I am looking for anyone who is researching the HAMILTON family in Tullylish
Parish, County Down.
I only know that Margaret HAMILTON married William PHAIR, 1839, townland of
Clare. Witnesses were Alexander & William HAMILTON..
Margaret emmigrated to New Zealand, & when she died, Joseph Hamilton was
given as her father.
Possible that Alexander & William were brothers of Margaret.
Elleanor, was probably a sister, she married 1835, to Samuel FINLAY, also in
witnesses, Joseph & William HAMILTON.
Maybe Joseph had died by the 1839 marr. of Margaret.
Elleanor & Samuel FINLAY emmigrated to New Zealand 1862.
My Grandfather apparently used to say that the family came from Scotland
originally. This was probably the " Plantation " of the 1600's.
Looking for any information
