Charlotte "Lottie" Hammond was the wife of Mr. Hammond, the mother of Ella, Gertie, an unnamed pair of twins, George, Hugo, Julie Anna, and Roderick.
Lottie was born in late 1849 or early 1850 in Maine, USA. She was raised there and most likely attended the local school.
In 1869, Lottie met Mr. Hammond at her cousin's wedding and danced with him many dances. He seemed to love her curly hair and paid much attention to her. Suddenly he proposed to her and Lottie said yes so quickly that she surprised even herself.
Marriage with Mr. HammondEdit
Their wedding took place in May 1869. They had together eight children including three sets of twins. In 1873, Anne Shirley moved in with the Hammonds after Mr. Thomas died, for a help with children and around the house.
Three years later, her husband died and was buried at Marysville graveyard. Lottie divided her children among her relatives and sent Anne to the Hopetown asylum. Lottie moved to the USA and started her new life there.
Mrs. Hammond treated poor Anne as a servant.
