This document is comprised of the cover page and the three pages of Hungerford entries in A Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland In Two Parts - Part I written by Sir Bernard Burke, Ulster King of Arms and author of the dictionaries of The Peerage and Baronetage, The Extinct and Dormant Peerage, etc. etc. The text in this document is slightly different than that of The Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland - Hungerford Excerpts Second. The latter document contains text not found in this document. Consequently, this document appears to be an earlier edition of The Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland.

The excerpts in this document commence with Thomas Hungerford, Esq. of Inchodony (IR40 in the Surnames Database), continues with Henry-Jones Hungerford, Esq., of Cahirmore (IR62 in the Surnames Database), and ends with Holdich Hungerford, Henry Hungerford, Esq. of Dingley Park (UNEN169 in the Surnames Database).

Holdich Hungerford, Henry Hungerford, Esq. of Dingley Park was born Henry Holdich but subsequently, upon the attainment of age 21, adopted the name Henry Hungerford. With respect to him, this document reports:
