Welcome to The Hungerford Family Foundation, Inc. (THFFI), the home of the Hungerford World Tree comprising tens of thousands of individuals who lived (or are living) in England, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and more. Go to the Surnames Index for a complete list of all surnames in the site, where each surname is linked to a list of all individual persons in the Surnames Database with that surname, each of which is linked to that person's profile. Go to Site Statistics for a list showing the exact number of Hungerford descendants, companies, etc. in this site.
We aspire to include in our database every person who either is or has been descended from a Hungerford regardless of surname. You might even be surprised to find your own name in the database.
Each vital statistic in every profile is fully-documented in the notes of each person's profile. Those notes also provide a rich source of information about erroneous information — simple mistakes as well as errors arising from either mistaken inferences or incomplete research — our expectation being that we will help everyone interested in their Hungerford ancestry avoid repeating those "myths."
As a Member, you will be able to add people to, and edit information in, our Hungerford World Tree. If you are not a member, we have made it easy and inexpensive to join, so consider registering as a Member today.
In addition to the resources available to you on this site, you may want to visit two other websistes:
The Hungerford and Associated Families Society website for more Hungerford-related resources devoted primarily to Hungerfords in Australia.
The Hungerford Virtual Museum for stories behind the people, places, and events of the Hungerford, England area.
Our database is the largest single source of information about Hungerford and associated family surnames to be found anywhere in the world. Search it for your name and those of your ancestors. Add missing names, edit their profiles, and add photos. Follow the links back to your earliest Hungerford ancestors.
