James Hamilton of Bogges, 1st of Dalzell (d 02.1668)
BP1934 reports that James married Jean Henderson and had (by her) Alexander, Robert, James "and many other children". Anderson shows the same, naming just Anne in addition. 'HamiltonHistory' shows more (all?) of the children but shows also 2 other marriages as follows.
