and two bankrupting wars instead.

b. William Hamilton of Mackneirstom later of Sorn and Sanquhar
This connection is being investigated. A web site on Sorn Castle suggests that William Hamilton of Sorn was a younger son of the Udston line rather than of Cambuskeith. The following looks strange in that the Isabel who married Robert Sempill is shown a generation later than the Isabel who married George Seton who is reputed to be the heiress of Sorn, yet the dates overlap. It may be that William of Sanquhar perhaps of this line was different from William of Sorn perhaps of the Udston line.
