This name is also established in Ireland, having first been taken there in the medieval period.
  2. The descendants of the clergyman Thomas Hampton, resident at Jamestown, VA, in 1630, lived in VA through three generations, multiplying their homesteads as the colony expanded and then branched into SC.
