    • Jackson's history of Newton and Bond's history of Watertown both give the date of his death as "March 15, 1738, aged 72 years," but an examination of Middlesex Probate Records shows that adm. was granted on his estate in 1720, and that a bond was given July 14, 1721, signed by Caleb Hammond, Ebenezer Hammond and nathaniel Hammond. the estate appears to have been held until Feb. 24, 1755, when it was appraised by Deacon John Stone and Thomas Greenwood and commissioners appointed to divide the property. the commissioners, Thomas Greenwood, John Stone and James Ward, reported to the court under date of March 18, 1755.

      "Having thus perfected the Inventory we are of the opinion that to distribute the same will be predudicial to the whole. We have therefore set the whole of the forgoing pieces of land and part of the dwelling house on John Hammond, said deceast oldest son, in paying the Thomas Hammond, Caleb hammond, Mehitable Petty, the wife of James Petty, and mary Benjamin, the wife of Samuel Benjamin, four of said deceased children, as also the heirs of legal representatives of the children of Samuel Hammond deceast, as your Honor shall order."
