    • Will of Sir Walter Hungerford or Hungerforde 11 January 1597 PROB 11/89
      In 1554 he married his first wife, Anne Bassett, maid of honour to Queen Mary. Anne Bassett died in 1557. In 1558 he married Anne Dormer daughter of Sir William Dormer of Ascot, by whom he had four children - a son, Edmund (d. 1587), and three daughters. In 1570 his second wife was charged with trying to poison him some years previously - something his mother had accused his father of doing to her. She was also charged with committing adultery between 1560 and 1568 with William Darrell of Littlecote.[1]
      Lady Hungerford was acquitted, and Lord Hungerford, refusing to pay the heavy costs, was committed to the Fleet Prison. She soon wanted protection for her children from her husband's endeavours to disinherit them. He left his property to his brother Sir Edward Hungerford, with remainder to his male heirs by a mistress, Margery Brighte, with whom he went through the ceremony of marriage in the last year of his life, although Lady Hungerford was still alive. After his death Lady Hungerford recovered "reasonable dower" from her brother-in-law, Sir Edward, and died at Louvain in 1603.

      Is this Walter the grandson of Anne Danvers??
