There are hundreds of books free online that may help in the ancestor hunt, with lists of Hunters, addresses and maybe more. Certainly if your family was "well off" they would be recorded someplace. University rolls, church lists, army lists, association members, trade associations and such.
If like myself, they were not so fortunate, there is still directories, printed every 10 years or so with names and sometimes addresses.
Let's say your "Peter Hunter" was a miner. Chances are he wouldn't have traveled far in his life, unless served in the Armed Forces or such, Let's say his son was Peter Johnstone Hunter, a "local" directory may have some of his family in the near area, or there may be a Johnstone family living nearby. If there is no leads through your Peter, there may be something to be found using the other angles of attack. Maybe e.g. Johnstone in the next street joined the church/army/navy and did well for himself, then maybe his family tree has been uncovered with a link to your guy.
I found an interesting photo online a couple of years ago (shown above left) but until last week couldn't accurately place the guy, I had my suspicions.
Last week I came across the Edinburgh Academy Register? never heard of it before. I downloaded it and copied all the Hunters and there was our Richard. Which gave me another piece to the jig-saw. Loads of information, shows how some Hunters met up, though most are related.
