About Elizabeth Hammond (Penn)

  • In 1634 Elizabeth and her children boarded the "Griffin", heading to Boston, MA. They landed on September 18, 1634. Elizabeth is the sister of Admiral Sir William Penn and also is the aunt of William Penn the Quaker, after whom the state of Pennsylvania is named.

Per Harry Ham, 1930 (family researcher). Noted by Diane Tatum, 7/1/2011

  • Hammond, Benjamin, Elizabeth (widow) and children Elisabeth, Martha, Rachel and Benjamin. From London, bound for Boston. Ref: Hamond Gen pg 565. 36 pg 109) from the source: http://www.packrat-pro.com/ships/griffin.htm
  • Elizabeth Hammond, widow of William, with her son Benjamin and three daus., all young, left a good estate in London, and came over to New England in the troublesome times of 1634, from a desire to have the liberty to serve God according to the dictates of their consciences. They arrived in Boston, Sept. 18, 1634, in the ship Griffin, and had with them the Rev. John Lothrop, their minister. Mrs. Hammond lived in Boston and in Watertown, Mass. until the year 1638, when she joined Rev. John Lothrop's church in Scituate, April 16, 1638, being the 33rd member of said church.
 Mrs. Elizabeth (Penn) Hammond probably returned to Boston near the close of the year 1639, as she died and was buried there A.D. 1640."
