Lady Anne Cochrane was the eldest daughter of John Cochrane, 4th Earl of Dundonald, and his first wife, Lady Anne Murray. Her exact birth date is unknown, but she must have been born in 1707, before 14 August, as she is described as being in her 18th year (i.e. she had her 17th birthday) when she died on 14 August 1724.
She and her two sisters, Catharine, Countess of Galloway and Susan, Countess of Strathmore were celebrated for their beauty.
She married on 14 February 1723, James Hamilton, 5th Duke of Hamilton, as his first wife, but died of the effects of childbirth ('in child bed') on 14 August 1724 as mentioned previously.
They had one son:
James Hamilton, born 10 July 1724, who succeeded his father as 6th Duke of Hamilton.
