The name Hamblett is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in Chiddingley, Sussex, where they took their name from Hamley Bridge. Undoubtedly the original bearer of the name lived next to the bridge, and it is possible that the maintenance and upkeep of the bridge were his responsibility.

Hamblett Early Origins



The surname Hamblett was first found in Hertfordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hamblett Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hamblett family name include Hambley, Hambly, Hamley, Hamby and others.
