Specific lineages in this family have been treated many times, notably by
John J. Currier,
Henry Lunt and Some of His Descendants, History of Newburyport, Mass., 17641909, 2 vols. (Newburyport, Mass: author, 19069), 2:503-61, and by
Walter Goodwin Davis, The Ancestry of Abel Lunt, 17691806, of Newbury, Massachusetts (Portland, Me.: Anthoensen Press, 1963), 3-41.
Davis, in particular, provides perhaps the finest introduction to the first four generations of the surname in America, and also speculates on a possible English origin.
