Hungerford family crests. French windows each floor, upper wrought

Cadenham was a major estate of the Hungerford family from C15 to
1712. Bought by Edward Hungerford in 1468, John Evelyn stayed
there in 1654 but John Aubrey describes it as ruinous in 1670s.
Crests on porch relate to Sir George Hungerford, died 1712, who
probably built the present house.
