You are in [Themes] [Domesday Manors]

There is no single "manor of Hungerford". Indeed, there is no mention whatsoever of a single manor of Hungerford in the Domesday Survey of 1086.

The history is much more complicated! There were several ancient manors holding land in Hungerford - Inglefol (Hungerford Engleford), Charlton (Hopgrass and Charnham Street), Eddington, and Denford. Many more Domesday manors were nearby, including Leverton, Inkpen, Avington, Chilton Foliat, Shalbourne and the large manor of Kintbury.
