Hungerford Family Part 1

First of all its been way too long since I've posted and I definitely could have over spring break but that wasn't one of my priorities. But now I have an annoying assignment and this is the perfect opportunity to procrastinate a little.

Last time I introduced the Hungerfords a little bit. I still don't know who married who but that's ok. Either Fabyan or Thomas Farley married the Jane Hungerford I'm talking about.

To give you some perspective, Jane is my 12th GGrandmother

Jane Hungerford- born around 1578 ish. parents were Sir Anthony Hungerford and Bridget Shelley.

Sir Anthony Hungerford... thats pretty cool.... "sir"
I did a quick google search of the name and a million things popped up but it was for a different Anthony Hungerford.... yay for repeating names again! the one site where I found the right one had "(sir knight)" at the end of his name.

So now I have English Knights in my family... and hello I love the movie "A Knights Tale" and all of that medieval fair stuff. But I digress....

Anthony Hungerford "Sir Knight" 1540-1594
Parents: John Hungerford "Sir Knight" and Bridget Fettiplace.
-- Fettiplace is an interesting surname too. I'll get to that family in a later post I think... but for now a quick wikipedia segment...

Fettiplace is probably from old French "faites place" for 'make room', the shout given by the ushers/bodyguards/protectors of the French Kings and nobility. 
They are said to have arrived in England with William the Conqueror.. 

Hellooo awesomeness! Back to Hungerfords...

John was born around 1513. His parents were Anthony Hungerford b. 1494 (ah, theres a repeat...) and Jane Darrel b. 1490

Ok now we're into the 1400's. So over 500 years ago? Madness!

Next time I'll discuss Bridget Shelley's family and perhaps hit on Bridget Fettiplace's parents.

And if you think thats all I have... you are sadly mistaken. There is so much stuff.... its.... insane. just... insane.

Anyone interested on visiting the site where I found some info that goes along with my tree: http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/HUNGERFORD.htm#Anthony HUNGERFORD (Sir Knight)1

Later peeps!
