Thank you for the details and to your contributors. I live in Kent, England, but originally came from Kilkenny in Ireland. I was always curious about our origins, particularly the technical, scientific and mathematical interests that seem to run through the family. Then I read about Sir William Rowan Hamilton from Dublin when I studied the Hamiltonian Operator in University Mathematics. I like the name.
Hmmmm, Patrick, might we be from the same branch?? My Hamilton ggranparents came from Kilkenny in the mid 1800's, to Massachusetts, finally to Bridgeport, CT. Philip Hamilton of Kilkenny married Margaret Cullen. I do NOT have the math tech gene! However, some of my uncles were very tech savvy!
Thank you I am really exited to be a part of the Hamilton namesake My mother has quite a geneology on her maiden name, and is now researching the Hamilton name.

I forgot the surname of Matthew was HAMILTON IN THE ABOVE ADD.

I do not know where you got it that Hamilton is of Anglo Saxon origin, because I have always known it to be Norman origin. There is a lot you do not have here that tells the true history of the Hamiltons. There is a Hamilton DNA project going on Family Tree DNA and there is a lot to know.

Looking for some information on a Andrew Hamilton who lived in Ireland during the mid to late 1800's.
Wrong century but I am an Andrew Hamilton living in Northern Ireland (which is part of Britain so the Ireland bit is out, but ah well. Coincidence is all.
any Hamilton from Liverpool, England? all what i know is that my grandfather Charles Alexander Hamilton Briggs was a goldigger came to America around 1900 specifically California, his sister Helen Hamilton decided to saty in Cerritos California, then he decided to try luck in Oaxaca, Mexico
Love your site. Your Hamilton info helped shed some light on "my" Hamiltons and their origins.
