The Old Hall, Lamas, or Manor of Lamas. Birthplace of 1820 settler to South Africa - Elizabeth Damant

The Damant family held the manor of Lammas near Norwich for nearly a century, and some of their ancestors are buried in St. Andrew's Church, Lammas, where there are several memorial stones showing the arms of Damant impaled with Eyre, Sancroft, Guybon and Castell. Thomas Damant inherited the Manor of Lammas by his marriage with Maria, daughter and heiress of Edward Eyre.

Thomas married secondly Alice, daughter of Francis Sancroft and great niece of Archbishop Sancroft. Their son Thomas Damant (1718-1762) married Mary Guybon, and Thomas and Mary's son, William Damant (1743 - 1808), Lord of the Manor of Lammas, married Elizabeth Castell on 23 Jun 1772. William and Elizabeth were the parents of several settlers who went to South Africa -
