The Hammond Family - Laura Hammond 1945

(Includes my line added)

Index at the bottom

Miss Laura Hammond was a cousin of my grandmother, Annie Nowlan 'Evelyn' Watkins. Laura compiled her genealogy records over a period of years from 1920 thru 1945. Miss Laura Hammond was the sixth child born to Nathaniel Job and Laura Lewis Hammond. While her father was a member of the United States Congress, she studied to be a librarian in both Washington, D.C. and New York, N. Y. Miss Hammond opened the first school library at The Georgia School of Technology about 1908. She served as Librarian for the following sixteen years, during which time her sister, Julia Hammond, served as her only assistant.
From what I can glean from her records, Laura was a member of a good many societies. As I computerize her records, I will add them here.

From Jim Hammond: In Laura Hammond's document, for example, I'm fairly certain that her claim of lineage prior to Job No. 1 is not right. I just haven't seen any documentary evidence to support it, and she didn't provide any. And probably when such documents are posted on the web, they should carry some such disclaimer that some of the claims are not supported by documentary evidence.

Ruth's note: I agree wholeheartedly! Thanks Jim!

From Amy Gilreath: Just want to correct this one thing from Laura Hammond:

>>>.The Hammonds left Virginia during the Revolutionary War. The immediate occasion was the destruction of their property in virginia by the Tories.<<<<<

Samuel Hammond sold all his property including his household equipment - pots & pans, his mare, 29 head of hogs, etc and moved to NC in 1767. [See Fairfax Co., VA Deed Book G, p. 282, 22 Sept. 1767]. Tories had nothing to do with it ...

Good work Amy! Thanks!

1 Thomas HAMMOND


Birth: abt 1515, St Albans Court, Kent, England


Hammond. The name as a family name appears in England from the date of the Conquest. It is found with a large variations of spelling, often exhibiting three or more forms in these documents. The name appears to have been generally spelled Hamond or Hamonde prior to 1700, is often sound written Hamon, Hamont, or Hamond, or Hamonde. It is not until after the emigration to America that we find anything like uniformity of spelling, even in the same family. the large majority adopted the uniform spelling of Hammnd. In the annals of the conquest no name is more frequently met with than Hamon, the sons of the renowned Norman Lord Hamon of Dentatus. In some accounts of our illustrious Norman ancestor, we learn that some person peculiarity entitled him to bear, in the language of our Latin Chronicles, one of the most glorious cognomenia of old Rome, and Hamon Dentatus became the forefather of men famous in British as well as Norman History (Burkes Battle Abbey Roll, 1848, page 61)


Katherine S. Macquoid, in her through Normand, page 407m describes the ancient fortress of the castle of Hamon in Cruelly, which is still in existance. But a disconnected fragmentary record of the hammonds can be found from the times of the Conquest down to the time of Henry Viii. The earliest known seat of the family seems to have been in the county of Norfolk, and from there they seem to have spread over Suffolk, Essex, Yorkshire, and other counties.


Our family came from the county of Norfolk and the county of Suffolk, England. A tombstone in the church yard at St. Clements, Ipswich, England, has the following inscriptions: The burying place of Capt. Benjamin Hammond and Captain John Hammond, sons of Edward Hammond, in the parish, and dispalys a quartre foil between three demi-lions passant and ardant, and the Crest above on helmet and torso is a wolfs head erased. Motto: Paratus et Fidelis (See Suffolk Memorial Families)


Edward Hammond and his wife Catherine were living in the Parish of St. Clements, Ipswich, England in 1571 to 1577. They had a number of children, among whom were Edward, John, Thomas, Job.


The most widely known family bearing the name in England has been that of St. Albans Court, Nonington County, Kent.


There is a painting of possibly Edward Hammond done by the artist, Rebens as shown in Laura Hammonds book.


Also: LDS Record AFN:854L-FQ gives this name as the father of Edward Hammond.

