From the genealogy of Laura Hammond, Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia; daughter of Hon Job Hammond - 1945:

Laura Hammond notes: For a record of Maj. Gen. John Hammond's sons, see Warfield's History of Anne Arundel & Howard Counties, p. 178-184. See also Ancestral Records and Portraits, vol. I, pp. 151-254, 508-509, 629-630.

Laura Hammond devoted a whole page to Maj. Gen. John Hammond. The copy of the text was cut off on the right-hand margin, thus where parts were missing, '---'as inserted:

"The Hammonds appear in Virginia with the first of the puritan Colony. ----- then went from Virginia to Maryland. "This ancient and knightly family" Mark N---- were greatly divided in their religious and political opinions." Major General John Hammond, who held office in Maryland under Queen Anne, was n------ descended from a Royalist, while we find the name frequently connected to the Crommwelles in England as well as in America." John Hammond, the son of Robert Hammond, court physician to King James I, was in the Isle of Wright, Virginia --- went from there to Maryland. He wrote "Leade Rachel" (could be Leahe Rachel), the first account of the ---- colonyes. He (this John Hammond) came to Virginia in 1634. Fr. then he went to Maryland where he lived for 18 or 19 years, before he returned to England. He was not, however, as --- appears, the founder of the family of the Hammonds who sprang from Maryland. "John of the Severn" (1653-1707) was their ancestor.

The Next immigrant in Anne Arundel County was John Hammond -----. His estates joined the Howards, and he was brother-in-law of them as he married Mary Howard, daughter of Matthew Howard, and sister of Cornelius Howard I. His mother was Ann Hall. In 1689 he was a member of the Provencial Court of Anne Arundel, and one of "the Quorum". In 1692 he was a deligate to --- Lower House with Col. H. Ridgley and Hon. J. Dorsey. Still later he w---- by the royal administration with who he was in favor, Judge of ---- Court of Admiralty. A concise history of his career is recorded in the annals of St. Anne Church, Annapolis as an obituary notice. He was one of the vestry at the time of his death, and an ardent member of the Church of England. He gave, in 1695m a ---- a church site upon "Severn Heights" to his 'friends, members of the Westminister ------- The only consideration was, "the love he bore his neighbors." He acquired a large estate in both the city of Annapolis, and upon the Severn. He was considered a leading member of the county. It has frequently been written that his English progenitors were ---- eminence in both medicine and politics. St. Anne's records upon his death, in St. Anne Church reads: "Hon. John Hammond, Esq., Maj. Gen. of the Western shore of Maryland, One of her Majesty's most honorable council and Judge of the High Court of Admir---- the Province of Maryland, was buried the 29th of Nov. 1707. In St. Anne's grounds ---- tombstone now rests. Long after all vestiges of his old homestead upon the Severn --- disappeared, this memorial was found and removed to the church grounds of his --- St. Anne's Church has also a well preserved Bible, purchased by the vestry from a le---- of 10f left by him to the church. General Hammond was one of the Commissioners --- to lay out lots and organize the town of Annapolis. General Hammond's wi---- "I leave my home plantation to my wife, Mary (Howard) Hammond, My eldest son, Thomas --- plantation called "Mt. Airy Neck". to my son John, the plantation where he lives, a ---- "Swan Neck"; to my son William, the other part. Son Charles Flushing, "Deer Creek ---"Rich Neck" and "Hammond's Forest:. To my first three sons, my houses and ---- Annapolis. My four sons to be my executors."
