HAMMOND. (Lieutenant, 1827.)

Robert Hammond served on board the Hebrus 36, Capt. Edm. Palmer, at the forcing of the Gironde in 1814. He passed his examination in 1818; was made Lieutenant, 23 June, 1827, into the Glasgow 50, commanded in the Mediterranean by Capt. Hon. Jas. Ashley Maude; and, on 23 Aug. following, removed to the Gannet sloop, Capts. Lord Ingestrie and Hon. Wm. Edwardes. That vessel being paid off in 1828, he next joined, 24 Jan. 1835, the Dublin 50, bearing the flag in South America of Sir Graham Eden Hamond. He was superseded at his own request 12 April, 1836, and has not since been afloat.

Lieut. Hammond married, in 1836, Sophia, daughter of John Musters, Esq., of Colwick Hall, co. Nottingham (a Magistrate and Deputy-Lieutenant for that shire), by Mary, only daughter and coheiress of Wm. Chaworth, Esq., of Annesley, Notts.
