Tyrone, and Robert Hamilton is found in the precinct of Magheriboy, in Co. Fermanagh. Sir Alexander Hamilton, of Endervicke, Scotland, was found in Tuyllyhunco, in Co. Caven.

Milesian families gives the name in Dublin, Donegal, Downand Cavan arriving in 1640 from Scotland. In the 1890 birth index the name is found in Antrim, Down, Tyrone, and Londonderry. The spelling of Hamiltone was used in the census of 1659 to record the name in County Down.
