  • Hello!

    I am looking for a birth, marriage certificates etc. For a John Hamilton(farmer) born abt. 1813 in Omagh, Tyrone.
    He came to Canada abt. 1844. He came with 2 sons WilliamJ (1835) and Henry (1841).

    I believe they were Prespbyterian(Free Church)
    There is a story that John Hamilton was a land owner. He was thought to have killed 2 poachers on his land.
    His wife was thought to be Margaret/Mary Patton/Patterson. It is thought that she had passed before John Hamilton and his sons came to Canada.

    Thank-you for your time with this. Any information would be appreciated.

    • Hello Elaine

      Thanks for contacting me via my website. Best to do it direct via this email address.

      Just to be aware that marriage certificates were introduced by the civil authorities from 1845; births and deaths from 1864. These are searchable. Thus we are reliant on Church records of marriages and baptisms for the timescale and without knowing the location within County Tyrone it may be an impossible task. Hamilton was a very common name and there are over 1700 references to Hamilton families in 1860 in County Tyrone.

      I will give it more consideration and come back to you.
