Have you checked the 1881 census of Hamilton?If you father is on that it would tell, you where he was born.
That would be a big help to me.There are Essons in the Orkney Islands, Angus County and then in Aberdeen where my Esson family lived.
Later my family moved to Lanark.
If you are not near a Family History Centre where they have the 1881 census, then you could ask someone to look it up for you.
There are plenty of people in genealogy that have the 1881 census on disc.
