 The following is from Abstracts of Wiltshire Inquisitions Post Mortem returned in the court of chancery in the reign of King Charles I.

I assume Broadtowne is Broad Town which was in Clyffe Pypard parish but now a parish in it's own right.



 Inquisition taken at Devizes, 27th July, 12 Charles I (1656), before Hugh White, esq, escheator, after the death of John Hungerford, esq, by the oath of William Norden, gent, Samuel White, Richard Filkes, John Stevens, Thomas Sloper, John Purnell, John Thorner, John Harves, Edward Fowle, Benedict Hancock, Giles Mills, Robert Kingsman and Henry Bould, who say that

John Hungerford was seised of the manors of Cadman Studley alias Studley Hungerford and Dorneford Magna alias Dorneford Hungerford, with all their rights, members and appurtenances in Cadnam, Bremble, Studley, Calne and Dorneford; 10 acres 3 roods of land, one acre of meadow, and 2 acres of p-asture in Broadtowne, in the possession of Richard Spackman for his life...............
