Richard Hungerford was born 1776 as the only child of the Reverend Richard Hungerford (d1782) and his wife Mary Hungerford, and grandson both of Richard Hungerford of Foxhall & The Island by his second marriage to his cousin Mary Hungerford, and of Thomas Hungerford of Cahirmore by his wife Sarah Boisseau. He was thereby descended from Captain Thomas Hungerford of Rathbarry in no less than three ways, and was half-cousin of Captain Emanuel Hungerford. He married Isabella Masters, 11 June 1793, Co Cork, Ireland. Richard was employed by the Excise Office in London. Several descendants emigrated to Australia, New Zealand and England.
