Hamilton Family History

Hamilton Genealogy & Family Tree

Hamilton is a Scottish name from Renfrewhshire, Scotland, where it came from the Earl of Mellent, who migrated from Normandy in the 11th Century. It comes from the Old English words hamel (blunt) and dun (hill). It may also originate from the English village of Hamilton in Leicestershire, England. The family motto is Adest prudenti animus, which means “Courage belongs to the prudent.”

Other spellings include “Hamelton,” “Hameldon,” “Hamildon,” “Hamylton,” and “Hambleton.” Notable people with the surname include American NASCAR driver Bobby Hamilton, American jazz musician Chico Hamilton, and American actress Margaret Hamilton (best known as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz). The first Hamilton to come to America was David Hamilton in Massachusetts in 1651.
