William HAMMOND

  • Born: 30 Oct 1575, Lavenham, Co. Suffolk, England
  • Baptized: 30 Oct 1575, Lavenham, Co. Suffolk, England 2
  • Married: 9 Jun 1605, Lavenham, Co. Suffolk, England 1
  • Died: 8 Oct 1662, Watertown, Middlesex Co., MA 3

   General Notes:

William was the emigrant ancestor of this branch of the family in America. He was the only surviving son of Thomas and Rose (Trippe) Hammond, his younger brother, Thomas, having died in infancy. He was left an orphan by the death of his father in 1589 and very little can be learned about his early life. It is uncertain just when he came to America, as no record has been found.

The first positive records of this William Hammond are to be found in Scituate, Mass., prior to 1636, the name being found there as "Hamans." Deane's History of Scituate, p. 277, says "he soon deceased or removed" from there and it was undoubtedly at about this time (1636) that he became a settler in Watertown, as no record of an earlier date has been found of him there.
