Is it possible to find his spouse and children?

Earlier I had a doubt about this Hunt because of his Irish roots, but now it is more likely that the Hunt I am looking for came from Ireland.

There is another William Hunt who was married to Sarah Ann, but he was a miller.

Unfortunately there does not appear to be an estate file for William.  The estate file would have given details of his next of kin.

Hi

Do you have any more information of William Hunt, ie name of wife, children, place of marriage etc.
Was he buried with his wife?

In 1862 a William Hunt married Amelia/Emily Sparling in Limerick.  Both gave addresses as Rathkeale. See:-

I don't have any more information. The Hunt I am looking for married an Afrikaner most obviously in South Africa. Her haplogroup is H1ak1.

The link does not work, but if this Hunt is the same person as in my link, he probably is not my Hunt.
