A Short History of
7 Philip Street, Medfield, Massachusetts, the Hamant Homestead
Francis D. Hamant, one of thirteen original founders of Medfield, received land on South Street by grant and built a house near a stream, called Nantasket Brook, on Philip Street during the summer of 1652. This is now the ell which was constructed of post and beam on field stone foundation with granite. Sons John and Timothy lived and farmed there until 1718 when Timothy took ownership. Around 1725, a new room was added to the east and an additional half story was constructed. Timothy’s brother Samuel was a carpenter. When Timothy died in 1774, his son Francis took possession.
Francis owned the house until his death in 1808 when his son Daniels became owner. A large two story post and beam section was added to the west as an addition in 1810. Son Daniels became the seventh owner in 1854. His son, Francis D. Hamant, became the eight owner during the years 1874 and 1925. Various owners from then have been Tibbit, Fisher, Winslow, Hann, Selmer, Cone and presently Bickley. The Bickley’s expanded the homestead in 1988 to include a family room and master suite. The current two story barn was added in 2003 with a four season sun room. An original 36 by 72 feet barn’s field stone foundation is still present on the property. It’s height was said to have been 60 feet.
The Hamant Homestead had been in the possession of the family from its beginning until well into the 20th century. This was the only case of its kind among the first thirteen founders of Medfield.
