Edward Hammond was probably related to Thomas [SSNE 5398]. He was a student in 1687 and obtained his baccalaureate in 1688. From 14 September 1689 he was a secretary in the Danish Chancellery. On 12 April 1690 there was a dispute over the estate of Thomas Hammond in Trondheim between his son, Thomas Hammond junior, Morten Angell and Johan Molman against the Police commissioner, Peder Paulsen. The inheritors could not agree with Paulsed over the amount of his share. Paulsen then had a dispute with Edward Hammond over similar matters. In 1699 Edward was an assessor in the treasury and in 1700 became an "amtmand" (a local governor) in Stavanger. He became a councillor of the chancellery in 1709 and the following year was appointed "Stiftamtmand", a regional administrator(governor) in Bergen. He died there on 9 April 1711.
