  • Note:

    In 1489 Alexander Hamilton, of Cambuskeith, the fourth in direct succession, was served heir to his father.
    He married Marion, daughter of Sir Adam Cunninghame, of Caprington, so that he had not to go far for the lady fair, for Caprington Castle was just across the Irvine, and Sir Adam was his nearest neighbour.
    His son John was killed in 1544 on the "Muir of Glasgow," probably Mearns Muir, and very likely in one of the feuds of the period.
