General Robert Hunter (1664 – 1734) was colonial governor of New York and New Jersey from 1710 to 1720. A Scott, Hunter had been apprenticed to an apothecary before running away to join the British Army. He became an officer, married a woman of high rank. He was a man of business whose first address to the Assembly was barely 300 words long. In it, he told that "If honesty is the best policy, plainness must be the best oratory". Hunter was replaced by Peter Schuyler as acting governor from 1719 to 1720 and finally by William Burnet. Hunter was Lieutenant Governor of Virginia Colony and later Governor of New Jersey and Jamaica.
