Volume 6, pages 620, 621:
[Eleanor, daughter and heir of Sir William de Moleyns, and wife of Robert (Hungerford), Lord Hungerford (he was executed 1464)] After Lord Hungerford's death she m., perhaps in or about 24 Mar. 1468/9, Sir Oliver MANYNGHAM, and is said to have d. in 1476. Sir Oliver d. in 1499.
Page 621, note a:
Lipscomb, Bucks, vol. iv, p. 547. She was bur. in Stoke Pogis church (M.I. reciting her two marriages), as were her grandfather and grandmother, Sir William Moleyns (d. 1425) and his wife Margery.

The date given for her death must be incorrect, as on 2 May 1489 she received a commission to administer her mother's goods [Douglas Richardson, January 2003, citing Register of John Morton, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1486-1500, vol. 1 (Canterbury and York Society, vol.75, p. 107]. But from the details given, she seems to have died before the date of her husband's will, 16 May 1499.

Volume 6, page 621, note g (continuation on page 622):
She [Anne, widow of Sir Thomas Hungerford (d. 1469)] is stated to have m., thirdly, Sir Hugh Vaughan, to have d. 5 July, and to have been bur. 9 July 1522 at St Margaret's, Westminster.

Douglas Richardson, in August 2002, produced evidence for this third marriage, in the form of a chancery suit brought against Hugh "Wagham", knight, mentioning his wife, Lady Hungerford [citing P.R.O. C1/510/20].
