It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system

but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Hamilton 8

: Hamilton of Ardoch, Hamilton of Craighlaw, Hamilton of Ladyland, Hamilton of Udston
Andrew Hamilton, 1st of Udston a 1392, 1406
There is some uncertainty on the identity of this Agnes as the heritable Sheriffdom of Ayr had passed from the Crawford family to the Campbells of Loudon at the beginning of the 14th century. In a web site on Sorn Castle, Agnes is identified as daughter of Sir Hugh Campbell of Loudoun should be Andrew or George ? so it is possible that the primary records identify her simply as "dau of the Sheriff of Ayr" and 'Heraldry of the Hamiltons' simply mistook the family name.
1. Sir Robert Hamilton, 2nd of Udston
'Heraldry of the Hamiltons' identifies Elizabeth as daughter of "Craufurd of Lochnorris, brother of the Sheriff of Ayr". The name Sir William comes from the above-referred web site on Sorn Castle.
A. John Hamilton
B. Patrick Hamilton, 3rd of Udston
There is a query on whether or not this Isabel has been rightly identified. See note in 'Lindsay02'.
i. Elizabeth Hamilton dvp
Their son John became the 4th of Udston.
C. Sir William Hamilton of Sorn William of Sorn was possibly of this family rather than that of Cambuskeith which is where he is presently shown in this site

3. Robert Hamilton of Thornton and Neherurd a 1557
A. James Hamilton, 4th of Ardoch d 02.1628
i. Gavin Hamilton, 5th of Ardoch d 04.1636
There is some uncertainty as to whether Gavin married Margaret, dau of Alexander Cunninghame, Commendator of Kilwinning, or he had a daughter who married Alexander Cunninghame, Commendator of Kilwinning. Both together is unlikely.
