Subject: Re: HUNGERFORD family
There was a private printing (100 copies) of 'Hungerfordiana' by Sir Colt Hoare, Bt., Shaftsbury dated 1st January 1823. Our public library has an original copy. There are 149 pages including index, together with a fine etching of the Gatehouse to Down Ampney.
Containing pedigrees and texts on various branches of the family, it names Everard de Hungerford 1160 and William de Hungerford, Abbott of Waverley 1276 as the earliest members found. Descent is given from Walter de Hungerford who was married to Maud of Heytesbury through their son Walter 1308.
Although Marshall (Genealogist's Guide) lists a number of authorities, this book is listed first.
