Hamon de Mascey,lll founded the Abbey Birkett, a Benedictine Monastery, at Birkenhead in the Wirrall Peninsula of Cheshire. It had sixteen Monks and a Prior, and was dedicated to St. Mary and St. James.
The Monastery existed until 1536 when it was dissolved by Henry Vlll. Hamon lived during the later part of the reign of King Stephen and during the entire reign of King Henry ll, Plantagenet, which ended in 1189.
Hamon lll may have been compelled to forfeit several of the original estates granted to the first Hamon by reason of his participation in the 1172 rebellion against King Henry ll.
Hamon lll was in opposition to King Henry ll from his Castle in Ullerwood. Just below Knutsford. His activities were undertaken in conjunction with those of Gervaise Painel, the son in law of Ferrers, the Earl of Derby.
It was Gervaise who held the fee of Pownell immediately to the east of Knutsford.,Barrons Hamon lll, Geoffrey de Constantine of Stockport and Richard de Morville at Lauder seemed to have been the leaders of the rebel lords of Cheshire.
In 1173 King Henry ll English Barons overcame Hamonll and the other Cheshire Lords. Hamon lll was fined 300 Marks and his companion Gervaise Painel, had his stronghold., Dudley Castle, burned to the ground.
