Robert Hunter's birthdate is variously listed as "1664" in Wikipedia, and "abt. 1675" in a familysearch submission. It appears more likely to be former, based upon several published sources, including "A Life of Robert Hunter, 1666-1734", by James E. Scalon. More research may be necessary to determine his accurate birthdate.
