This is a very good question. On all the records (or copies) that I have seen of this Family when they were living along the Hudson was spelled LANT OR LANDT. The landt is a very common sufix in German,it means simply, land. I even think some of with name changed to land. Some still use the LANT spelling. I think the Launt spelling might be unique to Jeremiah and Peter families.
