HAMMETT Family History

This is an interesting example of how a name may be a combination of both the personal and the topographical. "Ham-et" was a diminutive form of the Norman personal name "Hamo(n)", plus "ette" from the French "Petit" meaning small or little. Thus the name would have been given to mean "son of Hamo". The prefix "Ham" may also be interpreted from the Anglo-Saxon "Ham" meaning flat, alluvial wetlands, so that Hammett would refer to "the son of one who lived by or near a low lying meadow". The variant Hamatt is seen in the record of the christening of the infant Susan Hammatt at St.
