Dear HAM(M)ON(D)(S) Researchers:
If you are not aware of it, Family Tree DNA has a terrific sale on the Y-DNA37 marker male paternal test (must be a new person testing) for $119 (plus $4 S&H). The kit must be ordered before 11:59 CDT on August 31 to get the sale price.
The Y-chromosome is passed from father to son. It is found only in males and is useful in verifying common ancestry. If you know of someone you have been trying to get tested, now is the time. Don't hesitate.
The following is a list of Immigrants with a HAMMOND (or variant) surname that I have assembled from the Internet. Please read it carefully to see if your Immigrant ancestor is shown. Corrections and/or additions are welcome. Please post changes on this Forum.
Y-DNA tests have been completed on at least one direct male descendant of each of these Immigrants. Results indicate that both the person tested and his ancestor belong to the Haplogroup indicated.
a. Haplogroup E - M78 & M215 (Formerly E3b):
Jacob HAMMAN (b. About 1740, probably Germany; d. 23 Mar 1808, Fannett, Franklin County, PA). Spouse: Barbara (Maiden Name Unknown).
Peter HAMMAN (b. About 1745, Germany; d. Date Unknown, Dauphin County, PA). Spouse: Unknown.
b. Haplogroup G2 - P15 & P18:
Phillip HAMMAN Sr. (b. 10 May 1744, Kernbach, Bretten, Baden, Germany; d. 3 Aug 1832, Near Fackler, Jackson County, AL.) Spouse: Christina COOK (b. Dec 1763, York County, PA; d. 28 Jan 1842, Hammondville, Dekalb County, AL) - Married 3 Mar 1780 in Greenbrier County, VA.

c. Haplogroup I1 - M253 (Formerly: I1a):
Martin HAMMOND Sr. (b. 27 Mar 1620, St. Mary-le-Bow Parish, Cheapside, London, England; d. About 1666, Surry County, VA). Spouse: Jane JOBE (b. About 1618, England; d. After 1683, Norfolk, Norfolk County, VA) - Married between 1637 - 1640 in Surry County, VA.
Note: Martin was brought to James City County, VA by John DUNSTAN in Spring of 1636 at age of 16 or 17 from the Port of London. Jane was brought to Virginia by 22 May 1637 at age 18 from the Port of London by Thomas DAVIS of Upper New Norfolk, VA. She probably knew Martin in London.
d. Haplogroup J?
George HAMMANN (b. 9 Nov 1811, Romanswiller, Alsace-Lorraine, Germany (or France?); died 17 Oct 1888, Medina County, OH}. Spouse: Katherine LONG - Married 1 Jan 1838 in Stark County, OH.
e. Haplogroup J1:
(Probably) Baltzer (or Balthasar) HAMMAN (b. About 1722, Ruschberg, Rhineland-Palatinate; d. After 1751, likely Macungie Township, Bucks (now Lehigh) County, PA). Spouse: Anna Margaretha ZIMMERMAN - Married 4 Apr 1747 in Macungie Township, Bucks (now Lehigh) County, PA.
f. Haplogroup J2b (Formerly J2e1):
Ambrose HAMMON (b. About 1647, St. James Parish, Clerkenwell, London, England; d. About 1694, Old Rappahanock County, VA). He was baptized on 28 Feb 1647 in St. James Parish, Clerkenwell. Spouse: Unknown.
Note: Prior to 26 Mar 1666, he, along with 126 other immigrants, arrived on the shores of America and Old Rappahannock County, VA at the age of 19. It is documented in Cavaliers and Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Volume One: 1623-16661, on page 548 where we find Ambrose Hamon [sic] listed among the 126 passengers where "Robert Taliafro and Lawrence Smith, 6300 acs. Rappa. Co., 26 Mar. 1666, p. 481 (587). In the freshes, on S. side and about 4 mi. above Waire Cr., beg. on the E. side of Snowe Cr., running up sd. river on the N. side of sd. Cr. &c. to a vale nere the mouth of Nusaponucks Cr. & c. Trans. of 126 pers:"
Some researchers have listed Ambrose as coming to America on 26 Mar 1666, but as pointed out by some experts in colonial Virginia research, that land patents and grants were given after immigrants were transported and did not include the actual date these individuals arrived. It is possible that Ambrose actually came to America in late 1665 or very early in 1666.
