Families covered: Hamilton of Milburne (Millburn)

'HamiltonHistory' reports that, according to Anderson, Baillie suggests that "this family was descended from Thomas Hamilton of Darngaber, a son of Sir John Hamilton of Cadzow, whereas Crawfurd says it derived from Robert, son of John Hamilton of Whistlebery, son of Sir James Hamilton of Cadzow ... (but that) neither is likely".
