We were contacted by Debbie Lacy-Anderson who lives in America. Debbie wrote:
“Hi Garry-I was excited to find your page! I am researching my family connection to Hamilton-as my daughter and I prepare to visit in October.
My 11 X G,Grandfather, John Ellyson of Lanarkshire married Elin Hamilton, who from what I have been able to discover her father was Robert Hamilton. Would you be able to point me toward any other resources that would help me confirm this connection? I really appreciate any help you might be able to give! Best, Debbie”.
I had explained to Debbie, that I had never come across this connection to the Hamilton Family. However, as I know that there are many family researchers on Historic Hamilton, i thought that I would ask you guys.
So, during your research, have any of our group members come across a family connection to John Ellyson of Lanarkshire? Or indeed, a connection to this family in America. If you do, then please feel free to get in touch.
