Aaron Huntley was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on April 15, 1654. He married at Lyme, Connecticut, on February 22, 1676, to Mary Champion of Saybrook, Connecticut, daughter of Henry Champion.

Aaron was baptized in the First Church of Roxbury, Massachusetts, on October 27, 1657, and served in King Philip's War, for which he was given "one whole soldier's right [Cedar Swamp Lot No. 50] in the Town of Voluntown, Conn. which he sold to Joseph Lathrop of Norwich, Conn. for £8 on Nov. 5, 1716. [Voluntown Deed Bk 1]". 
Aaron continued to live upon the "home lott", which he inherited from his father, until 1723 when he deeded the property to his son, David. [Lyme, Conn. 4:119]. David's son, David Huntley, Jr., sold the estate and the mansion house for £400 to Lewis DeWolf on July 17, 1739. Aaron's Will, which was written in Lyme on January 25, 1741, is provided in the book, "John Huntley, immigrant of Boston & Roxbury, Massachusetts and Lyme, Connecticut, 1647-1977, and some of his descendants", by Virgil W. Huntley, 1978. A wealth of information about the family is preserved, thanks to years of research by Virgil Huntley.
