A. John Hamilton of Dulatter

  i. John Hamilton of Dunnemanagh, co. Tyrone (a 05.1741)
a. William Hamilton of Dunnemanagh (Dunnymana) (b 1708, d 30.07.1762, MP)
  The following is supported by TCB (vol 5, 'Hamilton of Dunaman', p401+).
m. (c1735) Catherine Leslie (dau of Rev. George Leslie of Clones)
  (1) Sir John Stewart (Stuart) Hamilton of Dunnemanagh (Dunamana), Sheriff of co. Tyrone then co. Dublin, 1st Bart (b c17401, d 04.1802, MP)

  m2. (c11.1770) Sophia Hamilton (dsps, dau of Frederick Hamilton, 3rd Viscount Boyne, by Bridget Mooney)
  (A) child (d c1803)
  'HamiltonHistory' identifies John's last wife as Susan, dau of _Meecum of Samper & niece of Lady Ormond. TCB identifies her as ...
  m3/4.(c1774) Susanna Maguire (dau of Philip Maguire of Tempo by Frances, dau of Nicholas Morres of Lateragh)
  (B) Sir John Charles Hamilton of Dunnemanagh (Dunamana), 2nd Bart (dsp 13.12.1818)
  'HamiltonHistory' suggests that John d unm but TCB suggests that he married as follows.
m1. Catherine McCormick
  m2. (after 1806) Anne Allen (widow of _ Alexander)
  m4/3. (1800) Jane Hamilton (dau of William Hamilton of Grange & Lisdiven House)
  Jane is shown by 'HamiltonHistory' as John's 3rd wife, whom he married in 1800. 'HamiltonHistory' does not give a date for John's marriage to Susan Meecum whilst TCB shows his marriage to a Susan being under licence dated 1774. We presume that, if this marriage to Jane took place, it was in fact after the marriage to Susan.
