Hello John, just a note about The Complete Peerage. It was not compiled until the early 20th century (1st volume was 1910). It consists of 13 A4 size volumes, and really it is THE bible on the Peerage etc. It was constantly re-researched, revised and updated by a team of editors. The volume the Hamiltons are in is no.iv (1926). The CP improved a lot of errors/assumptions made in the slightly earlier Scots' Peerage by Balfour-Paul.

Thanks again John for you earlier comments. The confusion between the true son of John Hamilton 4th Baron of Cadzow and possible sons (adoptive or otherwise) of Janet Dalkeith Douglas was possibly due to her having children from Y-DNA haplogroup I lovers. The Douglases were haplogroup I. All of my evidence points to this, and can be found on my family tree ( Michael Hamilton Family Tree ). I definitely, as I have stated in the comments that you have previously responded, would not rely on Gordon Hamilton's research. His group at originally stated that my Y-DNA haplogroup was R-S7049, a subclade of R1b-L21, which is a totally different than the R1b-L238 to which I actually belong, ending at BY-3451. This corresponds to my pedigree and "well documented" Y-DNA.

Thanks John for your reply to my comments about the profiles of the earlier Hamiltons. I am a member of the Hamilton Surname Group on FTDNA which helped to trace the males of the Hamilton (my Y-DNA R1b1a2a1a2d, L238/S182, R-BY3451 , subclade of R1b1a1a2 ) line to Norway and Sweden (Not to Germany.) For some reason the PSU site group with Gordon Hamilton in charge, had my haplogroup as H-591 (later changed as I contacted him). Also, a "well documented" (as you and some others have used to indicate some authenticity) source for you to see will be the The heraldry of the Hamiltons : with notes on all the males of the family, description of the arms, plates and pedigrees

by Johnston, G. Harvey (George Harvey), 1860-1921.

One of your profiles, Fardon-2, has a year of birth that is inconsistent with the year of birth of his daughter. Could you please change it as it has been left as a locked profile. (Database corrections project)

Hello John,

I am looking for information on Edward Hamilton born in Nova Scotia and died in Lilydale. Do you know when he came out and what ship? Robert Hamilton son Robert born in 1801-1888

posted by Rolfe Stok Mr
Thank you so much for your helpful information. I've been looking for James Hamilton from Lanarkshire, Scotland, for quite some time now. His son, James Alexander Hamilton (1758-1800), was my 4th Great Grandfather. If I am understanding this info correctly, then James Alexander Hamilton and Alexander Hamilton were brothers. Please clarify if I have this info wrong. Information about the Hamilton family during the 1700s has been a little sketchy. Thanks again!
