In the book "Early Manor and Plantation Houses of Maryland" by H. Chandlee Forman, 1934 is the following:In the section on Charles County "Society Hill, built in early 18th century."This Hungerford aerie surmounts the crest of a hill above the Wicomico River in lower Charles County."
"William H. Hungerford I was the founder of the family of this name in Maryland.He was born in England and settled in Charles County in 1646.His son, William II, married Margaret Barton in 1686, and their son Barton Hungerford married Elizabeth Guinn.Barton's grandson, called Thomas Hungerford, husband of Violetta Guinn, was the owner of Society Hill."
(There are two photographs of the house, one of the back, showing the river, and one from the front.There is also a floor plan. There were no other listings for this family in the index.)
I live in Montgomery County, Maryland and we have several references to the name Hungerford.One of the original names for the county seat (Rockville) was Hungerford's Tavern.This was the name of a tavern near what is now the courthouse.I believe there is also a DAR Chapter named Hungerford Resolves which I think has to do with a document signed at the tavern.(I'm writing this from memory and am not sure of these facts.)We still have at least one family by this name in Montgomery County.
