Families covered: Hampden of Great Hampden

  (a) Sir Alexander de Hampden, Sheriff of Berkshire and Bedfordshire (d 1264)
  Noble does not identify Alexander's wife, shows his son Reginald as m. Marion, dau of Sir Brian Hardeby, and shows Reginald & Marion as parents of Alexander (d unm), another Sir Reginald (m. Nichola, dau of John de Grenville of Chilton) and 3 daughters. Provisionally, we follow Lipscomb which cuts out a generation as follows:
  m. Maryan Herdeby (dau of Bryan Herdeby or Hardeby)
  ((1)) Sir Reginald de Hampden (2nd son) - continued below
  m. Nichola de Grenville (dau of John de Grenville of Wotton by Agatha, dau of Walter de Burgh)
  ((2))+ other issue - Alexander (d unm), William

 

 

Having reported the early generations above, Noble (in 'Memoirs of the House of Cromwell' does not again pick up the pedigree of John Hampden, "The Patriot", until his grandfather Griffith Hampden. Lipscomb provides the next generation but follows the line of the younger son, Richard. Visitation does not start until the Sir Edmund who died c1420. That that Sir Edmund was son of John (Richard's elder brother) is shown by various web sites.
