I had not thought of A for Arthur, but it gives us all more food for thought. I suppose to nail this A. Hamilton down, we would have to get more details about his activities during the seige of Derry(if such exist). Will hold on to your posting and see what develops.

Arthur Hamilton, a son of Sir William Hamilton of Manor Elistoun, by his first unofficial marriage, who was born circa 1623 and who claimed the townland of Dunbunrawer as a fee farm from his grandfather, Sir Claude Hamilton, of Manor Elistoun who died in 1614, in Dublin.
