Sir Edmund HUNGERFORD married Margaret BURNELL before 8 November 1416. They lived at Down Ampney, a village in Gloucestershire. There is a 1442 letter written to Edmund:
"My right trusty and right entirely well beloved master, I recommend me unto you... this day I overtook my Lord your father at Devise, who is in good health (blessed be our Saviour!) and sends you his blessings...(he) told me that on Monday last past, my Lord of Salisbury and he and my Lord Moleyns visited my Lady your wife...and they so tasted your wines at that time, that I trust to God, if ye have many such visitations, your wines shall neither sour, nor stand base, for default of such drinkers."
Margaret BURNELL's ancestors were from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine and Wales.

As you travel down the list of her ancestors, you'll run through a succession of knights, barons, earls, counts and dukes who lived in a time when those titles carried enormous authority and responsibility (such as having to go fight in the Crusades). You'll then continue into a series of princes, princesses, kings, emperors and saints that stretches back 1500 years.

She was my 17th great grandmother and a:



  • daughter of Sir Knight Edward BURNELL of Billinford (died of illness while campaigning in France in 1415) and Alienor Le STRANGE. Edward was the son of Sir Hugh BURNELL and Philippe DE LA POLE. Alienor [AKA Alice] was the daughter of Lord STRANGE of Knockin. Alienor (AKA Alice) died young. Sir Edwards's second wife was first cousin Elizabeth DE LA POLE. [18].


  • granddaughter of Sir Hugh BURNELL, 2nd Lord Burnell of Acton Burnell (died in 1420) and Philippe DE LA POLE. Hugh was the son of Nicholas BURNELL, 1st Lord Burnell, and an unknown Mary. Philippe was the daughter of Michael DE LA POLE, 1st Earl of Suffolk, and Katherine WINGFIELD. Hugh's holdings included the castles at Bridgnorth and Montgomery, in addition to Acton Burnell. He was one of the lords in attendance to formally witness the abdication of King Richard II at the Tower of London in 1399.  [19].
      [NOTE: Many medieval researchers and web sites, including some you have to pay to view, say that Philippe was the daughter of Michael, the 2nd Earl of Suffolk. However, this Michael was born about 1366 and married in 1383, and Philippe had her first daughter Joyce before 1391. Based on the evidence, the 2nd Earl was her brother, not her father. Were it true, however, the list below would gain at least thirty more kings, queens and princesses of England, France, Portugal and Spain.]
