James Hamilton

James Hamilton (1804?-1894) was an engineer and a councillor.

Born in Greenock, Hamilton came to Glasgow in 1839 to work at the Stobcross offices of Robert Barclay & Co. In 1845 he became a partner with Robert Curle in Barclay, Curle & Co, retiring from the business in 1879. His sons James and John also made careers as engineers and became partners in Robert Napier & Sons.

Hamilton served on the Town Council from 1867 until 1884.
