(An earlier Lord HUNGERFORD was one of the original signers of the Magna Carta.) In 1355, he became sheriff and escheator for Wiltshire. He also served as steward of the household of John of Gaunt and bailiff (Bishop's Bailiff of New Sarum) for the Bishop of Salisbury. Thomas bought the Farliegh Monford house in Somerset in 1369 and transformed it into Farleigh Hungerford Castle. He was knighted in 1377 and became speaker of the House of Commons, a position which he owed to his friend John of Gaunt (1st Duke of Lancaster, Duke of Aquitaine, a member of the House of Plantagenet, the third surviving son of King Edward III of England and Philippa of Hainault.) Thomas was the first person formally mentioned in the rolls of parliament as holding the office. He married (2nd?) in 1376 to Joan HUSSEY, with whom he had seven children. [19]
