These are the Hunt will summaries found on p. 256 of _Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New Jersey, First Series, Vol. XXX, Calendar of Wills, Administrations, etc. Vol. II, 1730-1750_, A. Van Doven Honeyman, ed. 1918

Perhaps a grandson:

This could be the wife of the son Ralph of immigrant Ralph, not sure why he is called "Captain" here:

1732, Nov. 5. Hunt, Captain Ralph, of Maidenhead,"

Hunterdon Co.; will of. Wife, Elizabeth. Eldest son, Edward, 150 acres of land in Hopewell, a gun, etc. Second son, Ralph, a minor, part of plantation above the King's road leading from Trenton to Brunswick, 5 acres of meadow between Samuel Hunt's widow and Powell Huff's, 4 acres of meadow at lower end of lot in great meadow; Ralph to pay legacies to testator's eldest daughter, Jemima Hunt, daughter Kezia, and son John.

Her sons - perhaps grandsons?? - were part of setting up the Presbyterian church there ( from A History of the Old Presbyterian Congregation of "The People of Maidenhead ... By George Hale)

THE PEOPLE OF-MAIDENHEAD AND HOPEWELL. The first authentic evidence that there were Christian people in this region uniting together for the maintenance of religious worship, is found in the record of a deed bearing date 1698-9, March 18th, in which the Honorable Jeremiah Basse, Esq., Governor of the Provinces of East and West Jersey, and Thomas Re- vell, &c., agents of the Honorable the West Jersey Society in England, convey " for the erecting of a meeting- house, and for burying-ground and school-house," one hundred acres of land to " Ralph Hunt, John Bain- bridge, Johannes Lawrenson, William Hixon, John Bryerly, Samuel Hunt, Theophilus Phillips, Jonathan Davis, Thomas Smith, Jasper Smith, Thomas Coleman, Benjamin Hardin, William Akers, Robert Lannen, Philip Phillips, Joshua Andris, Samuel Davis, Elnathan Davis, Enoch Andris, Cornelius Andris, James Price, John Runyan, Thomas Runyan, Hezekiah Bonham, Benjamin Maple, Lawrence Updike, Joseph Sackett, and Edward Hunt, " inhabitants of the said township aforesaid, i. e., Maidenhead, and parts adjacent." There is a strong presumption that the first house of worship for the congregation was erected in what is now called Lawrenceville. Further, the baptismal records of the First Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, show that the Rev. Jedediah Andrews of that church administered the rite of baptism at Maidenhead in 1713 and 1714, and it is matter of ecclesiastical record that the Rev. Robert Orr, the first pastor, was ordained and installed. October 20, 1715, in the meeting-house at Maidenhead.

Mentions the three brothers Edward, Samuel, and Ralph, possibly excluding the other brother, our John.
