'The House of Hamilton' shows William (shown by both GenEU and TCP as an elder brother of the 4th Earl) to be a younger brother of that Earl and a possible ancestor of the Hamilton family in Scotland. As any surviving male issue of a brother of the Earl would have had an easy claim on the earldom, this would only have been likely had the issue not been legitimate (which of course may have been the case) or had been formally attainted (which is unlikely as a record of this would certainly have been made). However, it is noted that William's brother Roger was a key figure in Scotland around the time of (or just before) the appearance of the first proven member of the Hamilton family (see Hamilton01).
