Lt Thomas Hamilton RN that you refer to is probably the father of Thomas Hamilton (died after 1887) who married Frances May Armstrong in 1858.

Dear Fermaniard - Thank you of your message - Looking for the family of Lt Thomas Hamilton, RN who married Anne, daughter of John Miller, Ballintra.  Lt Thomas, I hope, is the father of Mary Hume Hamilton marrying James Tedlie.  I agree of your reply.

O'Byrne's Naval Biography of 1849 has an entry for Lieut.Thomas Hamilton (b. 1 Aug 1801) that shows he married Ann Miller of Rossyvolan House, Ballintree, Co Donegal on 28 Dec 1828, and that they had four sons and three daughters.

He lead quite an interesting life joining the navy as an able seaman taking part in the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812 with America. He subsequently served with the Coast Blockade Service where he was severely wounded in a fight with smugglers. He later transferred to the Coastguard Service and was Chief Officer at Larne CG Station in 1840.

I you were looking to take Thomas Hamilton back a further generation, the National Archives hold the Lieut. Passing Certificate  for a Thomas Hamilton who passed his board in 1818 this seems a strong possibility and is in ADM 107/50 pages 398-400, and ADM 6/115 page 99, the first includes details of his birth.

Dear Martin - Thank you for the information - but - The National Archives tell me that the data is not to be digitized or printed - unfortunately London is too far from California - Take care - Richard

I didn’t see anyone mention the Ulster Directory of Doctors, so I thought I’d have a look.  I don’t think this has anything new, but you never know...

ARMSTRONG, WILLIAM (d 1860), Muff, Co Donegal, Culmore, Co Londonderry, and Collooney, Co Sligo:
Eldest son of William Armstrong, surgeon, of Sligo [?]; LRCSI 1817; MD (Edin) 1826 (thesis ‘De fibre puerperali’); LM Rot Hosp Dub; physician of Foyle Street, Londonderry c1838-40; medical officer to Muff Dispensary District and constabulary, of Culmore, county Londonderry, c1845; later medical officer to Collooney Dispensary District; married 14 November 1829in Aghavea Church of Ireland Church, county Fermanagh, Frances Haire, daughter of Hamilton Haire of Glasdrummon [where?]; died 15 August 1860 at his home in Collooney.  [BNL 20 Nov 1829 (m), 20 Jan 1832 (b), 15 Jan 1833 (b), 19 Oct 1838 (b), 20 Mar 1840 (b) and 21 Aug 1860 (d); Croly (1843-6); Edin Univ; Kirkpatrick Archive; Londonderry Sentinel 21 Nov 1829 (m); Med Dir].


I’ve a funny feeling I’ve got a tenuous link to the Hamiltons via my McCausland ancestors from Limavady.  Whatever the link is I wasn’t sure enough about it to put it in my family tree...
