Re: Hammonds from Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire
Too right they sound familiar, because I've been tracing this line this very week :-)
Leonard Hammond and Eliza Fields had a couple of other children to the ones that you mention;
Edward Fields Hammond (1871-1958)
Leonard Hammond (born 1878)
The line I research descends from Edward Fields Hammond.
Edwards Fields Hammond Married Florence Greenwood, and they had two children Annie (1899) and Josiah (1902-1977)
Edward, Florence and Josiah are buried at Glossop.
Josiah Hammond married Mary Millthorpe, and had at least one child, Arthur Fields Hammond (1930-1977).
Arthur Fields Hammond married Jean Critchlow, and had two children Elaine (1952) and Beverley (1957).
Beverley married Leslie Holmes (1957-2000), and they have two children Elizabeth Holly (1984) and Harvey Alexander (1987).
I'm Beverley's partner (and hopefully future 2nd husband!)
By my reckoning, you and Beverley are 2nd ousins once removed.
Get in touch!
