Welcome to The Hungerford Family Foundation, Inc. (THFFI), the home of the Hungerford World Tree comprising more than one hundred thousand (100,000) individuals who lived (or are living) throughout the world including England, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. 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 individual profile. Go to Site Statistics for a list showing the exact number of Hungerford descendants, companies, etc. in this site.
The Hungerford World Tree is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies as a one-name study for the Hungerford surname, including their variants (a variation in the spelling such as Hungerville and Hungiville) as well as deviants (mistranscribed or written down incorrectly).
