Hunting (family)

  • Famille

Seth et William Hunting, les fondateurs de Huntingville et participants actifs à l’établissement de l’Église universaliste dans ce village, sont les premiers Hunting à s’établir dans les Cantons-de-l’Est. Nés à Hubbardston, au Massachusetts, William et Seth Hunting comptent parmi les quatre enfants de William Hunting et de Lydia Wheelock. William Hunting (1784-1832), leur fils aîné, et Mary (Polly) Stone (1782-1853) se marient en 1809 et déménagent par la suite à Templeton, au Massachusetts, d’où vient la famille de Mary. Mary est la fille aînée de Catharine Wyman et Leonard Stone, second époux de Catharine. Auparavant, Catharine a épousé en premières noces Aaron Kendall, qui meurt après dix ans de mariage, en 1881. De son premier mariage, la mère de Mary (Polly) Stone avait déjà trois enfants. Les liens familiaux du côté des Stone sont significatifs dans la famille Hunting car celle-ci reçoit une abondante correspondance de ces parents des États-Unis. Après la naissance de deux filles en 1809 et 1811, William et Mary Polly Hunting déménagent dans le canton d’Ascot, dans la province du Bas-Canada, en 1812. Même si la raison de ce déménagement n’est pas certaine, il est probable qu’ils y ont été attirés par des parents de Mary Stone qui étaient déjà partis s’installer vers le nord.

En 1815, Seth Hunting (1788-1872) emmène sa nouvelle épouse, Nancy Davis, dans les Cantons-de-l’Est et achète du terrain le long de la rivière Salmon, devenue rivière Ascot, ce qui sera le futur site de Huntingville. À ce moment, William et sa famille déménagent quittent Ascot pour venir rejoindre Seth là où il avait choisi de s’établir. Seth et Nancy Hunting ont six enfants : Stephen (1815-1841), Susan (1816-1886), Henry W. (1830-1896), William Seth (1865-1950), Fredrick A. (1867-1868 et Charles P. (1864-1931). Bien que la terre où les moulins seront éventuellement situés appartienne à Seth, il semble que celui-ci soit plus agriculteur que meunier et que ce serait William qui aurait construit les moulins.

William Hunting et Mary (Polly) Stone ont six enfants : Betsey (1809-1832), Catharine (1811-1838), William (1815-1892), Leonard (1820-1842), Lyman E. (1821-1850) et Ephraim, mort en très bas âge. William Hunting construit et exploite le premier barrage sur la rivière et construit par la suite un moulin à blé et un moulin à bois sur ses rives. Il exploite aussi un autre moulin sur la rivière Eaton. À son décès, en 1832, son fils aîné, William, reprend les moulins bien qu’il n’ait que 17 ans. En 1838, les jeunes frères de William, Leonard et Lyman, travaillent aux moulins. Dans les années 1840, Lyman a quitté les moulins pour travailler au Fuller General Store à Lennoxville, en raison de sa santé fragile due à une maladie pulmonaire, et vit à certaines périodes aux États-Unis. Les descendants de William Hunting fils ont exploité le moulin à bois et le moulin à blé jusqu’à 1960, alors qu’un incendie a détruit les deux édifices. En 1961, une usine de rabotage a été construite et exploitée par Hunting, avant d’être fermée définitivement, mais l’édifice est toujours là, au bord de la rivière Ascot, à Huntingville.
