An account of Hamo, who was son of Hamo Dentatus (slain at Val-es-Dunes in 1047), and who was dapifer both to the Conqueror and William Rufus and sheriff of Kent in 1086, is given, together with an account of his sons Hamo and Robert, by D. C. Douglas in "The Domesday Monachorum of Christ Church Canterbury", pp. 55-6, where the relevant authorities are cited. That Hamo dapifer and Hamo the Sheriff were undoubtedly one and the same person is proved by the Kentish returns of 1242-3 in 'The Book of Fees', pp.654 et seq., when the lands held by the sheriff in 1086 were held by the earl of Gloucester, who was the heir of Hamo dapifer through the marriage of Robert earl of Gloucester with the daughter and heir of Robert, son of Hamo dapifer.
