HAMMOND - F. S. Hammond, History and Genealogy of the Hammond Families in North America, vol. 1(1902), p. 518-19, item #6: “Daniel Hammond” should be David, acc. to 1820 Rev. War pension application (R-8374) of second father-in-law Lemuel POTTER of Solon, Cortland Co., N.Y., and 1819 Delaware Co., N.Y. surrogate rec. of John PALMER (Liber C, p. 84) which gives admins. as David & Elizabeth HAMMOND. David HAMMOND’s first w., not identified in the printed work, was Susan HINKLEY; David m. (2) Elizabeth (POTTER) PALMER (whose g. s. in Solon Cem., Cortland Co., NY., gives her dates as Aug. 1778-22 Jan. 1852), dau. of Lemuel POTTER, wid. of John PALMER.
Lemuel HAMMOND, b. 1819 (g. s. and fam. recs.), son of David & Elizabeth, was my great-great grandfather. His only known full sibling was Barton C. HAMMOND (who, appar. acc. to a g. s., was b. Cortland Co. in March 1820, and d. Vermontville, Eaton Co., Mich. 6 March 1891). W.W. Munsell, History of Delaware Co., N.Y. (1880), p. 270 gives 1813 as year of birth for Lemuel’s older half-bro. Burch HAMMOND, farmer. This correction reflects ten years’ work by Betty (Packer) Peasley, Leeta (Packer) Gridley, and Rosalie Hall of Castro Valley, Calif., descendants of David HAMMOND by both wives.

NEXUS 9(1992):151-52: The husband of Elizabeth Zouche was Devereux Wolseley, not Sir Thomas (as per the cited sources, with thanks to John D. Kilbourne of Washington, D.C. for bringing this slip to my attention). There also seems to be no evidence, despite a contrary statement in F. L. Weis, W. L. Sheppard, Jr., and David Fans, Magna Charta Sureties, 1215, 4th ed. (1991), line 47, that Rev. Daniel Horsmanden or his wife Ursula St. Leger immigrated to Virginia. The immigrant instead was their son, Warham Horsmanden (1628-91) of Charles City Co., also mentioned in the article, maternal grandfather of the diarist William Byrd II of Westover. -GBR
