Hammer Genealogy & History

Hammer is a pre-medieval English or German surname. The English derivation from hamor (meaning rock or crag) refers to a person who lived near a prominent rock, such as the village of Hamer in Lancashire. In Hammer family history, one prominent branch held a feudal estate in Sussex. The unusual inclusion of silver dolphins on the family coat of arms signifies charity and sincerity. The German-Flemish-Dutch derivations from hamar, meaning stone, were occupational for a maker or user of hammers. The first American immigrant was Pedro Hammer, who settled in Maryland in 1666. American Hammer genealogy also includes petroleum executive Armand Hammer.
