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”.

  • Hungerfordiana: or Memoirs of the family of Hungerford, Author: Richard Colt Hoare, Sir

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.

The descent from Everard through to Walter is apparently not given in the referenced book
