Thomas Hunt was born about 1730.

He lived in the part of Bedford County, Virginia which became Franklin County, Virginia.

His second wife was Ann.

His children probably included:
Jesse Hunt (1755),
Uriah Hunt (1757, married Sarah Kincheloe),
Esli Hunt (1759),
Mary Hunt (1761),
Thomas Hunt (1762),
William Hunt (1763),
Asenath Hunt (1765, married Richard Humphreys),
Joel Hunt (1766),
Peter Hunt (1768 ),
Elizabeth Hunt (1769),
Moses Hunt (1771),
John Hunt (1773),
Benjamin Hunt (1774), and
Phoebe Hunt (1776).

Some of Thomas' children moved to Washington County, Tennessee.

In 1780, Thomas was imprisoned for being a Tory in Henrico County, Virginia, but was pardoned because he signed the oath of allegiance.

In 1790 Jesse Hunt bought land on Sinking Creek.


During the American Revolution a Tory or Loyalist was used in for those who remained loyal to the British Crown.

Henrico County was established in 1634 as one Virginia's eight original shires. Its boundaries incorporated an area from which ten Virginia counties were later formed.
