John who married Mary HAMILTON 1624
« on: Tuesday 12 January 21 02:50 GMT (UK) »
Mary was the daughter of Sir Robert HAMILTON of Silvertonhill and his wife Eliz. Baillie.

trees have her marrying Sir John SOMERVILLE of Cambusnethan, but this does not look at all like Somerville or Cambusnethan to me.

Is it ELVINSTONE?   And what is the place?

I think it is STEVENSON.   Still can't figure out the place

Maybe Uddingston, Lanarkshire, Hamilton territory.
 Hamilton of Silvertonhill married a Baillie heiress. The last canon of the Provan of Glasgow Cathedral at the Reformation, was a Baillie who managed to get hold of the lands of the Provan. The Baillie's ran out & had no male heir  hence the Hamilton match. The hall is worth a visit as is Glasgows oldest house Provands Lordship. town house of the canons.

Bests,
Skoosh.

Thank you Skoosh.

As in “Uddin.” Do you think.
I’ve found quite a few Hamilton genealogies online, but so far am having no luck with the Stevenson place.

John Stevenson?

John Hamilton of Udston, Burnbank, Hamilton, an ancestor of Lord Belhaven, a better fit than Uddingston ;D

Yes. But this is a transcription job.  I am supposed to put what I see, not what I think is correct 😀

Udston is elsewhere on the document and looks quite different to this word.

Bear in mind that the replies you get on Rootschat, while of no apparent use, might benefit another researcher years hence!  ;D
