Reference "Hungerfords Down Under, The Hungerford Family in Australia and New Zealand, 1828-2001," by Peter Sherlock, March, 2001, page 110.It reports: John Hungerford, born about 1816.He is almost certainly the John Hungerford who married Jane unknown, and with his wife and four children and two other Hungerfords named Jonathan and James, emigrated to the United States of America, arriving in New York aboard the 'Coolock,' 20 May 1847.Nothing more is known of this family.(Note that a Mary Hungerford, aged 20, also arrived in New York from Ireland aboard the 'Columbia,' 31 Jul 1846.)
Peter is an Australian Hungerford family historian.Your message and his "connected the dots" for me.John Richard Hungerford's pedigree, per Peter Sherlock, is: John Richard is the son of Ryder & Margaret (Finlay) Hungerford; Ryder is the son of John & ____ Hungerford; John is the son of Rev. Emanuel Hungerford & his 2nd (unknown) wife; the Rev. is the son of Col. Richard & Mary (Moore) Hungerford; the Colonel is the son of Capt. Thomas & Mary () Hungerford--the first Irish Hungerford.Peter has written in the Hungerford and Associated Families Journal a theory that Thomas is the son of Falke & Ivy (Avis) Hungerford.(See Hungerford & Associated Families Society Journals Vol. 2, No. 3, May 1994, pages 22-30, the article entitled "Thomas Hungerford of Rathbarry" and Vol. 5, No. 2, Nov 1999, pages 31-35, the article entitled "Captain Thomas of Rathbarry Revisited.")
The pedigree from Falke--he is the son of Anthony & Israel (Goddard) Hungerford; Anthony is the son of Thomas & Edith (Strange) Hungerford; Thomas is the son of Sir Anthony & Dorothy (Danvers) Hungerford; Sir Anthony is the son of Sir John & Margaret (Blount) Hungerford; Sir John was the son of Sir Thomas (1444-31 Oct 1494) and Christina (Halle) Hungerford.From this point it should be easy to trace the pedigree back to the early Hungerfords.
