Information for earlier Hammertons@1170 AD - Descended from Richard de Hamerton. who was living in 1170, at Hamerton, York. In the reign of Edward III. The family acquired Hellifield in same county, where they still reside. Shirley's Noble and Gentle Men.The book is Patronymica Britannica. This is purely circumstancial but he is the closest link to the Hammerton's who were not part of the Gentry and well to do's so until proved otherwise I will link him to John Hammerton. Once again I suspect that Dorothy Burnett was a Catholic and widowed when they married. The Burnetts were listed as Catholics according to a book of Catholics from this period.
