Anyone interested in the Hunt Family of Holloway Fields?

+2 votes
Looking to see if anyone has information on the Hunt family (circa 15-16th century) of Holloway Fields/Grange in Hanbury parish for my research. I am particularly interested in the lives of John Hunt and his children. It appears these Hunts were yeomans but I cannot quite pinpoint why there are so many connections to aristocracy via marriage and other documentation. John's son, Henry Hunt, was a descendant on King Henry II via his mother, Agnes Morgan.

There is also a connection to the Montfort family via Agnes who were quite prominent at the time and interconnected with aristocracy. In addition, a connection via marriage to the Savage family. A possible connection to Le Hunt family as John's father.

Any information would be greatly appreciated as I am at a standstill here! Happy to assist on your projects along similar lines as I've done quite a bit of research on the same.

Greetings, Mr. Hunt. My name is Bernard Hunt. I was born in London about a million years ago, but I've wandered the world as an itinerant journalist, and have been riding a retirement rocking chair into the Nevada sunset for more years than I care to mention. Like you, I have been busy disintering up dead Hunt relatives. My family stems from the village of East Hendred, Berkshire, in the Vale of White Horse, I have researched Hunts in the village since the early 1600s as a line of recusant Catholics in those turbulent times. I have reason to believe that the earliest ancestor in the village that I can find came there from somewhere else. But where? That is the question. I would love to liaise with you on possible links. My email is

 I hope to hear from you. Perhaps we shall find a cousinage,