Notes of Laura Hammond: Edward Hammond came to America in 1635 to Virginia and introduced the culture of silkworm. The family is probably of Suffolk or Norfolk origin, traces its ancestry back to John Hamon, a tenant to the Abbot of St. Albans, tempor under Henry VIII, who began the purchase of the Manor of St. Albans. His son, Sir Thomas Hammond completed the purchase in 1548. The parents of Job Hammond I were the first settlers of Virginia, it is supposed.

Louise was an artist by trade.

My mother told me the story of: Henry Remshart was a French Canadian (Mountie??) gave Louise to a family member on her mother's side as a baby and then dissappeared. This can not be correct as the Remsharts were in Georgia for generations. But, Louises mother, Ella Louise Hammond died in September after Louise was born in May....

Annie Nowlin WATKINS went by many names: Annie Marie, Annie Evelyn, Evelyn Marie, Annie Nolan Watkins, Evelyn Cooper, Evelyn Bennett, Evelyn Watkins Staber and Evelyn Staber. ANY combinations of the above, she probably used.


All family lore stated that Annie was born in Forsyth, Georgia. Records say she was born in Griffin, Spalding County, Georgia. Where she picked up the name 'Evelyn' is unknown. Her death certificate and her gravestone says 'Evelyn' as that is what my mother, Marian Louise Watkins Davis informed the officials at the time of 'Evelyn's' death. Marian also gave 'Evelyn's place of birth as Forsyth, Georgia. As long as I can remember, my grandmother went by the name 'Evelyn' as her first name.

Other notes of Laura Hammond:

Nathaniel Job Hammond, 1833-1899. Born in the County of Elbert, Georga. He was reared chiefly at Calloden, in Munroe County, where he acquired his primary and preparatory education. He entered the University of Georgia in 1850, and graduated in 1852, sharing the highest honor of his class. He was admitted to the Bar in 1853. He married, in 1858, Laura Lewis, daughter of Curtis Lewis, Esq. of Griffin, Georgia. He practiced law with his father until the death of the latter in 1877. In 1882, he formed a partnership with his son which continued until his death, Arpil 20, 1899. He was Solicitor General of the Atlanta circuit from 1861 to 1865, a General of the State from 1872 to 1877, A member of the constitutional convention of 1877, and a member of the U.S. congress from 1879 to 1887( 46, 47, & 48 Congress - House of Representatives) while there, he served in the Judiciary Committee with McKinley. For many years he was a member of the Board of Education for the city of Atlanta, and from 1872 forward, was one of the Trustees of the University of Georgia. He was a Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the time of his death. He was also President of the Board of Trustees of the Atlanta College of Physicians and Surgeons, and his last public appearance was in that character when he delivered an address in the Grand Opera House in Atlanta. His career was honorable to himself, to his district, to his state and to the country at large. Ane in every position of public trust to which he was ever called, he discharged his duties with ability, fidelity and stainless purity. (Judge L. E. Blackley) The General Assembly referred to his sole supervision the code of 1873. His own scholorship was liberal, finished and accurate. He was gifted by nature with the legal instinct, the legal faculty, and that was the main factor in his professional long as there is a Georgia bar, his will be one of the remembered and honored names in its history... His perfect purity and recitude in private life made him a model for imitation by all men for all times...His memory is a precious and priceless legacy to those of his own who survive him. the bar of Atlanta, in offering their condolence and sympathy to his family can point to two former instances in which they testified to their high appreciation of him. The first was in 1887 when on the occurence as a vacancy upon the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States, they united with members of the bar throughout the state. In recommending hm for appointment to fill the vacancy. And the next was in 1895, when a portrait of Col. Hammond, presented to the State by the bar of Atlanta was accepted by the General Assemblyu, by resolution and ordered hung in the Capitol. (Judge Bleckley) The State Flat is flying at half-mast, today, from the dome of the Camitol as a tribute to Col. Hammond and as a token of the loss his death brings to the Commonwealth. April 20, 1899. From the Boston Eve. Transcript as editoria headed A States Great Loss: No man has died in Georgia in many a year to whom higher tributes have been paid in his own state, and no one has better deserved them. A man of high character and influence both in his public and private life. It was Senator S. J. Randall of PA who, pointing Col. Hammond out both in his public and private life. There goes a man with the clearest head and the Purist heart in Congress.
