Much has been written both about and by Ron Prentice. He led an extraordinary life and had a passion for all things “Hungerford”, leading to the founding of The Hungerford & Associated Families Society.
Ron Prentice was the driving force behind the foundation of HAFS. In September 1990, he gathered together about 20 descendants and researchers of the Hungerford family at his home in Mosman, leading to the creation of the Society.
