1186 (approx) Walter de Hungerford m Maude de Heytesbury.

"The Hungerford family was living in the town after which they were named as early as 1160, when there is mention of Everard de Hungerford. (There is no record of his birth date).

A Walter de Hungerford was Baron Hopgrass, the local estate which still retains the name today.

However, by the late 13th century they were more associated with the adjoining county of Wiltshire, where Walter Hungerford (1230-c1308) married Maud Heytersbury, the heiress of the Heytersbury estates near Warminster".

Page 331. Reference to R.C. Hoare’s Hungerfordiana “We hear of an Everard de Hungerford, in 1160, and of a William de Hungerford, Abbot of Waverley, who died in 1276, but I cannot trace the descent of this family for a certainty till the time of Walter de Hungerford who married Maud, daughter of John de Hetesbury; and thereby became settled at Heytesbury, in Wiltshire. Here then I must commence my account of this family, so distinguished in after-times, and so fortunate in its intermarriages with many heiresses”.
