I am in contact with relatives of THE HAMILTON HUME so I'm sure Hamilton must be related somewhere.

Surnames: HUME
My friends are descended from John HUME b 1806 at WHiniff?? berwickshire SCT who married Emily Fenton in Sydney circa 1838.
He was, they think, the son of David Hume and Janet Houlistoun. He named one of his sons Hamilton Hume ( and another Kendall Thompson Hume.

The name Hamilton has passed down threough the generations in Australia. There has always been the story of the family's relationship with Hamilton Hume the Australian explorer but they have not been able to prove it.

There was even a report (I'm hazy on the details) of one descendant, NOT named HUME who went to (I think) a dentist who discovered some rare condition and said to the patient "You must be descended from Hamilton Hume. He had this condition and only his relatives have it too."

This has made the family now determined to find the link to Hamilton Hume. Can you help link them up? I have looked at H Hume's ancestry but cannot find the birth of any David in 1806.

Thanks on advance,
Marie in Sydney

We are looking for Mary Jane Hume who married John Adaway and had my ggrandmother Eva Mary Adaway born in Gunnedah.

We believe that Mary Jane was the daughter of Henry Hume and Catherine Taylor?

Any info would be much appreciated

Hi Marie,
I am descended from John Hume born 1806...apparently he is my great, great, great grandfather...ie going back 5 generations...

I too grew up with the family story of being related to Hamilton Hume the explorer, but from what I have now I don't think so :-((.

Please forward and my email to your friends...

Regards
Jennie Mulligan

Please note I am sharing an Ancestry account with my friend, so the name is different.

I would love to have any info you have that confirms or denies my friend's link to Hamilton Hume's family. Thankyou so much.

I guess I can't tell you what you really want to know! However, apparently my father - long dead - looked into this and decided that there is no traceable link.
However, the Hume family come from a fairly limited area of Scotland and use the same Christian names over and over, so he concluded they are connected.
The info I do have is about John Hume and his wife who came to Australia. My grandfather was Kendal Hume, and my sister and I are his only descendants. If anyone from that line wants to contact me I would be very happy. Jenny
