?? Hamilton
m. Jonet Douglas (dau of George, Master of Douglas)
'HamiltonHistory' reports that Jonet was spouse of John Lyon, Lord Glamis in 1531 and was still alive in 1554. The connection is to Janet, dau of George, Master of Douglas, who most fits that description BUT that Janet is known to have been burnt at the stake in 1537 having been married to John Lyon, Lord Glamis, who died in 1528, and then Archibald Campbell. Hence the connection should be viewed as "a bit dodgy".
