Given the rarity of the Huntriss name, it is a little surprising that it makes its appearance in a number of books..
A mouse is born
Anita Loos was an acclaimed American screenwriter, playwright and author, whose best known work was “Gentlemen prefer Blondes”.
She wrote “A Mouse is born” in 1951, an autobiography of Effie Huntriss, a fictional Hollywood starlet.
Hurry the Darkness
A novel, set in the north of England, in which (Rose)Bud Huntriss is one of the characters.
Whilst all the characters are fictional, the author worked in the Halifax area, which could suggest that he was aware of the Huntriss family name. William Huntriss was a mill owner in Halifax.
A Farrago of Lies
An Australian novel in which Myra Huntriss is an Estate Agent
Death of an Aloe Seed
This second chronicle of the doings of the vicar of Sherburn (in which Joseph Huntriss makes a brief but telling appearance) draws the reader cosily into eighteenth-century village life where medicine is primitive, travel arduous and time-consuming, curses feared and officers of the law less than eager to pursue their functions.
