HAMOND, William, of Newport, Cornw.
Available from Boydell and Brewer
Family and Education
It may have been this William Hamond who served on a jury at inquests held at Launceston shortly after the death of Sir Richard Cergeaux* in 1393. In the Trinity term of 1402 he started proceedings in the court of King’s bench against certain Cornish men who had damaged his property and assaulted his servants at Newport, on the outskirts of Launceston and some 16 miles from Liskeard. It is possible that Hamond was chosen to represent the latter borough in the Parliament of 1406 simply because he was known to be intending to travel to Westminster in order to pursue this lawsuit, which was still pending.
