Charles Hammerton

Hammerton was a member of Worshipful Company of Paviors and held the position of City Pavior and alderman of the Bread Street ward from 1797. He leased the mills from Tyssen in 1782.

Hammerton realized a considerable fortune by the introduction of the ‘Scotch pavement’ to London using Scottish pebbles to pave streets, which were considered superior.

Hammerton was Sheriff of London in 1789.
