John Hamilton (MP)

John Hamilton (MP)

John Hamilton (4 February, 1715 – 12 February, 1796) was a Scottish MP in the British Parliament. He was the younger son of John Dalrymple, 2nd Earl of Stair and changed his name to Hamilton in 1736 when he inherited the estate of Bargeny on the death of the 4th Lord Bargeny.

He represented Wigtown Burghs 1754-1761 and 1762-1768. He was also MP for Wigtownshire 1761-February 1762.

Hamilton was a friend of Frederick, Prince of Wales and supported the Grenvilles in politics. He was an energetic man, who enthusiastically promoted negotiatied arrangements in 1754 and 1762 which led to the rival Stewart family supporting him as MP for Wigtown Burghs in exchange for Dalrymple support in the Wigtownshire constituency.
