About William Hamilton


It has been suggested, without satisfactory evidence, that William Hamilton here mentioned is the son of Alexander Hamilton of Grange, and his wife, Elizabeth Pollock, but this suggestion seems to be founded upon a pedigree submitted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints [Ancestral File, database, FamilySearch] https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:1:MWL3-6VM and may be nothing more than conjecture. It is certainly true that two published accounts of the family assert otherwise:-

(11) G. Harvey Johnston, FSA (Scot)., The Heraldry of the Hamiltons with Notes on all the Males of the Family, Descriptions of the Arms, Plates and Pedigrees (W. & A. K. Johnston Limited, Edinburgh & London, MCMIX), pp. 120-21. See page 121 for the family of Alexander Hamilton of Grange, and his wife, Elizabeth Pollock] https://archive.org/stream/heraldryofhamils00john#page/121/mode/1up

(2) John Anderson, Historical and Genealogical Memoirs of the House of Hamilton with Genealogical Memoirs of the several Branches of the Family (John Anderson, Jun., Limited, Edinburgh, MDCCCXXV), pp. 254-57.
