Biografie

The Hamonds were a gentry family settled at South Wootton by the early 17th century and granted arms in 1698, whose rise into prominence in the County was marked by the purchase by Richard Hamond (1709-1776) of the Westacre Estate, with the newly-built High House, from the impoverished Spelman family in 1761. They remained at High House until 1898, dispersing thereafter to Westacre Abbey, Twyford Hall, Morston and elsewhere. The nephew and heir of the purchaser was Anthony Hamond (1742-1822), Sheriff of Norfolk, 1792-1793, whose soubriquet 'Rabbitskins' was earned through rabbit farming and perhaps his willingness to prosecute for petty theft. His son Philip (1782-1824) outlived his father for only two years but Philip's son Anthony (1805-1869) took a leading role in the County both as a Liberal politician and an agriculturalist. Later members of the family included Charles Annesley Hamond (1856-1914), the naturalist, and Anthony Hamond (d 1991).
