Description
A transnational collection of 18th-19th century material pertaining to three generations of a British Naval family; includes letters, manuscripts, journals, ship's logs, letter books, ship's papers, maps, volumes and ephemera.
Background
The Hamond family (later Hamond-Graeme), of Norfolk and Isle of Wight, England, produced three generations of men who had distinguished careers in the British Royal Navy during the 18th and 19th centuries. Sir Andrew Snape Hamond (1738-1828, 1st Baronet), was a British naval officer and Comptroller of the Navy. He was followed into the profession by his son Sir Graham Eden Hamond (1779-1862, 2nd Baronet), who was a British naval officer, vice-admiral and Commander-in-Chief. He was followed, in turn, by his son Sir Andrew Snape Hamond-Graeme (1811-1874, 3rd Baronet), who was a British naval officer and vice-admiral. Another family member in the collection is Sir Andrew Snape Douglas (1761-1797, 1st Baronet), a nephew of the elder Andrew Snape Hamond and a Flag Captain in the Royal Navy.
