Joan Nichols wrote from Australia in 1992 saying that she was a descendent of David and Maria Faulknor who set up a drapers business in the High Street, Hungerford in 1823.In 1868 David and his two sons were running a ropemaking business in Church Street and by 1884 his son William was running a pork butcher's shop in Bridge Street. William died 16 Mar 1901 and is buried in the same grave as his brother Arthur (who died 3 Mar 1924) in Inkpwn cemetry.
David was a nephew of Joseph Faulknor (died 6 Jan 1831) after whom Faulknor Square was named.
Mr Faulknor was an auctioneer in Hungerford in the early 19th century. His name appears in many notices of auction sales at the time.
A notice of sale in the Reading Mercury of Mon 28 Sep 1829 says that the sale will be arranged by Mr John Dredge "successor to Mr Faulknor".
In March 1829 auctions were advertised by "Faulknor and son".
Another member of the family, Thomas Faulknor, married Charlotte Talbot on 20 May 1833. They had four children, all Christened at St Lawrence's Church - Emma (b. 12 Oct 1834); John and William (b. 3 Jun 1838); Eliza (b. 7 Jun 1840).
