Lady Anne Hamilton, was born in November 1738, the only daughter of James Hamilton, 5th Duke of Hamilton, and his third wife, Anne Spencer, a daughter and co-heir of Edward Spencer, of Rendlesham, Suffolk.;
She married 16 November 1761, at Easton, Suffolk, Arthur Chichester, 5th Earl and later 1st Marquess of Donegall, son of Hon. John Chichester and Elizabeth Newdegate, and nephew and heir of Arthur Chichester, 4th Earl of Donegall. Lady Anne was only ever known as the Countess of Donegall, as she died before her husband was created Marquess on 4 July 1791.
Lady Anne died at Bath on 11 November 1780 after a long illness, and was buried on 22 November 1780 at St Michael's, Lichfield.
A source unknown calls Lady Anne Hamilton's mother Elizabeth Spencer, one of the two daughters and co-heiresses of Edward Spencer of Rendlesham, Suffolk, but Cokayne in two different volumes (see above) gives her name as Anne.
