Susan Balfour Portrait

Susan Balfour

Just found this portrait of my ancestor Susan Balfour, she was the daughter of of Sir Michael Balfour, 6th Bt. She married Robert Hamilton, 6th of Wishaw, son of William Hamilton, 4th of Wishaw and Bethia Hamilton. She is an ancestor of both the Barnton and Gogar branches of the Ramsay family and therefore my Maitland relatives. Her daughter Hon. Jean Hamilton married George Ramsay of Barnton (George Ramsay Maitland’s grandfather). Her daughter Bethia Hamilton married William Ramsay of Gogar (cousin of George Ramsay of Barnton). Her granddaughter Susan Mary Hamilton married Peter Ramsay (so of William Ramsay of Gogar).
