Over the years various Listers have contacted me in connection with the name
"Hamilton". I have in the past couple of days discovered the following:
John Robert, a Telegraph Officer and Isabella Hamilton his wife, had 3 children:
1. John Robert Walter Hamilton born 20/05/1875 Baptised 11/07/1875 (whose complete
details I now have, thanks to Lawrie Butler of FIBIS)
2. George Hamilton born 26/11/1876 and Baptised 29/12/1876 in Gauhati, Assam.
3. Stella Hamilton - date of birth and Baptism unknown though I assume born in Gauhati
Stella may have been the eldest child as John Robert Hamilton married Isabella Culbert
(widow of John Gerald Culbert) daughter of Robert Fury in Shillong on 26/06/1871.
The last known address for both George and Stella was St Thomas Mount, Madras.
Should any lister have any information on George and Stella Hamilton I would be grateful
to hear from you.
