a jane hamilton mar capt rober tcooper of chester co , so car ...
and supposedly this jane hamilton was born in st agusutin , fla and was from a fmaily from new jersey andher father was brother of the hamilton that was father of alexander hamilton of new jersey and ny who was first usa secretary of the treasury etc
and hamilton is / can be a scot name and people have coat of arms which they were GIVEN e.g. by the crown/ king or they can BUY it ... and it normally ONLY belongs go the person who obtained it BUT many times then descendants of that person also use it when it really ONLY belonged to that one person who first obtained it... BUT this is a tangle of rules ... a family as a duke, earl etc has assigned NOT to one person but to the family a coat of arms ... but only the elder son is supposed to use that coat of arms and younger sons use a different version that has thingies on it to indicate they are a younger son etc etc etc
later in so carolina was a governor JAMES HAMILTON about ???? not sure of date 1790-18209 time frame and he left and went to texas where he died about ???? 1830
and he had about 15 plantations ... and had those with a john couper (note the u) that was on st simons island, ga
so because of those two cooper connections i have a side hobby of slowly accreting info on hamiltons ... share any you have about these so car hamiltons...
