  • Mary Hungerford (c.1468 – before 10 July 1533) was the daughter of Sir Thomas Hungerford and Anne, daughter of Henry Percy, 3rd Earl of Northumberland.
  • .... Mary was the great-granddaughter of Sir William Moleyns, slain at the siege of Orleans on 8 May 1429, who married, on 1 May 1423, as his second wife, Anne Whalesborough (died c. 1487), the daughter and co-heir of John Whalesborough, esquire, of Whalesborough, Cornwall, by Joan, daughter of Sir John Raleigh. By Anne Whalesborough Sir William Moleyns had two daughters, Eleanor (died c. 1492) and Frideswide. Eleanor's marriage was granted to Thomas Chaucer, esquire, and before 5 November 1440 she married Robert Hungerford, 3rd Baron Hungerford, who was beheaded on 15 May 1464 after the Battle of Hexham. ....

  • MOLEYNS, Sir William (1378-1425), of Stoke Poges, Bucks.
  • Family and Education
  • b. London 7 Jan. 1378, s. and h. of Sir Richard Moleyns of Stoke Poges. m. by Mich. 1401, Margery (d. 26 Mar. 1439), 1s. 1da.1 Kntd. 8 Apr. 1413.
  • .... One of his mainpernors at the elections at Wilton, and a colleague in the Commons as a representative for Buckinghamshire, was Richard Wyot (probably the brother of Moleyns’s favoured retainer), who was himself then acting as steward of the estates of Bishop Beaufort of Winchester. Wyot was an associate of the bishop’s cousin, Thomas Chaucer*, with whom Moleyns, too, was also connected, for Chaucer’s wife, Maud, was a kinswoman of his. Indeed, the families drew closer in time, for Moleyns’s only son, William, was later to be married at Ewelme, Chaucer’s seat, to one of the daughters of Maud’s half-sister, Joan, daughter of Sir John Raleigh† of Nettlecombe, and wife of John Whalesborough*. Furthermore, his grand daughter was to have as one of her godmothers Chaucer’s daughter, Alice, countess of Salisbury. Another of Moleyns’s associates was Richard, Lord Strange of Knockin, for whom, in May 1417, he stood bail for his release from the Tower. Moleyns attended the Buckinghamshire elections to Parliament in 1419 and 1422.5
  • Sir William died on 8 June 1425 and was buried at Stoke Poges. His son attained his majority in 1427 but was killed at the siege of Orleans two years later, leaving as the heir to the Moleyns estates his daughter, Eleanor. She subsequently married Robert Hungerford (grandson and eventual heir of Sir Walter (now Lord) Hungerford*), who was summoned to Parliament in 1445 as Lord Moleyns.6
