  A. Laurence Hamerton of Hamerton, Hellifield-Peel, Langfield, etc. (a 1441)
BLG1952 (Bower) identifies Laurence's wife as Isabel, only daughter of Sir Richard Tempest of Bracewell. However, BLG1952 (Tempest) identifies two different Isabellas married to Lawrence Hameron, one daughter of Sir Richard and the other daughter of Sir John Tempest of Bracewell, grandson of that Sir Richard. The few available dates do not give certainty but we suspect that (contrary to our original view) the former is likely to be correct for this Laurence.
