In the 187-479, 14th Charles II, schedule of persons exempted from payment of hearth-tax, is the name of Richard Lunn for eight chimneys; but he is charged for eight hearths in Hearth-tax of Charles II.

A woman named Mary Lunn, together with another named Mary Allen, appear to have lived in Farnham about this time, and to have given great trouble to the parish authorities, for which they were eventually compelled to undergo penance. In the churchwardens' books of 1689 we find these entries:

"Paid at a Justice meeting about Mary Allen and Mary Lunn, 6s."
"Expended when we put up Allen and Lunn's daughter in the Spiritual Court, 1s. 6d."
"Expended on the Appariter twice about Lunn's and Allen's standing penance, and for letters and to Judd and his son, 10s."
"Payd a bill from Doctor's Commons for Mary Allen's and Mary Lunn's standing penance in the church, £5 12s. 8d."
