I am currently researching the origins of the Irish national flag...I would be grateful if anyone has any further information on the family links of Joseph Hamilton who may have been the man who inspired the flag of  green, white and orange ..

According to the "Irish Rush-light "of 1831, Amelia Eleanor Hamilton of Annadale Cottage,Dublin Ireland ,presented a cockade of orange ,white and green to the chairman ,The Marquis of Westmeath, at a function in Dublin in September 1830 ,

In a covering letter she mentioned that her father had worn a similar cockade in his hat ..Her father may have been Joseph Hamilton of Annadale Cottage who had written several books ...I do have some information on Joseph Hamilton , including a picture of him but I am trying to establish if he was the person alluded to by Amelia Eleanor.

This is a link to one of Joseph Hamilton's books which can be read and which can be downloaded from the internet..

Thank you ,Michael.I have since come with several other leads ...John Hamilton ,James Hamilton and Amelia (Emelia) Hamilton who may not be the Amelia Eleanor of the orange green and white cockade story.

They all seem to have had a great pride in the name "Annadale Cottage" because there are a number of references to the Hamiltons and the name of their dwelling appears in almost every reference.

There is currently an Annadale Cottage in Dublin but this is a Chinese takeaway and does not seem to have any connection with the one from all those years ago.

Anthony,

Have you reached out to the Irish Roots Project?

I changed your Irish Tag to irish-roots to help capture their attention, but you can reach out directly to them as well.
