Stephen married Unknown Unknown and had a son, John. He was Lord of Hamerton. In 1316 Stephen de Hamerton was benefactor of Kirkstall Abbey and founded a chantry at Hamerton The Chantry founded by Stephen de Hamerton, in the chapel of St. Mary, within his manor of Hamerton, in 1332, for a competent secular chaplain, presentable by himself during his life, and after his decease, by his son John, and his heirs, in the said chapel, to celebrate masses, & c. for the said Stephen, Richard his father, and Agnes his mother. For the support of which chaplain, he amortized two messuages, thirty six acres of land, and twenty acres of meadow, in Slaidburn, and New Laund in Rowland, for ever. This endowment was confirmed by William, Archbishop of York, in February, 1332. Two institutions only occur for this chantry, and as it does not appear in the catalogue of Archbishop Holgate or Browne Willis, it seems most probable that it fell long before the general dissolution.
