HAMOND ( ? 1079-1095).*

According to the Chronicle of Man, "after William, in the days of Godred Crouan, Hammond, son of Jole, a Manxman, held the Episcopal See." This is all the information we have about him, unless we are to accept the theory that the chronology of the Chronicle is wrong and that he is identical with a certain Wimund, elected Bishop of Man in 1134, who was afterwards ruler of the southern portion of Scotland, and who died about the year 1170; but this is more than doubtful."*
