Henry Hammond (1605-1660)
Henry Hammond was born at Chertsey Surrey on 18th August 1605, he was the youngest son of John Hammond, physician. Educated at Eton and Magdalen College, Oxford, he graduated in 1622 and in 1633 he became rector of Penshurst; in March 1639 he was appointed D.D. (Doctor of Divinity). At the beginning of the English Civil War in 1643 he was made archdeacon of Chichester and helped to raise a troop of horse for the service of King Charles I. In order to resist the Parliamentarian cause he was obliged to flee in disguise to the King's headquarters in Oxford. In 1644 Hammond published "Practical Catechism", a copy of which the King gave to his son Henry Duke of Gloucester. Hammond was made chaplain to the Royal Commissioners in 1645 and in 1647, after the Royalist surrender of Oxford, he was commanded to attend the King as his personal chaplain. When the King was removed to Childersly he remained with him constantly until December 1647 when Hammond was ordered by Parliament to return to Oxford where he was appointed sub-dean of Christchurch. In 1648 he retired to Westwood in Worcester. On 25th April 1660 he died of an 'attack of stone' the same day that the restoration was declared.
