From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Herbert Huntington (July 27, 1799 – September 13, 1851) was a farmer, merchant and politician in Nova Scotia. He represented Shelburne County from 1830 to 1836 and Yarmouth County from 1836 to 1850 in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly.

He was born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, the son of Miner Huntington and Martha Walker. He served with the militia during the War of 1812 and taught school for a time. He also served as a land surveyor like his father. In 1830, Huntington married Rebecca Russell (née Pinkney). He served as a member of the province's Executive Council for a short time in 1838. In 1848, he was named a minister without portfolio and later financial secretary for the province. Huntingdon resigned his seat in the assembly at the end of 1850 due to poor health. He died in Yarmouth nine months later at the age of 52.
