THE ol. is the chief representative in the male line of the illustrious house of Hamilton. His ancestors have frequently intermarried into the royal family of Scotland, and have been acknowledged by the parliament of that country as the presumptive heirs to the crown, in the person of James Hamilton, earl of Arran, who was chosen, in 1542, protector to queen Mary, during her minority, and ... 2d persom of the realm; and, in failure of issue in the queen, her successor to the throne of Scotland. JAMEs, 3d lord Hamilton, was created earl of Arran in 1503, whose son, JAMEs, 2d earl, presumptive heir to the crown of Scotland, was created duke of Chatelherault, in 1549, by Henry II. of France. He left issue 4 sons, viz. 1. James, 3d earl, d. S.p.; 2. John, ancestor of the dukes of Hamilton (see that title); 3. CLAUDE, ancestor of the present marquess of Abercorn; 4. David, d. young.

* The marquess asserts his right to the French title of duke of Chatelherault, borne by the duke of Hamilton, upon the ground that, on failure of heirs male in the elder branch of the house of Hamilton, by the death of William, 2d duke of Hamilton, at the battle of Worcester, in 1651, the earls of Abercorn became the heirs male and representatives of the family, and that by

the law of France, titles of honour were strictly descendible to heirs male to the exclusion of females; the claim to this dignity was accordingly brought forward by James, 6th earl, in 1712, at the peace of Utrecht, and it is inscribed on the monument erected in the family burying ground at the abbey of Paisley, among the #. and titles of James, 8th earl of Abercorn.
