    IGI submitted re James Young marriage gives her name as Anne Stuart Hamilton.
    ?Lord [!] Gavin Hamilton was born about 1761, allegedly in Lanark, Scotland. I have a picture of him that says Southcroft on the back, which was supposed to be one of this homes. I believe Springbank was another home. Lord Hamilton served in H. M. 72nd Regiment and was the British Surgeon General in 1782. In 1786 he married Lilly Marshall and they had at least one child: Anne Stuart Hamilton. Anne was married in 1825 to John Craig. The marriage took place at "Peelhill" in Avondale, Lanark, Scotland. Does anyone know anything of this family??
    Claimed to be 40 in 1841 census, although if she was born 1795 she would be 45 or 46.
    ?Mrs Craig daughter of my late husband? is mentioned in the 22 Jun 1853 will of Agnes Hamilton nee Paterson, second wife of Gavin Hamilton.
