HAMMONDS Family HistoryThis is a patronymic i.e. 'the son of Hammond' - a derivative of the Olde French personal name Hamond or the Olde German Hamo(n) with an excrescent 'd'. The root of both names is the German 'haim' meaning 'home'. Hamo became popular in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066 and is first recorded in 'Ancient Social and Economic Documents of Lincolnshire' c. 1140 - 'Hamo or Hamandus Elemosinarius'. The surname first appears in the early half of the 13th century (see below). One Richard Hamond is recorded in the 1327 Pipe Rolls of Sussex.
