Hungerford Deeds from the Hastings Manuscripts held in the Huntington Library U.S.A:

Transcribed by Norman Hidden, 2007.

Note on the role of The Historical Manuscript Commission and the Hastings Manuscripts:

The Historical Manuscript Commission was set up in the nineteenth century to locate and make accessible to researchers, records in the private ownership of persons, families, libraries etc. Records were inspected with the owner's permission and reports on them have been published (the number of volumes now running into the hundreds) in the form of calendars, lists and edited texts. The offices of the Commission are housed in Quality House, Chancery Lane, London.

The Hastings family were connected through marriage with the Hungerford family. Their records are housed in the Huntington Library in the U.S.A. who provided for us a microfilm of those documents which have reference to the town of Hungerford.

This file consists of all the entries relating to "the viII of Hungerford" included in the H.M.C.'s Report (pages 259-263, Hastings Mss vol.l), and a transcript of the microfilm contents which were not included in the Report. The latter, as with all transcriptions of original documents, may contain errors of interpretation of language and handwriting. Anyone using the information presented here, should bear this in mind.

The deeds date from a period between c1273 and c1469.

The Hastings Manuscripts:

A report on these was presented by the Historical Manuscripts Commission [in 1928?]. Over 1300 documents were described which record the transactions ofland which at some date became acquired as the property of the Hastings family. William Hastings, created Baron Hastings in 1461, was a Yorkist supporter who benefited from his service to Edward IV (see Patent Rolls throughout this period), but on his royal master's death in 1483 was beheaded. Edward, second Lord Hastings, (see Complete Peerage VI, 374) had special livery of his father's lands in 1488. He had married (pre-1481) Mary Hungerford, Baroness Botreaux, and when the attainder of her grandfather (Robert? de Hungerford) was reversed in 1485 she became Baroness Hungerford and de Moleyns. The interest of the American Henry E. Huntington arose from the fact that George third Baron Hastings in 1529 became Earl of Huntingdon. In 1928 the Mss still held in England by the Hastings family, were owned by Mrs Abney Hastings (later countess of Loudoun) and were subsequently acquired by the Henry E. Huntington Library, USA.

Some 36 documents relate to property in Hungerford, Berkshire; and for 20 of these the Historical Mss Commission report gives brief abstracts; the remainder are listed. It is also notable that some Mss held by the Huntington Library are not among the Historical Mss Commission Report at all.
