Personal History

Claud Hamilton, second son of James Hamilton, Viscount Hamilton,[5] of Bentley Priory, Harrow, by Harriet[14] (Douglas), was born on 27 July 1813[3] at Lower Grosvenor Street[5] in the parish of St George Hanover Square, Middlesex, England. He was baptized on 12 October in the parish of Harrow-on-the-Hill.[14] His father died less than a year later. In 1818 he was raised to the rank of Marquess's son, becoming Lord by courtesy, upon the death of his grandfather John James Marquess of Abercorn and the succession of his elder brother James.[4]

Claud entered Harrow School in late 1825 or early 1826 and left in 1828.[4]

On 17 May 1832,[5] Claud was admitted as pensioner (the second of three ranks) at Trinity College, Cambridge. He matriculated in the Michaelmas term.

Claud was Member of Parliament (MP) for the County of Tyrone between 6 January 1835 and 24 July 1837 and between 6 May 1839 and 31 January 1874.[13]

On 27 February 1852, Claud was sworn of Queen Victoria's Most Honourable Privy Council (PC).[6] He was also appointed to be Treasurer of Her Majesty's Household[7] until resigning by 4 January 1853.[8]

Claud was again appointed to be Treasurer of Her Majesty's Household on 26 February 1858[9] until resigning by 23 June 1859.[10]

On 10 July 1866, Claud was appointed to be Vice-Chamberlain of Her Majesty's Household[11] until resigning by 12 December 1868.[12]
