The first Richard Gervase de Hampton was living in 1320, an d had five sons and at least one daughter. Once I had determined these important facts, it became a matter of trying to determine what became of those sons. Following are my attempts at that task. I have endeavored to include with eac h person the quotes that led me to place them in the order you find them. In a very few instances, I make a working hypothesis of relationships, but those assumptions are made plain. The problem remains that, other than in the paper of Dr. Joseph Lynon Miller - and Stebbing Shawís 'Notes of Staffordshire' about the Hampton's - which makes pointed reference to the fact that William Hampton who immigrated to Virginia on the Bo na Nova was related to these de Hamptonís - I have yet to find the missing link
although I do make some assumptions." This web site takes the lineage of the de Hamptons back several more centuries.
