    The family was said to be of Dutch not French extraction, but Smiles gives the family a Norman origin.
    Major (afterwards Colonel) Isaac Hamon.
    (Clerical and Parochial Records of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross: Taken from ... - Page 99
    by William Maziere Brady - 1864)
    Hector Hamon served with General Primrose's Foot, while Isaac fought at Malplaquet [1709] and was Lieutenant-Colonel in the Queen's Regiment before his retirement in 1746. He died in Portarlington in 1755, leaving a daughter Marianne Champagne.
    Hector predeceased his brother by 14 years.
    Hector Hamon was born in France about 1680. He died in 1741. He was married to Marie Anne Mazick about 1710 (IGI says 12 May 1716 St Michael's, Dublin, Ireland). She died in 1773. (Hector had a brother, Isaac whose daughter, Marianne was married to Dean Arthur Champagne who was a friend of Dr Joshua Pilot (who fled to Ireland from Poitou about 1685) and executor of his estate).
    Did have him born abt 1698, but that would make him 11 at the battle of Malplaquet!
    The Huguenots of Lisburn, Ireland:
    The family of Hamon were early converts to Protestantism. They came from the Loire region and several parts of Normandy and were also found prior to the Revocation in the Channel Islands. When the persecution of the Huguenots began, Queen Elizabeth sent help to the Islands, partly because they were considered to be Crown property, and their defences were inadequate. In 1563 the Island of Sark was uninhabited, so in order to defend the other islands it was colonised, and several Hamons went there, including Thomas Hamon about 1567 where the name is still to be found.
    In due course Hamons went to Ireland, where they are found in Dublin and Portarlington [where Isaac died.], some went to America and some in 1855 to Australia. There were Hamons in the Williamite army but the earliest known in Lisburn was Lucas Hamon in the 1688 [Lisburn?] Parish Register. In the [Lisburn?] rent roll of 1691 Jonathan Hamon lived in Antrim Walke, Lisburn, and in 1699 William Hamon also.
    Is this him?:
    ?Isaac Hamon, son of Peter Hamon, by Charlotte his wife, born at Paris in France.?
    (Huguenot Society of London. Volumes 25-27. 1921. Page 69.)
    Will of Isaac Hamon of Portarlington, Queen?s County, Ireland, dated 19 May 1753, codicil 12 Aug 1754, Administration 4 April 1755 PROB 11/815.
    Colonel Isaac Hamon, whose ancestor came to England early in Queen Elizabeth's...
    Presumably from the dates this must be a son?:
    Isaac Hamon, esq. of Portarlington, in Ireland, married Mary, yst dau of George Ffarington (b 1696) of Shawe Hall, Lancs, and his wife (married 1717) Margaret, dau and sole heir of John Bradshaw, esq of Pennington?
    (BLG 1836 re Ffarington, p 342)
    The battle of Malplaquet was one of the bloodiest contests in modern history. Its "Butchers Bill" was by far the worst of any engagement fought during the War of Spanish Succession, and the shock wave that it engendered reverberated through all strata of what today we consider to have been a polite and genteel society.
    Most sources state that the Allies lost 25,000 men, the French, between 10,000 and 15,000.These figures do not allow for those men who died weeks, or maybe even months later from their wounds.
