The Hammond Family of Angmering


The Subsidy Rolls of 1296 tell us that a Thomas Hamond resided in the area at that time and we know from other sources that Hammonds lived in neighbouring villages in the 16th Century and possibily before. We also know that a William Hamonde was rector of Bargham (in North Angmering) in 1478. However, it was not until the early 18th Century that we find that in 1732/3 an Edward Hammond was baptised in St Margaret's Church, Angmering, the son of Edward Hammond and his wife Ann (nee Tyndall).

The family were not known land owners and, indeed, they appear to have been of fairly humble origin. Pointers to this are lack of mention in Land Tax records, no surviving Wills, no inventories records, and no inter-marriage with known families of substance. Lack of wealth, however, should not prevent our research on a family that have lived in the village for nearly 300 years and have contributed in other ways. The Hammonds were to become the principal bricklaying family in the 19th Century.

We do not know exactly where branches of the family lived in the 18th Century but from the1836 Tithe Apportionments and 1851-1901 Census records, we know where many of them lived in the 19th Century. Initially, Hammonds lived in the High Street in cottages opposite the Roundstone Lane junction, but by 1861 some Hammond families were also living in Grove Cottages, Honey Lane, and later in Barrack Yard Cottages and Eagle Cottage. In 1898, two Hammond brothers were living in Gladstone Cottages, Water Lane and by the 20th Century, Hammonds resided in the High Street where the "Rose & Crown" cottages had once stood, and in The Cottrells.

While a high proportion of male Hammonds were associated with building, mid-19th Century records inform us that a few others were employed as labourers or agricultural labourers in common with a high proportion of Angmering residents of the time.

Other Information

The war memorial inscriptions on the website include James Hammond's name there. A local broadsheet, Scribble, also reported in 1917 - "Pte. Reginald Hammond, R. Warwicks Regt., Gladstone Cottages, has been wounded twice, and is now in Ireland" and "Pte. Walter J. Hammond, Cottrell Cottages, lost part of a leg in France. Now undergoing treatment in England". The paper also reported that some female and male Hammond's did quite well in sports events in the village's Peace Celebrations.

The West Sussex Gazette of 5 April 1860 reported "An accident of distressing nature...... .a lad. of about seven years of age named Hammond was at play with several other boys in a barn belonging to Mr E Elliott in which a new pulping machine had been lately placed . .. put his hand in one of the cogged wheels.., the parish surgeon deemed it expedient to amputate [a finger!... under chloroform]. .the child appears to be doing well".

Below is an outline genealogy tree of the Angmering Hammond family stemming from Edward Hammond (born circa 1710). The tree has been researched and assembled by Neil Rogers-Davis in August 2003 principally from parish registers and census records, but aditional material has been obtained from the International Genealogical Index, West Sussex Poor Law Records, Mr Robert Hammond, Mr Peter Enlund, Mr Richard Hammond, and Mrs Elizabeth Hammond (nee Coates). Always check individual certificates (issued by the General Register Office) and/or original parish records for accurate and definitive records.

The tree can be provided, on request, in either GEDCOM or Adobe PDF formats. In the case of the latter, it can also be provided as a descendent tree (approx 10 pages) with individuals' records in box format.

(Birth/Baptism of William not traced but his line is only one not linked to other Angmering Hammonds. He died in East Preston Workhouse in 1835 aged 74 which would make his birth date about 1761/2. His supposed father and mother, William and Rachel, were married in 1761but their first recorded child, Sarah was not born until over four years of marriage. It would be expected that the first child would have come sooner and would be named William, after custom.)
