Yoshihisa Homma was appointed shugodai of Sado in 1185. The clan established its rule from Sawata. The clan gave birth to two new branches, the Hamochi-Homma and the Kawaharada-Homma. Those two branches eventually prevailed over the head clan and opposed each other. Uesugi Kenshin, ruler of the Echigo Province at the time, settled the ongoing conflicts between Hamochi-Homma and Kawaharada-Homma. His death sparked a new rows of hostilities between the two branches, but Uesugi Kagekatsu invaded Sado in 1589, putting an end to the clan's rule.
