of the road going from the Mill towards
Suffolk up to what is now the Kellog Farm. He farmed and operated the Mill
all his life. At about age 21 he was appointed the First Public Register of
the County, he moved to Gatesville and purchased the Tavern later known as
the United States Hotel; he also bought the corner store which he operated.
Several years later he returned to his home located on "Sugar Run Road.".
The road on which Isaac Hunter lived was the Main Road leading from Edenton
to Suffolk and over which the stage ran. In 1804 the main road was changed
to run through what is now Sunbury which crossed over the old Mill Pond.
Isaac Hunter built a new house where the roads cross. In the yard of his new
home a sun flower came up and it is family tradition that he named his place
Sunbury. Like his father, Jacob, he left the English Church and became a
leader in the New Methodist Church; and it was at his home that Bishop
Asbury stayed on several of his visits to the County. He gave the land on
which Philadelphia Methodist Church was built and was one of those
instrumental is establishing this Church. Isaac Hunter gave the new church
in Sunbury its name according to family tradition.
