Allan Hamilton of Fairholm (d 1470)
We are following Anderson in showing the following Alan, who is the first mentioned by 'HamiltonHistory', as son of this Allan because that is supported by BLG1952. However, as mentioned on the continuation, 'HamiltonHistory' finds this connection to be "improbable". HJHeraldry says that this Allan "was possibly father of" ...
1. Allan (Alan) Hamilton of Fairholm (d 1530)
  A. Robert Hamilton of Fairholm (d 1569)
  i. Robert Hamilton of Fairholm (d 1578)
  a. Robert Hamilton of Fairholm (d before 1585)
  ii. Patrick Hamilton of Fairholm (a 1585, d before 1656, 3rd son)
  BLG1952 reports that the above Robert (a 1578) was succeeded by this Patrick. Anderson moves from Allan (son of Allan) to Patrick without showing how they were connected. HJHeraldry shows just 2 generations of Roberts and reports that, after the 2nd, "The next was" this Patrick. 'HamiltonHistory' reports that he was probably uncle of the 3rd Robert, as shown.
