In this, whichis called "Battle Abbey," there were deposited the names of all thenobles and barons, as they were called, who came with William fromNormandy. Among these names is that of Hamound, afterwards writtenHammond.The name of Hammond may arise from one of three sources, viz: 1.Hammonet, a town or house, or an elevation; 2. Hamon, faithful; 3. St.Armand, in regard to which Burke's Landed Gentry, Vol. I., says, "Thefamily of Hammond is of considerable antiquity in England, and isprobable may have derived its origin from a branch of the Norman HouseSt. Armand."In any rate the Hammonds have been in England for may centuries, andthere were and are in that country many eminent families bearing thename.A family of special interest to us is that of William Hammond of London,Co.

Elizabeth, aged 47 years, with children Elizabeth, aged 15, Sarah, aged 10 and John, aged 7 years embarked at Ipswich, England, in the ship, “Francis,” John Cutting, Master, in April, 1634, and joined her husband in New England.

William was the only surviving son of Thomas Hammond and Rose Trippe, his younger brother, Thomas, having died in infancy. He was left an orphan by the death of his father in 1589.
William Hammond was admitted freeman in Watertown, May 25, 1636, and was grantee of seven lots and purchaser of three lots before 1644. His homestead of 40 acres was situated on the west of Common Street. It was bounded on the east and north by lands of his brother-in-law, Dr. Simon Eire, on the west by John Simson, Isaac Sterne and John Warren, and on the south by Thomas Boyden. Bond’s Hist. of Watertown (p. 1088) says,
“It is probable that William Hammond settled first on the Cambridge Road, very near the Cambridge line. Whether this was a grant to him the records do not show. He sold it early and settled on his 40-acre homestall, situated east of Pequusset meadow. He also owned three small lots in Pequusset meadow, one of these granted to him and the other two purchased. This homestall passed to his son (grandson) Thomas.”
March 10, 1642, in the division of lands, he was granted lot No. 76, in the 4th Division, containing 165 acres, and this, with his other holdings, made him one of the largest land owners in the town.
The records do not show that he was often an office holder in the town and this may have been due to his independence in religious matters, which may have made him unpopular with his more puritanical neighbors, although he does not appear to have been so unpopular as some of his most intimate friends. His near neighbor and most intimate friend appears to have been John Warren, who came from the same locality in Suffolk County, England, and between whose family and his own there appears to have been considerable intimacy for several generations prior to the settlement in America.
On occasion there were fines “for an offense against the laws concerning baptism,” and “for neglect of publick worship” 14 Sabbaths at 5 shillings each. Warnings were given “for not attending publick worship”.
May 27, 1661, the houses of “old Warren and goodman Hammond” were ordered to be searched for Quakers, for whom they were known to have considerable sympathy. Considerable independence in religious matters, great love of liberty and sympathy for all who are persecuted for conscience sake seem to have been inherent family traits for generations past. It is probable that William Hammond and his intimate friend, Warren, were both inclined toward the religious teaching of Roger Williams, but were too conservative to subject themselves to the persecution that his more radical followers were compelled to endure. This view is supported by the fact that many of their descendants were rigid adherents of the Baptist Church. The tendency, however, in this family has been toward great liberty of thought in religious matters and many of the descendants have been connected with the Unitarian and Universalist denominations, while many in the later generations have held membership in no church.
The will of William Hammond is on file at East Cambridge, Mass., (Middlesex Probate No. 7167), dated July 1662; proved Dec. 16, 1672.

WILLIAM HAMMOND – ELIZABETH PAINE
(1575-1662) (1586-1676)
William, the emigrant ancestor of this branch of the family in America, was born in Lavenham, County of Suffolk, England, where he was baptized October 30, 1575. He was the only surviving son of Thomas Hammond and Rose Trippe, his younger brother, Thomas, having died in infancy. He was left an orphan by the death of his father in 1589. He married Elizabeth there June 9, 1605 and their children were all born in Lavenham. Elizabeth was born 1586, also in Lavenham, daughter of William Paine.
William, along with his older children, came to America before his wife and younger children, though the exact year is not known.

