Going by the usual sources
we see over and over that somebody named Margaret Hungerford was the wife of that Robert Sutton, 2nd Lord Lexinton of Aram (not LexINGton as ODNB .... )
Robert has dates 1662-1723
Poor Margaret when she is mentioned at ALL is given only the sketchiest data.
I shall now correct that, giving her a pedigree that thinly stretches back four generations, and a slew of cousins to look into.
I still however do not know exactly how her father Giles fits into the other Hungerfords. (Be careful as there as about six Giles Hungerfords runnning about).
