    "The first of this family was " Sir " Peter Gunter, or Gaunt d'or, an assistant of Newmarch's in the reduction of Brycheiniog. He was given a manor at «i»Tregunter, «/i»otherwise called Gunterstone— a place long ago alienated from the powerful family which indelibly inscribed their name upon it,— which his descendants possessed for six or seven generations, until they removed to Gilston, in the parish of Llanfigan, perhaps under stress of weather, or, more probably, esteeming the Vale of Usk more desirable than the colder neighbourhood of Talgarth.

The intermarriages of the Gunters were chiefly with the families which, like themselves, were of foreign origin, such as Pitcher, Skull, Walbeoffe, Mowbray, Boys, Pierrepoint, Havard. By the marriage of Walter of Tregunter into the family of Pierrepoint of Gilston, the Gilston property seems to have first come into their possession. They are from this time called " of Gilston."

    The Gunters spread widely and had many estates in the county.

    «b»Tregunter«/b», an old seat of the Gunters, from whom it derives its name, was originally bestowed by Bernard Newmarch upon Sir Peter Gunter or Gaunt d'or, in reward for his services in the reduction of Brycheiniog, and continued in that family for many years.