On 10 November 1633 "Rose Steward of the County of Suff[olk] widow" made her will, but it was not probated until 27 June 1649 [Archdeaconry of Sudbury Wills, 247 Ashton]. Among her many bequests were the following: to "my wellbeloved daughter Elizabeth Livermore in the county of Essex widow"; to "Matthie Livermore my beloved grandchild daughter of the said Elizabeth"; to "William Hammond the younger the son of William Hammond my son"; to "Elizabeth Hamond daughter of the said William Hamond my son my beloved grandchild"; to "Hanna Hammond another daughter of my son William Hamonde my beloved grandchild"; to "Thomas Hammond another child of my son Hamond's"; to "Sarah Hammond another daughter of my son Hammond's"; to "John Hammond another of my son Hammond's children"; to "Daniell Livermore my well beloved grandchild & the son of my daughter Elizabeth"; to "John Livermore her son"; and to "Sara her daughter." She also made a bequest to the poor of Lavenham, and asked to be buried in Lavenham churchyard. There is no apparent connection between the widow Hammond of Lynn and the Hammonds of Watertown.COMMENTS: The Hammond family came to New England in at least three stages. In late 1630 or early 1631 John Winthrop Jr. noted receipt of £7 5s. from "Goody Hammond to send her husband" [WP 3:6]. This supports the conclusion that William Hammond was a passenger on the Lyon when it sailed from Bristol in late 1631. On 26 September 1633 Governor John Winthrop wrote to Sir Simonds D'Ewes, informing him that "Yours by young Hamond I received," indicating that William Hammond Jr. probably sailed for New England in one of the ships that arrived in the fall of 1633 [WP 3:139]. His sister Anne and brother Thomas may also have come at this time, for they are not included a year later in the passenger list of the Francis, which sailed from Ipswich in the spring of 1634 with Elizabeth Hammond (aged 47), Elizabeth Hammond (aged 15), Sarah Hammond (aged 10) and John Hammond (aged 7) on board [Hotten 279]. On 6 November 1660 Watertown selectmen sent the constables to "Old Hamond to let him know, that contrary to order of town, he had entertained into his family such a person as is likely to prove chargeable, do therefore desire him to rid the town of such an encumbrance or otherwise to bear the burden thereof himself" [WaTR 1:66]. In his record of admissions to Scituate church Rev. John Lathrop entered on 14 April 1636 "Elizabeth Hammon my sister having a dismission from the church at Watertown" [NEHGR 9:280]; Lothrop's first wife, Hannah House, was sister of Samuel House; since Lothrop refers to her by maiden name but also calls her sister, the admission to Scituate church may have taken place after the contract of marriage, but before the marriage itself (note, however, that the first child of the couple was baptized on 23 October 1636 [NEHGR 9:281]) [NEHGR 66:356-59]. Various sources give John Lothrop of Scituate a second wife who was a Hammond; this is based on a false deduction from the entry discussed above.

Information from a 1656 law suit against William Hammond, citing this occurance. This would place him on the "Lyon" which sailed from Bristol on 1 Dec 1630/1631, and arriving in New England the following February. Emigration: 1631. See above.The Hammond family came to New England in at least three stages. In late 1630 or early 1631, John Winthrop Jr. noted receipt of £7 5s. from "Goody Hammond to send her husband."

His sister Anne and brother Thomas may also have come at this time, because they are not included, a year later, in the passenger list of the "Francis", which sailed from Ipswich, in the spring of 1634, with Elizabeth Hammond, (aged 47); Elizabeth Hammond, (aged 15); Sarah Hammond, (aged 10); and John Hammond, (aged 7) on board.First Residence: William's first residence was Watertown, Massachusetts.Occupation: Husbandman.Religion: Admitted to Watertown Church prior to 25 May 1636, (implied by freemanship.)1636: Admitted as a Freeman, 25 May 1636.1636: In his record of admissions to Scituate Church, Rev.
