Hi Joe,

I have just sent my cousin a link to your post as he is older than me and knew the Hamiltons. Also his late wife was related to Whitty. Alan lives just outside Hamilton which is the city in which Melville is a suburb.

I will  send you some of the photos that I have already scanned from Aunt Kates album that we can identify and in the weekend I will scan some of the Londonderry ones which we cannot identify so must be Hamiltons. Kate Hamilton was "Aunt Kate" to my mother who I will be meeting up with later this afternoon.

Cheers

Hi Joe,

Thank you for your recent message. Unfortunately I have been unable to reply to you directly, so that is why I am replying to your forum post. I think my mother 'Carolyn' may be your 2nd cousin.

Any information you have will be greatly received as I am really interested to know move of the family.

Do you know of Joseph Boyd Hamilton? (My grandfather and James Hamilton's son)

Hope to hear from you soon, and take care
Laurene

I am your great-uncle colin mentioned in your post. I have ust been visiting your grandfather Boyd and your search was mentioned. Both your great and great-great grandfathers were named James. The oldest set up the factory and was mayor, His sons James and Joeseph inherited the factory. My dad James was High Sheriff but not mayor of Londonderry. Elizabeth was a Sister (not Matron ) in Altnagelvin but was later Matron of a couple of Nursing homes on both sides of the border. Alan died under her care in Donegal a few years ago. Ian is alive and well in Australia. You have lots of cousins, most  of whom I know about. I have registered on this site so you can respond to me.

Hello great uncle Colin, nice to hear from you and thanks for reaching out.

I am Laurene, Carolyn's daughter (as you properly already know). I've been researching the Hamilton family tree on & off for 5 years and it's such a big family with lots of history. I have a family tree and some pictures of the Mayor that were sent to me by Joe Hamilton who is the grandson of Joseph Hamilton, who was James' (Mayor) brother.

Does that mean your dad, my great-great grandfather James was High Sheriff, who also inherited the shirt factory? 

Best wishes, Laurene
