    • (Research):The names of Thomas and Ester are not definitely known, but for various reasons such as living in the same place at the same time, enlisting in the Revolutionary War at the same place and time, and having children with the same names etc. Therefore, Thomas Hamilton/Hambleton, who deceased 1772, naming the two sons who are still living in the home in his will, and whos wife is Esther (Sampson?) and living in Bedford County, Virginia, but married in Maryland on January 30, 1753 in Hartfo rd County. (Maryland Hall of Records, St. John's Parish Register, 1700-1760 (m.1011) page 207)

      According to family tradition the Hamiltons are of Scottish descent, coming first to the state of Delaware and thence to Maryland; and from there to Bedford County, Virginia and thence to Sullivan County, Tennessee before coming to Floyd Co., KY . All of this time they spelled their name Hambleton, the Scottish spelling of Hamilton. Their first deeds for land was spelled Hamilton.
