William Hammond, eldest son of Thomas and Rose, probably came to America previous to the year 1634, as he does not appear to have accompanied his wife and children that year. Probably he did not settle immediately in Watertown,as he was not a proprietor in Feb., 1636-7, but he was so in 1642. His wife, Elizabeh, aged 47 , and dr. Elizabeth, aged 15 years, dr. Sarah, aged 10 years, and son John, aged 7 years, embarked at Ipswich, Eng., in the ship Francis, Ap. 1634. He was adm. freeman May 25, 1636, and was selectman 1648. He d. in Wat., Oct. 8, 1662, aged 90, and his wid. Elizabeth, d. Sept. 14, 1670, (aged about 90." [It will be observed that this age does not correspond with that given at her embarkation. Probably the later is the correct one. His will, dated July 1, proved Dec. 16, 1662, mentions wife Elizabeth; son John; grandson Thomas, son of his son Thomas; drs. Elizabeth House, --- Barnes, and Sarah Smith. In a suit, in 1652, Thomas Hammond vs. John Gridge, it appears that H. had an uncle[8]
