Sir DAVID HANMER (d. c. 1388) became a justice of the king's bench in 1383 and was knighted in 1387. He m. Agnes (or Angharad), daughter of Llywelyn Ddu ap Gruffydd ap Iorwerth, and the Welsh tone of the family appears in the support they gave to Owain Glyn Dŵr (q.v.), who m. Sir David's daughter Margaret. Her brothers GRIFFITH (who m. into the Tudor family of Penmynydd ) and PHILIP joined in proclaiming him prince of Wales in 1400, the latter being in Paris in quest of aid for the rebellion as late as 1415. Their lands were in consequence forfeit to their brother JOHN, who also m. a local heiress; but he too later joined Glyn Dŵr and acted as his envoy in Paris in 1404; the tradition that he fell in the battle of Shrewsbury (1403) is now discredited. Pardoned in 1411, he divided his estates between his four sons, the eldest succeeding at Hanmer and the others at Halton, Fens, and Bettisfield respectively. The male line of Halton Hanmers ended in the early 16th cent, with the death abroad of Sir EDWARD HANMER, knighted for his services as ‘condottiere’ to the Medici, that of Bettisfield in 1623, both estates falling to the senior branch. This in turn terminated in 1746, when a family settlement concentrated the whole complex of estates in the Fens branch.[1]
