You are in [People] [Stewards of the Manor]

The following is a very incomplete list of the Stewards of the Manor of Hungerford:

It would seem that Hungerford was considered of some importance to the Duchy from the fact that when the Manor came back into the possession of the Crown a special appointment of a Steward was made for the Manor, the previous arrangement being that a Steward acted for the Counties of Berkshire and Hampshire.

A board listing most of the Stewards from 1621 is displayed in the Town Hall.
