Hunt (Co Galway)

The Hunt estate was centred on the house at Ballymantan, near Gort, in the mid-19th century. Edmund L. Hunt is recorded in the OS Name Books as agent for Richard Gregory of Coole in the 1830s. Burke's ''Landed Gentry'' records Edmund Lombard of Ballynamantan and of Headford, county Galway. They were descended from a Warwickshire family and connected with the Hunt family of Danesfort, county Cork.
