7. Thomas Hammond

Thomas’ wife Elizabeth Cason was born 1603 in Lavenham, Suffolk, England. Her parents were Robert Cason and Prudence Hammond. Elizabeth died 30 Sep 1675 in Newton, Middlesex, Mass.

This story is told of Elizabeth: When young, she took a walk with other youths to the Bank of England Mint to see how money was made. The Master of the Mint was pleased with her appearance and chat, and gave her an invitation to try her hand in money making. She had made some impression upon him, and he was desirous of knowing if she could make an impression on the coin. He placed a piece of silver upon the die, about the size of a half crown. She came forward and grasped the lever, and stamped a fair impression on the coin. He presented her with the piece. It is now possessed by Stephen Hammond, of Roxbury, whose son William, of the eighth generation from her, is expected to inherit the treasure.

In the early 1630s, Thomas and Elizabeth followed a first cousin of his, William Hammond, to the New Land. He became one of the first settlers in Hingham, Mass., where land was granted to him in 1636. He took the Freeman’s oath, March 9th, 1637. In Hingham, they had four children:
