James Hamilton, 1st of Raploch (a 1440)
1. William Hamilton, 2nd of Raploch
  m. Margaret Baillie (dau of Sir William Baillie of Lamington)

  m. Isobel Weir (dau of ?? Weir of Blackwood)
  i. James Hamilton, 1st of Stonehouse, Provost of Edinburgh (d 1548, Governor of Edinburgh Castle)
  'HamiltonHistory' differs from Anderson as to the identification of James's children and to their attribution between his wives. We follow 'HamiltonHistory' but Anderson shows Margaret as mother of Margaret & Janet (Jean) (both of whom are shown by 'HamiltonHistory' as daughters of his son John) with Grizel being mother of James, John, Robert, Archibald, Alexander, Thomas, Grizel & Janet.
  m1. Margaret Mowat (dau/heir of Alexander Mowat of Stonehouse or Stanehouse (Mouat of Stenhouse))

  m. (before 01.1562) John Menzies of Castlehill
  b. John Hamilton of Stonehouse (b c1533, d 19.05.1579)
Anderson shows just 1 wife for John, Joane/Joneta dau of Sir David Hamilton of Preston, mother of James, John (no details given), Jean & Abigail. 'HamiltonHistory' shows as follows.
  m1. (mcrt 19.07.1549, Jean or Jonet Baillie (widow of _ Muirhead of Criddeldykes, possibly of family of Carphin) ## see here ##
  (1) John Hamilton of Stonehouse (d before 20.07.1602)

  (i) James Hamilton of Stonehouse (b c1605, d 02.1636)
  Anderson reports "I have been unable to trace this family further." HJHeraldry (Hamilton, 'Stanehouse', p59+), which supports the above, continues by identifying James's wife and mother of James (d 1651), Andrew & John, as Elizabeth Williamson. However, 'HamiltonHistory' (p840) reports that this James's widow was Barbara Hamilton, mother of James, Barbara & Jean. 'HamiltonHistory' (Mylneholme (Parish of Stonehouse)', p607+), which supports most of the following, identifies Elizabeth Williamson as mother of James, Andrew, John, Nicholas & Helen but does not mention Barbara Hamilton. We presume to show as follows.
