This may be of absolutely no relevance or interest, but it turns out 
there really IS a Hunsdon House. In Hertfordshire.  It was given to 
one Henry Carey (son of Anne Boleyn's sister) when a Lordship was set 
up by Elizabeth.  Lord Hunsdon seems to have been the founder of the 
Lord Chamberlain's Players, no less.

The house was also for sale, at least a year or so ago.  :)  (Nice 
looking house, but I wouldn't recommend anyone buy it, myself.)

Oh, and Hunsdon House is also the name of an old English folk dance. 
Which may be as useful...
