This site includes selected records and genealogical reports for our early Colonial Virginia Hammett Ancestors, including a few family records, as well as deeds, wills and parish register records collected by numerous other researchers over the years. We would like to thank three Very Important and Special People, without whom most of what Hammett researchers already have would not have been possible:

(1) That lovely man, Our Very Own Tory, GEORGE HAMMETT of Nova Scotia, son of John and Sarah UNDERWOOD Hammett, without whose letters we might not even be able to prove our Virginia ancestry, never mind the South Carolina and Georgia years. More than forty years after the Revolution, in 1820, George wrote from Nova Scotia to his father in South Carolina, the first of a series of letters between George and his family that serve to document not only his siblings, but most (if not all) of the children of his grandfather, William HAMMETT II of Richmond/King George, Stafford, Prince William/Fauquier and Culpeper Co, VA.
(2) W. THOMAS EDWARDS and DELPHINE Miller, co-authors of that wonderful book, Hammett Families, Descendants of John Hammett, Sr. (ca. 1735 - 1822) and Sarah (UNDERWOOD) Hammett (ca 1740-1820), Named In Contemporary Family Letters And in Public and Family Records (hereinafter Hammett Families…, published in Atlanta, Georgia, ©1978. (Note: Permission to reprint must be secured from W. Thomas Edwards at See Also Below)
(3) Mrs. PHYLLIS HAMMETT BALLOU and her ancestors, the descendants of George HAMMETT, without whose careful care for the letters, so many of us would still be floundering these almost two hundred years later. Note: Permission to reproduce The Nova Scotia Letters should be secured from Mrs. Phyllis Hammett Ballou, 1710 Dover Street, Murfreesboro, TN 37130
