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”.

"Hear some of the chief things in the history of those men of this "great race and noble house "of Hungerford who in the direct line preceded Sir Anthony; in order that they may keep company in your mind with those other magnificent English families of whom I have written something heretofore: the Fettiplaces, the Besils, the Untons and the rest. The earliest known of their name is Everard de Hungerford, who was alive in 1160 and afterwards there lived a Walter, who married into the Heytesbury estates..."
