Searching for ancestors of John, Edward HUNTER (1793 - 1850)


I'm searching for ancestors of "John, Edward HUNTER" (1793 - 1852)

My name is Frank Laherstorfer and I live in Tahiti (French Polynesia). My wife's name is Muriel, Miriama HUNTER and she is a descenent of John E. HUNTER. I'm building the family tree and I could trace the family back to this John Edward HUNTER.
Here is what I know about him:

Born about 1793 in Yorkshire (UK) he was a sailor and came to Australia and married a "Suzannah FLANAGAN-CHAPMAN" on February 10th 1817 in Sydney (AUSTRALIA). They had 12 children and some of them came to French Polynesia and started the HUNTER branch here. As far as I know, John Edward HUNTER was lost on sea about 1852. I have the whole family tree (1.400 entries so far) of the descendents of John Edward HUNTER here in Tahiti, but I'd like to learn more about the ancestors.
If anybody could help me I'd be pleased to exchange our informations about the HUNTER family.

Kind Regards

Franz Laherstorfer
