Ralph Hunt died 1677

In the company of Englishmen that came to Long Island in 1652, to plant the town since known as Newtown, was Ralph Hunt. He was one of the seven patentees to whom, in behal of themselves and associates, a grant was made by Gov.-Gen. Richard Nicholl, of the land on which Newtown was afterward built. He was, for many years, one of its first magistrates, and actively and prominently engaged in its business interests; as the records abundantly prove. He died 1677, leaving children: Ralph, removed to Jamaica; Edward (2); John, was, for several years, a magistrate; Samuel (3); Mary; and Ann, wife of Theophilus Phillips, (see Phillips family, No.1)
